Connect360 Brings Macs & Xboxes Together
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of Nullriver Software's Connect360, a software application which allows users to connect their Mac to an XBox 360 to stream videos, music, and photos to the console. The Game Room gave Connect360 a score of 4.5 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

All of the music, video, and photos you’re sharing on your Mac are streamed to the Xbox 360, similar to the way a guest Mac or PC works with the Apple TV. So none of your Xbox 360’s hard disk space is wasted storing these files. That means you’ll need a live connection to your Mac in order to use them, obviously—if the Mac goes to sleep or is shut down, you won’t have any luck playing your content.

Connect360 works with quite a few different audio and video formats (including WMV if you have Flip4Mac installed), but content encrypted with FairPlay Digital Rights Management (DRM) software is strictly verboten. For that, you’ll need an Apple TV. Attempting to play a protected audio or video track will pop up a message on the Xbox 360 that that file format isn’t supported.
Check out the rest of the review at the link below.
