Do NOT install DIVX for Mac. The new updates install malware on your computer which set ALL of your browsers - Chrome, Firefox, Safari - to use a search service called 'conduit' which redirects, of course, to Bing. It does NOT simply allow you to re-set up your home pages and search engines. It has a background process which again TAKES OVER YOUR BROWSER SETTINGS even after you have restored them! Instead of installing this software (which is trying to stop you from using Google), you should remove Bing from your search engines and stop using all Microsoft products. Obviously, no one redirects people to Bing without getting paid for it. You'll spent quite a while removing this nasty browser hijacker and you'll regret this download!

Edit: It appears that after your remove the 'Conduit' home page and engine, the 2nd stage software responsible for re-setting the search and default pages to 'Conduit' is a Chrome extension. So, for Safari and Firefox, a single removal of the offending search pages and 'Conduit' search engine is enough. For Chrome, you have to additionally remove the conduit extension. BE WARNED: The conduit extension has access to all of your cookies and data on every site, and could easily send all of that data to a 3rd party. It's better to just not download this. Obviously, I've also uninstalled all DIVX plugins because they can no longer be trusted.

All this app does is pop a dialog that says "Line Busy". If it simply doesn't work with Airport Express, it should be in the first paragraph of the description, because that will be a very common audio target.
