Rivet 1.1 Now Available

RivetRivet, Cynical Peak's software for sharing movies, music, and photos from your Mac to your Xbox 360, will see a 1.1 release tomorrow that fixes quite a few things and improves several others.

  • Added better support for video podcasts and TV Shows in iTunes. They will now be sorted into subfolders based on the show and season.
  • Fixed memory leaks.
  • Automatic media updating is now friendlier on your CPU.
  • Compilation albums will now show up as one album and not a separate one for each artist.
  • Transcoded pictures are now much friendlier to your hard drive.
  • Changed the machine's IP discovery to work better with virtual machines and system preferences.
  • Fixed the issue where iTunes movies would not be displayed if the share folders option was off.
  • Fixed the red icon issue for some scenarios.
  • Fixed displaying photos from a self manages iPhoto library.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur while browsing photos.
  • Fixed an issue that causes the broken pipe crash.
  • Fixed an issue that caused a crash on launch if the Mac's name was not returned from the system.

The networking fix alone saw about eight separate revisions, so grab this update from the in-app updater or, if you've not purchased yet, give the demo a try.

  1. Cool, I'll finally get to check out this app. I just bought an Xbox 360 from a friend, and I just bought a Sharp LC-52D64U (52" LCD HDTV). Fun!

  2. Finally got that Xbox 360 on Saturday and got to play with Rivet. Very nice app. Now I need to re-rip all of my DVDs in higher quality.

    But, Rivet+360 gives me what I always wanted - a movie jukebox, without needing to keep a pile of DVDs in my living room.
