"Yazsoft on Thursday announced the release of Playback 1.0, an "Extreme Media Server" for Mac OS X. It costs $15."
I have been using a similar product, Nullriver's Connect 360, to connect my Xbox 360 to my iTunes library for a couple years now and it works pretty well. But it is always good to have options, and this new one by Yazsoft is $5.00 US cheaper than the Nullriver program. This program by Yazsoft also works with the Playstation 3. The other advantage I noticed with Yazsoft's Playback 1.0 is that it also works with Aperture, where the Connect 360 only works with iPhoto. I may give this a try since Yazsoft offers 7 day free trial just to see which one I like better, but I've been pretty happy with Connect 360 so I may not tempt fate. If I had a Playstation 3 I certainly would consider it.
