Airport‘DVD Jon’ has cracked the encryption used to send audio streams to Apple’s Airport Express wireless dongle thingy. This means that apps can be written to stream any type of audio to the Airport.

He’s also released the source code to a small Windows command-line tool he calls JustePort. In essence his crack opens the door for other applications to broadcast music to your hi-fi over a home WLAN network using Express, rather than just iTunes 4.6. For users on Linux machines, or with WMA or OGG format files, this could be a boon, as iTunes supports neither format out of the box.

Apple is unlikely to look upon it so charitably.
