Airfoil Play Sound?

I’ve been using the Airfoil plugin and an Airplay AE for my announcements which has worked surprisingly well.
Hoping there might be a way to also send sounds to the AE as well, possibly using the Play Sound app?

Also I’m not seeing any instance in Indigo of my Airfoil 4.8.14 running on the same server.
I see in the plugin doc that it should be Airfoil V5 but the version I have says it’s up to date.
I’m running 10.8.

Guessing if I could get the plugin working I could switch the source in Airfoil to the system audio
to play a sound file and back to Indigo for announcements?

Appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Carl

That's how I do it. My Airfoil runs on my Indigo server and I can use the built in speak methods to get my house talking to me and announcing things.

I had to upgrade from OS X 10.8 to 10.9 in order to get the new version of Airfoil (V5) and the at the time, new Indigo Airfoil Pro to run.
Of course the OS upgrade had issues with my Gen 2 Drobo's connected via Firewire hanging 10.9 on boot and decided to go to 10.10, to see if that fixed it.. it didn't, connecting Drobo's USB fixed it.. :x .

The Airfoil 5 upgrade and Airfoil pro plugin was what forced me to upgrade the OS or I would still be running 10.8 too!

As it says in the Airfoil Pro plugin docs, it requires Airfoil 5.

You can try using the old Airfoil plugin that we shipped with Indigo 5/6 - it worked with Airfoil 4 but it hasn't been tested with Indigo 7 so YMMV.

Thanks Jay. No joy with the older Airfoil plugin...looks like 10.9 it is.
