Rivet is a shareware application for Mac OS X 10.5, developed by Cynical Peak Software. It was first released on April 12, 2008. The Little App Factory purchased Rivet in 2010 for an undisclosed sum.

The application allows Mac OS X users to stream their iTunes music library, iPhoto photo library, and movies to their Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, similar to Windows Media Connect on Windows.

The software competes with Nullriver's Connect360, and likewise either directly feeds or transcodes AAC, MP3, WMA, H.262, DIVX, AVI, WMV, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, RAW, TIFF, PSD, PDF files and more.
