    You didn't install the install pack correctly then.

    Dunno - there are two files in the install pack, both should go to /usr/local/lib/

    why would i wanna stream music from my iphone to my mac?please people tell me,because i think this app is useless.banana tv is cool,its nice to stream video or photos from ur idevice to your mac considering the large display
    Why didn't you read thorugh the entire set of comments. I mentioned the benefits of this:
    Say, you want to play your music on a computer that isn't yours, such as a friend's computer or a Mac used as a presentation tool at a school or business.

    Also, it works with almost any app that allows for AirPlay audio streaming. So you could play non-iTunes media through a Mac's audio out, just like you could with an Airport Express or AppleTV.
    It basically means any audio output, even game audio and the like, can be pumped to a Mac as if it was an AppleTV/AirportEx. That's actually a good idea IMO, and a number of people were wanting this for a long time... even before AirTunes was renamed AirPlay. Hence why Airfoil was marketed and sold so well until now.

    You said your mac is a late 2007 macbook. IIRC, any Mac older than a 2008 model has issues running some 64bit-only applications (Banana Tunes is a 64bit-only application in its current iteration).

    So that may mean that your computer may not be able to BananaTunes very well or at all. If so, you might have to wait for a version that includes 32bit support or wait for it to be implemented into BananaTV.

    ADDENDUM: Also, I know there have been others who worked on the original package (link here) for compatibility with OS X. That you could compile that and use for yourself. It's somewhat more complicated though, as it uses terminal and daemons.

    Great App and thanks to Erica for getting it out there as I was failing to get ShairPort compiled.

    I am seeing an issue that I'd like to better understand though.
    BananaTunes runs fine and I'm able to stream to my iMac but when I turn on my amp that's connected via HDMI (Audio and Video) the audio stream doesn't come out of the speakers.

    When I turn off the Amp it resumes again on the iMac.

    This is a pri0 scenario for me as my iMac is the center of my media setup (projector and speakers in another room) and I've been wanting to wander around and stream pandora to the iMac and have it pumped around the house.

    Appreciate any advice on this. The Amp is an Onkyo TX-SR608

    Thanks
    Adam.

    Aww seems iTunes to iTunes support is non existant, interestingly enough it is supported by airfoil as an airplay target speaker.

    EDIT: Airfoil stops using the speaker after a few minutes.

    Thanks for this great app Erica!
