It’s already been established that the top three video game consoles can do a lot more than just play games. The PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii can all act as media hubs and extenders to stream videos, music and photos stored on your Mac.
Streaming content isn’t all that new, but it’s popularity and adoption amongst a wider range of consumers is becoming noticeable. Whether it’s streaming music from the Web or listening to your iTunes playlists remotely, the method of delivering the stuff you want is getting easier to grasp. The best part is that you don’t need much more than some neat software, a home network and, naturally, content you want to enjoy.
What you need to make sure of before you initiate all this is that your game console is connected to your home network, through Ethernet or Wi-Fi. Once the Mac and the console are on the same network, the rest should be easy.
