what is it? free would be nice.
I use connect360, I have been using it for quite a while it is not free but works very well. You can get it on app store $19.99. It works the best of all the programs I have tried. I dont even remember the other ones I have tried because they didn't work well.
I use PlayBack. I highly doubt you'll find a free program that'll do the same as connect360 or Playback.
ps3mediaserver is a fantastic free option.
Don't be fooled by the name of the program, it works just as well on the 360 as the PS3.
I second this option... free and works GREAT!
Excellent bit of a kit as it won't just allow you to stream, but also does live transcoding of unsupported file formats so you don't have to bother converting everything!
Also it will stream to any DLNA device - other laptop, TV, etc. etc. etc., and its free!
Chalk up another one for the PS3 Media Server, I have used it for a couple of years now on both my PS3 and Xbox without problem.
I have managed to get my Mac to see my Xbox however I cannot get the Xbox to view the Mac? Any suggestions?
I'm also struggling with this. I've tried a variety of different programs and none of them are showing up on 360's video player page.
I used to use Connect360 and it worked pretty well but honestly...
An AppleTV is what I use now and it's a billion times better.
I also used Connect360 but found the AirPlay option to be so much better. Mostly because I have a nice point and click interface on my laptop rather than a controller joystick navigated clunky process on the 360 itself.
I use PS3 Media Server for both my PS3 and XBOX. Works great on both. I didn't even have to change any settings when I first tried it with the 360.
Free App to stream to Mac
Try Rivet. It's a discontinued app from the little app factory. It's free and it works. Here's the link
Just run the app and configure it to the proper directories with your movies. Then on your xBox, go to Video Player and select your laptop as the source and you should be able to navigate to the folders you specified with your movies.
Twonky Media server works good for me. They also have app for iOS devices so you can stream to your mobile and from it (sorta like AirPlay). However, I've only used it to stream from my iMac (and Mini) to my two XBOX360s. I got it free with somethign (don't remember) and then I noticed my new Network Storage drive (NAS) has Twonky Media server pre-loaded to stream directly from my 3TB external drive to my XBOX, iOS devices, etc
Try XBMC Media Server it's free. I use DLNA controller on my iPhone to go through XBMC content and send it to XBox360
You can try XBMC as a server.
Rivet works well and is now free - used it for some time now.
PS3 Media Server Works
I found this thread, downloaded PS3MS, installed it, and 10mins after my search began I'm streaming from my Xbox. Done. No more transferring shows to my thumb drive!
If using the ps3 media server will only xbox supported file types work ?
I've just tried Ps3 media server and it does work, however on some files it suffers from really bad audio sync problems.
A million and one settings to choose from - gonna take me a while to tick / untick them all
Free and works!
I know this is an old thread but I thought it would be good for anyone accessing this thread to know that if you want something that works and is FREE, download Vuze.
Now, I know what you are thinking, Vuze is a bit torrent client... True, but that not all it does. It also allows you to stream content (i.e. movies/music...) from your mac to your xbox.

Vuze worked for me
I downloaded Connect360. It sucked!
I downloaded PS3MediaServer. It sucked!
I downloaded Vuze. Awesome!
It's Free and Simple. (like your mom)
