"I just found two small apps for OS X that seem to handle what I am looking for, though they aren't free:

Rivet - exposed your iTunes, iPhoto, etc to an XBox360 and PS3
Connect360 - exposes your iTunes, iPhoto, etc to an XBox360.

So far Rivet is working so well out of the box that I'm considering plunking down the $18 for it."

"I tried both Rivet and Connect360. Rivet was better than Connect360 as it allowed videos to be organised in subdirectories, however it is now a discontinued product.

Occasionally my Xbox was unable to connect to my Macbook running either Connect360 or Rivet, so I tried PS3 Media Server. Despite the deceptive name it works very well for streaming videos from OSX to Xbox360.I've had no problems with it after several months of use."
