When Airfoil for Windows is sending audio out from supported sources, an enhanced experience will be offered to the output device. Output such as Airfoil Speakers, the Apple TV, and many third-party AirPlay devices will show enhanced metadata including track titles and album artwork. They'll also be able to remotely control audio playback in the source application.
In the screenshot above, for instance, Airfoil Speakers is receiving audio from iTunes, via Airfoil. Album art and track titles are being shown, and remote control buttons are available to control playback.
At this time, the only Windows applications supported is iTunes.
We hope to add more supported sources, but we need help from developers, to make their audio applications scriptable.
Mac OS X Applications Offering an Enhanced Experience
