For PS3 users, the open-source, free PS3 Media Server is perfectly adequate.

Brilliant app, much better than Connect360.

@nhesson : uhm… what do I care about "eye candy" in an application like this? The only thing it should do is to sit nicely and quietly in the background and stream my media to my 360. Both Rivet & Connect360 do this.

But: Rivet's feature to repliacte the folder structure whereas Connect360 doesn't (until today; of course it MIGHT be updated someday to do so as well) is a much more important to me than "eye candy" (I like Rivet's interface and appearance as a menu dock item anyway)

It's all about priorities. So until Connect360 gets an update to support folder structures I'd prefer Rivet anytime.

That was some impressive, hassle-free buying. The demo worked since second 1, then the survey discount and the one-step transaction. I've bought a handful of apps but I had never seen everything work so well.

Rivet was just announced on April 16th, 2008.

I had bought Connect360 earlier, but this already beats it hands down. Rivet has a couple of essential features Connect360 is missing, like replication of the folder structures on your Mac, automatic media updating and most important of all you can choose multiple source folders for your media.
