I want to see movies that are on my Mac on the screen connected to my PS3 or Xbox 360



Supposedly works with XBox 360 as well. Supports streaming and transcoding.


Nullriver Software:

Medialink - PS3

Connect360 - Xbox360

  • I have used Connect360 for the last few years. Very solid and works nice, but I would recommend Rivet above it I think. – jmlumpkin Oct 20 '10 at 15:45

I use MediaLink, which lets you use your Mac as a server which the PS3 can connect to for music, pictures, and movies. It seems to work well enough; my only problem is that I don't like the PS3's interface for browsing through large collections of things. For example, when sharing my entire iTunes library, I'm just about restricted to playlists or random shuffle -- pulling a particular artist/album/song out of thousands is just a pain. For movies, it's worked just fine for me.


I use Rivet for streaming to my PS3. It's completely painless to set up, while I've had trouble with another solution in the past (unfortunately I can't remember the name of that one).

I am using Vuze for that: http://www.vuze.com/features/device Not sure if there are any alternatives for OSX.
