Rivet is now Free and works like a charm for streaming to PS3. Playback has a nice interface, and can convert MKVs to mp4, but if you already have your files in the right format and want to stream to a PS3, you only need select the folder where you are storing them and start Rivet. They'll show up on the PS3 and all is well.

According to the developer's news page this application is no longer in development. Rather disappointing considering I really like it.

And in addition the last version is actually 2.8.0 and downloadable at the link above.


Thanks for pointing this out. I've updated our listing to reflect 2.8.0 as the last version, and noted that development has seized.

FYI to all AirPort Extreme & Time Capsule Users, this app no longer works with the Apple hardware. When Apple upgraded the firmware on the AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule it not long functions. You will have to downgrade your firmware to 7.3.2. Sadly the comments from TLAF just point the finger at Apple, with no other solutions.

I cant ever watch a whole movie or series episode without xbox360 throwing an error saying format is not supported, then i click resume and it starts playing again. Normally on a 40min episode it happens twice.

This is a crappy update considering what Playback/Medialink is doing...

I've used Connect360, Rivet, and Playback, and Playback is, without question, far superior to any of the other offerings. You must be getting downranked by the developer.

Loved Rivet, paid for it and it worked a treat with my router setup. Now I'm trying to get Rivet to work with my Xbox via sharing my Mac's internet with it. No dice. According to the Rivet forums this isn't possible with Rivet. But it is with Connect 360. Wasted $20. Well, I did use Rivet for a month or so, so not totally wasted, but if you want to share your Mac's internet with your Xbox you'll want Connect 360, not Rivet.

Sorry but Connect360 is terrible. It hasn't been updated in years. I trashed it for playback.
