    Summary

    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!
