Playback allows you to share your media with any Playstation 3, Xbox 360, or other UPnP compatible device. It automatically integrates with iTunes, iPhoto, Aperture, Adobe Lightroom 2 & 3, Photobooth, EyeTV, and more. You can share all content from these applications or choose specific playlists and albums. Playback can also share media stored in folders or even make entire disks available to your Playstation 3 or Xbox 360. By default, Playback will share almost any content on your system. No configuration required. If you prefer to tinker, you'll appreciate Playback's built-in access control list (ACL) and bandwidth throttling. The ACL allows you to control which devices have access to your media. Bandwidth throttling limits the transfer rate from your computer to your UPnP device so others on your network can still surf the web and check their email. Of course, if speed is your thing, we've got that too. Playback was engineered for extreme speed. Your media is served via nginx. Nginx is known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption. Nginx powers several high-visibility sites, such as WordPress, Hulu, Github, Ohloh, SourceForge and TorrentReactor. Other features include Growl notifications, on-screen thumbnails powered by QuickLook.

Version: Playback 1.8.12
Up and working in a minute Smart access to mac files via the Xbox, included mac organizational folders Video streams fine even over old wifi set up
haven't found any yet
Just got my son and xbox 360 for Christmas and was upset to find out you can't copy video, photos or images to the xbox's hard drive. Only solution for playing back many family-related images and video was to find a streaming solution. Tried Window Media Center but most of my files are on my mac, and I wanted to stream directly from the mac. Did research and bought this program. It's fantastic. Installed and immediately up and running on my iMac without any tweaked needed. Xbox immediately recognized my mac and I was streaming photos, my video collection and my iTunes music. Even better, the software retains Apple "categories" like Albums, Artists, Genre, etc for itunes and "Events" in iPhoto. So Playback is iLife friendly. Couldnnt have asked for an easier or better implemented software. made MY Christmas!
