Choose a small video to test for you first video, as encoding and conversion times can be lengthy if you choose a full movie. Try downloading a trailer for a movie in your favorite format that the Xbox 360 can't read. Like: AVI, and a lot of other weird formats.

Before you start configuring, open up Terminal (in Applications -> Utilities) and type "ifconfig en0" (zero, not a capital-o). You're looking for the bit that says "inet xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx". In my case, the number I get here is 192.168.2.1 Second, note down the IP address of your wireless router, which in my case is 192.168.0.1
On your Mac
On your Xbox 360
First, on your Mac, open up your new file in VLC and in QuickTime. Make sure it can play in both (Not necessarily at the same time). If you have done that, now it is time to move to your 360. Follow these instructions:
Turn on your Xbox 360
Navigate over to the "Media Tab", and select the "Videos" option.
Note: Since the Xbox 360 Dashboard update of about 6 months ago, once you click on"Videos" it will just show you all of the videos on your Xbox 360 hard drive. So presses "X" to change the current source. Then browse down to your Apple / Mac computer. Mine is an iMac.
Click on the "Movies Folder". That is where you should have saved the file there earlier.
Now browse through your video files and select your sweet, newly converted video file, and play it!
All the operations is just like pie. So you can watch any your favorite video on your Xbox 36o from your Mac easily Now. Watch and Enjoy it!
