Streaming video from a Mac to an Xbox 360
December 3, 2007 4:28 PM   Subscribe

I was reading the December 2007 Video Playback FAQ about the new video options that are going to be incorporated in tomorrow's Xbox 360 dashboard update. And I was surprised to see question #28: "How can I stream content from my Mac?". They imply that it's possible, but they don't mention any 3rd party solutions. What Mac software can I use for this?

QuickTime Broadcaster? It streams MPEG-4 H.264.

Best answer: Connect360

It will probably need an update to support the update.

A google for "360 stream content mac" would have found the same thing.

Response by poster: Thanks mphule, that looks like it's exactly what I was looking for.

Heh, that's pretty funny - if you do the google search with the terms you suggested, this thread shows up as result #3 - 1 ahead of the Connect360 link you provided.

Does anyone happen to know if Connect360 (which I love, BTW) will automatically start broadcasting my .avi files?

I applied the dashboard update this morning and it did not start broadcasting AVI files. I already sent an email support request to Nullriver last week asking when they plan on updating Connect360 to support these file types, which is an email I have a feeling they've been swamped with. Hopefully rather than taking the time to reply they'll just release a program update.

NullRiver has updated Connect360 to supposedly enable .avi streaming.

Has anyone had success with it? My XBox sees the files but won't play any of them. In fact, it seems like it's actually playing fewer of the files than before.
