Rivet 2.2 adds video thumbnails, more iPhoto support

updated 11:30 am EDT, Wed July 8, 2009

Rivet 2.2 update

Cynical Peak has posted the v2.2 update for Rivet, its media sharing utility. Users can stream music, photos and photos from a Mac to a LAN-connected Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, thereby bypassing the need for an extra set-top. Content is read from Aperture, iTunes and iPhoto libraries, as well as custom folders in the case of video.

New to the v2.2 update is support for video thumbnails, which appear next to files on a console, while relying on the QuickLook feature of Mac OS X Leopard. Videos can similarly be associated with date and duration metadata. Album art can now be displayed in the case of music, but only on a PS3.

iPhoto compatibility has been expanded to support Events, creating a more convenient organization for remotely browsing photos. Maintenance changes include faster loading of libraries and photo thumbnails, plus a variety of bugfixes, such as the proper listing of libraries containing both photos and video. Rivet requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later, and costs $19.

    Seems like the Rivet folks are trying to play catch-up to a recently released (and still much better) competing app; Playback developed by the same people who give us Speed Download, the best download manager for Mac OS X. Sorry Rivet, you had your chance and you blew it.
