Is it normal for this kind of app to use 90MB of RAM and 110MB of Virtual RAM? That is more than Dock, Finder and Dropbox.

Interesting, lupinglade is listed here as the developer yet he/she is able to submit reviews (5 star no less) for MediaLink, another Nullriver product. Also, the most recent 2 (5 star) reviews for Connect 360 both have very similar names and according to their review histories have only "reviewed" Connect360 and MediaLink (both Nullriver products) And 3 5 star reviews for both nullriver products all with nothing written save for perfect 5-star ratings all posted on December 6th? Isn't there a developer blacklist for fake reviews to drum up the star rating? I took a look at this version and it's as cumbersome as the previous version. I'm still trying to find what's different. FYI, playback does what Media Link and Connect 360 do for less than the price of 1 Nullriver product.

Their first update in years and all it does is fix a bug with another one of THEIR OWN PRODUCTS? Playback lets you stream to PS3 and Xbox without buying two programs. Playback lets you repackage MKV's to play. Playback does so many more things than this POS program and it's cheaper. Save from relaunching this product using Playback's source code and giving me money, there is no update that would make Connect360 (or media link) worth switching back to.

Has Nullriver abandon the future development of this 'preference pan' app? I switched to Playback. Nullriver has a nice lil app here. I was suckered into purchasing this one fro ma friend. Go with Playback if you want the best out there for streaming content to your Xbox 360. I's been to years since Nullriver did anything on this. They shouldn't be taking people's money if they are gonna sell a two year old app.

Playback blows this out of the water. It works with xbox and ps3, and actually integrates the faces technology from iphoto, works without issues with multiple connected and wi-fi drives and recognizes more formats. And it's 25% cheaper. As I said earlier in one of my previous posts, I was once a happy connect 360 customer. 2+ years of no development? FAIL Anyone want a connect360 license?

Fantastic little program, incredibly easy to use. Just set up your XBox network and install the software on your mac. Only issue I can see is I'm not sure it is seeing my modified images. I spent weeks trying to get my iphone G to work with various cables and my Samsung TV. I even bought the MAC AV component. Using this software with the Xbox made it much easier.

A once happy customer, I'm now thoroughly disgusted by Nullriver's lack of support for this program. This program has been out for how long now? And still doesn't work with folders? Absolutely ridiculous. This program needs a massive update, and fast. $20 for a mediocre program that does a half assed job might be OK for an early release when no one else offers an alternative, but when it's years later and the program has undergone no significant development, something's very wrong.

STILL no support for folders in folders or multiple locations? I made the plunge for Connect360 right before Rivet was released and since then have been a bit unsatisfied with my purchase. Yes, it still plays the files but the unorganization of it all is killing me (Not to mention that the vast majority of my movies are stored on an external hard drive). Nullriver took about 3 months to pump out another version and it is barely an upgrade, just a few tweaks. If they can't keep up with Rivet I'll have to switch but hopefully it won't come to that.

Still no support for folders within folders. Unbelievable. Why would I want my music and movie library scanned at a maximum of every two hours? How often do you think we add movies/music to our libraries. Off or manual rescan is needed.

I want to play back movies form an external dedicated hard drive. Connect360 does not seem to allow this, it will only play back movies that are stored on the internal drive of my iMac. Is there a way to play back movies from an external drive, or am I out of luck on this one. BTW, I have emailed this question to the developer about half a dozen times. They do not seem to be all to interested to respond and support their software, since I have not received a response from them.

ok, i couldnt figure it out for the life of me and someone's complaint was my answer. after sifting through complaints regarding the iphoto problem - if your iphoto library is stored on another disk (external), connect 360 will not find it - i found the fix. create an alias and put it in the pictures folder on your local disk. remove the "alias"tag at the end of it so it is just called "iPhoto Library" and BAM, connect 360 starts indexing. maybe most of you knew that but i saw that a couple people were having this issues and google-ing it got me no-where so this is me putting in my google contribution to answer some frustrated users!

This program has a lot of potential, but there is next to ZERO documentation/support for this thing. Sure, you can email the dev, who is darn responsive, but there are little, annoying issues that can creep up, and all you can really do is email the dev. They have a FAQ, but it's hi-and-miss. For sure, a user-supported forum is needed. But at the very least they need a manual of some sort.

I bought this software a few months ago, and I've had an absolute blast using it. It works well, is easy to set up, and makes my Xbox 360 useful as a media-streamer in ways I wasn't able to access before. Kudos! One small caveat, though: While music and photo streaming work very smoothly from my iMac G4 1.25gHz machine (my main media server), streaming video is choppy at best. However, streaming video from my 17" MacBook Pro 2.33gHz is silky-smooth.

Spoke too soon. Do you think it's possible to add support for folders within folders? That is for folders to retain their position within folders instead of every folder appearing at the top level. Also, do you think you can add a manual option to "Rescan Movies folder every:..." Thanks.

Looks good, but I have some movies in my Movies folder, and some on another drive. There's a symlink to their folder in ~/Movies, so Front Row can see them, but Connect360 won't follow the symlink and says I only have four movies :( Any chance of Connect360 handling symlinks? My iPhoto library is also on another disk: Connect360 doesn't find it AT ALL, and doesn't have an option for me to say where it is. Mind you, the library I'd *really* want to access is the Aperture library. Hopefully this will be supported soon...

Some of you guys might be experiencing the problem I first encountered. For Movies, you have to go into the Movie section, the change the source of the hard disk to read (which you can then select your computer). With this selected you can either use the iTunes folder (where it can only detect MP4) or your Movie folder in your Home folder of your computer. Once you select it, copy some movies you want to watch in this folder and then on your xbox, go back to the main menu and back into the Movie section to refresh.. and presto! The movies on your computer will be listed on your xBox. If you have any problems, please reply here so I can try to help anyone stuck. I haven't worked out how to use my external hard drive for movies, I will try to make alias' in my movie folder and see if it can play off that. Hope this helps.

Easy download, easy install. Pleae note, that this program does not install as an application, but as an item under "Other" in "System Preferences". Don't know how to uninstall this program, which I want to do, becasue it does not work properly, and I can't seem to be able to make it work. I can see and play all my music. I can see all my photos, but I cannot play my slide shows correctly. For instance, Connect360 tells me that I have 3500 photos in a slide show that only has 19 photos. And in the slide shows that it does display correctly, it plays the photos in the wrong order, because it rearranges the order alphabetically, which is not the order of my photos in the slide show. This cannot changed. My XBox, does not see any of my over 80 movies, even though they are set up to be shared from my movie folder. So now I have to figure out how to remove this program, since there is no manual not any useful instructions on the nullriver website. I only rate this program a 1 because 0 is not an available choice.

I just thought I would post to clear a few things up. Connect360 is really good! I have been using it since the very first version, and each version, combined with each xbox update, gets better and better. Its a program that some of my itunes using pc friends wish they had. Also, my itunes music collection is on an external drive, and works fine. Im not sure it lies it though if you library file is on an external drive. I just kept it in my home folder and changed the itunes preffs to keep my content in a folder on the external drive. Yes the support isnt the best, and there could be some extra features like folder support and video artwork (new in fall update) but I dont mind about this. I payed only a few pounds over a year ago and I keep getting a better program with extra features.

I regret this purchase! Connect 360 worked fine when I had all my music on my internal HDD, but once I moved it to an external USB2 drive the app could no recognize my music. When I asked support about the issue they sent me a poorly written example of how to fix the issue (which I followed as well as I could) but it still did not work). I decide to ask for help again, or suggest for them to fix this error in an update… It's been several weeks now and I still have not received a response. half functional app, zero functional support.

I guess I'm the 1-out-of-100 people who can't get this program to work! Both my computer and my 360 are going through a Linksys Cable/DSL router w/ 4 port switch. And they both connect to the internets just fine. But I can't seem to get them to "see" each other. I have all my firewalls off on my mac, and don't have any weird programs that could block communication. I have spent some time on the phone w/ Linksys (which is where my gut tells me the problem is), but the only thing they've had me do was "enable DMZ" and then change my MTU packet size from 1500 to 1400. both of which didn't work. I've emailed NullRiver and have gotten pretty spotty help. They're trying... I guess. But it's just $25 for them! I really do think they should host a forum on their site. Because there's really nowhere to get help if you're the lonely 1 out of 100 who it doesn't "magically" work for. Help?

Works like a wheel apart from a few things I'm having trouble with. 1. Regardless of being ticked in iTunes all movies are showing up. 2. Playing movies from iTunes doesn't increase their playcount. 3. If the computer goes to sleep the XBox will lose the connection and never be able to re-establish. Only solution is to connect to another computer and re-select the Connect 360 machine. Other than that this application is worth every cent. BRILLIANT!

I've recently downloaded the latest trial version of Connect360 and it all works well apart from the one glitch. When I try to look at photos all I get is a black square with a grey cross where the photo should be. On my Mac Connect360 says that it is awaiting Xbox360 connection, however, I can still play songs from the Mac. I've severed the connection from the Xbox and re-established it. Any ideas as it's becoming a pain and I can't fix it!

Demo worked alright, though I'd have to restart the program from time to time in order for my 360 to recognize it. Problems came when I tried to register. 2 weeks and numerous emails after sending my Paypal payment and I still haven't got a registration number. In fact it's been 5 days since they've even responded to an email! First time I've been burned buying shareware. I guess there's a first time for everything.

What are people using to convert video to WMV? I tried VisualHub and although the WMV plays on my Mac, Connect360 doesnt detect it. The only videos I've been able to play have been downloaded from the net. Thanks.

I do not believe you can connect the xbox 360 directly to your iBook unless you use a crossover cable. You would be better off connecting your xbox 360 to a router and the mac to a router and it should find it if you either turned the Mac OS X firewall off or opened the ports requested by connect360. With this setup, I have had no problem. If any further problem, please post. RD

This may help someone else. My Connect360 wasnt detecting any wmv movies either until I opened the preferences for Flip4mac, clicked Movie and selected all 4 options. Then i went back to Connect360 and stop/started the sharing. Then it went through the discovery stage and found the movies.

Brilliant. Does exactly what it says on the tin - Video, Audio & Photo sharing. In only two ways could it be better: 1. Transcoding of video on-the-fly to wmv so that mov and avi's can be viewed on the xbox. (Unless MS allow playback of these, which I doubt is gonna happen). 2. Last.fm client so that songs played on Xbox 360 appear on my last.fm profile. Other than that, I have no complaints. Very easy to use, and i love the fact that I can play iTunes playlists on my 360.

The product seems to work well, but after paying for it two days ago (via instant PayPal transfer) I still haven't received the registration code, which was supposed to be sent within minutes. I sent the developer email and opened a PayPal dispute and the developer hasn't responded to either one. Beyond paying, what does one have to do to get the registration code???

So with one xbox, I can view videos, but with the other xbox, it will only see the pictures and music, but not the videos being shared. I can't figure out why it would refuse to see the mac the same way the other xbox can. Anyone else having problems?

I recently bought my Xbox 360 and was looking for a way to share the music on my Mac with it. I found Connect360 and tried it out. Installation was snap! It automatically opened the right ports up in my firewall. It immediately found my Xbox and enabled sharing for my music, movies and pictures. It literally took about one minute from download to sharing music with my Xbox. The demo limits you to 100 songs and 100 photos, which is good enough to try it out. I've already bought a license for it and now I can play all my music. Well, not ALL my music. I can't play music I bought on iTMS without converting them all to MP3. Not a huge deal really. Overall, if you've got a Mac and an Xbox 360, this is an excellent way to link them up.

If Connect360 doesn't see your WMV files, make sure you have installed the Flip4Mac WMV Quicktime Components from http://www.flip4mac.com/

I am having the same problem with the videos and they all worked on USB flash drive. The app wont even show that they are picked up. I wonder if it is finding the folder at all. This is such a great app I would love the videos to work. Being able to transcode other quicktime files would be a great addition.

Doesn't seem to recognise an iPhoto library if it's not called "iPhoto Library" and sitting in your Pictures folder. It's very possible to use multiple iPhoto libraries and to call them whatever you want (hold option when starting iPhoto) so this makes the product a bit useless for me. iTunes support seems to work fine; I'll contact the developer.

The program works great on all the AACs I encoded with iTunes, but for some reason the DRM-less AACs I've downloaded from allofmp3.com won't work. They appear in the list of songs on the Xbox, but then when I try to play them a little "No" symbol appears next to them. If they play in iTunes, I don't know why they wouldn't play with Connect360. Also, the program seems to freeze if I change anything in my iTunes library. If I add a song to iTunes, it freezes, and I have to force quit and restart it.

It took me a while to fix what seems to be a very rarely experienced network problem (see 2 posts previous), but I am very happy to say I now have it fixed. The developer was very quick in responding to my support emails, and kept his patience throughout. FYI, I had to rebuild my wireless network using some old Airport Express's I had lying around, and when that didn't work, hardware reset everything, and start again from scratch. Somewhere along the way the problem was ironed out, and I joined the thousands of users enjoying instant and painless streaming of music an photos twixt Mac and 360. Once I had it running I have to say I was blown away by it. It is so easy and so simple, but somehow thrilling to be able to play any of my 15gb of music on my 360 without having to re-encode any CDs again... and viewing my photo albums on my 32" HDTV is a stunning feast for the eyes that I did not expect to find particularly interesting at all, but must admit can't stop playing with. As soon as it was working I was so impressed I purchased right away. A paltry $10 really is a bargain for such beautifully written, genuinely useful, user-friendly and well supported software. So don't worry about these initial problems I had, it seems I had something set up wrong. Everyone else I know or have communicated with concerning this software had instant joy with it. I'd highly recommend this to anyone with a 360 -you won't believe how great it is.

I don't know about Ozz's experience, but I have to say that my own was flawless. Click a button and there is all was! very impressive - this is 50% of my wishlist out of the way - just need video and then I won't have to fork out on some Elgato solution. I'd pay big money for this feature mr developer, but sadly I don't know how impossible it would be. As far as the program stands - thankyou so much! I've tried alternative methods that were as complicated as the were useless. This was a breeze.

I have been trying to use this software for 2 days now without any progress. The software appears to be working correctly on the Mac end, i.e Connect360 shows 3 green ticks just like the screenshot, but my 360 simply will not connect. It takes about 5 minutes to even see my Mac as an option, and then tries to connect but fails saying there may be a firewall blocking the connection. There is no firewall. This is really really frustrating. I emailed the developer who replied quickly but his solution did not work, and he hasn't replied to my follow-up emails. I really hope I can get this sorted out soon, it seems to work instantly for everyone else, and I am getting extremely stressed and infuriated with it.

Well after initially hearing of this application I had beamed with joy! Downloaded it and got it running without a single hitch within about 10 minutes. This is exactly the type of developers the Apple community needs; they see a market for something that is well needed and act upon it! for anyone with a Mac and 360 wishing to utilize the 360's keen neat media sharing functions here is your answer! Just hopefully the devs will keep up with updates, which they have so far, and features. As of right now I'd really like to see them build in a method for sharing movies of any format :)

The developer is awesome, this is fact. However, we're trying to pin down a problem where I can see the songs and photos on my Xbxo, but the photos are represented by an "X" and all songs have a stop sign next to them and will not play on the xbox. IF anyone knows why this is going on, please help us out. I am not part of the developer's team, or beta team, just trying to get this great app to work. Any help is appreciated!

Honestly there is not a lot to say about this app other than it works. And in the last two days it went from missing stuff to having everything people were requesting. This is better and easier to setup than MS Windows Media Connect software. I have been dealing with Nullriver for almost a year now and these guys are great. Connect 360 Rox the Box.

If you were really trying to make a difference you would have contacted the company. Instead you're just mouthing off or complaining and we don't care. I will not be replyng to anymore of your comments.

Seems like a neat piece of software, but disappointingly Nullriver keeps on using free software without following the respective license agreements. Where is credit given to the FFmpeg group? Where is that copy of the LGPL you're supposed to include? Where is credit given to the developer of the EDCommon framework? For shame Nullriver...
