Cynical Peak Software has released Rivet 1.1, an update to its software that lets Mac users stream video, music and photos from their Mac to an Xbox 360 on the same network. A free update for registered users, Rivet 1.1 costs $18.95.
New in the 1.1 release is improved support for video podcasts and TV shows in iTunes, now sorted into subfolders based on show and season. Automatic media updating isn’t as CPU-intensive, compiliation albums now show up as one album, and transcoded pictures are now “friendlier to your hard drive.” Other changes have been made, too.
Rivet requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later, iTunes for music sharing, a networked Xbox 360 and 2.7MB hard disk space.
