I have a macbook pro, it was given to me by my work and I use it for work I do at home and some other things around the house. I have videos and music on my laptop that I would love to watch on my TV or listen to over my stereo, but I’m not getting an Apple TV, why? I don’t need it. What I do have is an XBox and I want it to do everything, is that asking so much?
So here is the deal, I have an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm that I wanted to watch tonight, so the hunt was on. How many crazy hacks do I have to do to watch this video, how much time do I need to spend in my terminal to make this work.
The answer? None. Nada. Zilch. I found the Connect 360 by Nullriver. I downloaded it, I installed it (it works itself into your preference pane), I opened my xbox, went to my media and to my surprise, my macbook was listed. Now I expected it to be a pain. I clicked my TV Shows folder, clicked my Curb video and boom. Playing. I’m now happily watching my video and barely had to do anything.
