SBWM In Use, Continued

The Wireless Music Media Server application is how your computer communicates with the Receiver, and makes it possible for the SBWM to access your computer's digital music collection. While the paradigm is the same as the Squeezebox's, Creative's applications have a decidedly Windows orientation. So if you aren't running Windows, you can't use any of the other Creative management applications, which include:

  • Wireless Music Console - slick looking and has a more polished feel than the Squeezebox's browser-based interface (which must refresh constantly, often interrupting your song browsing zen).

  • Creative MediaSource - used for playing, creating, organizing and transferring digital music. MediaSource allows for multiple PC Music Libraries, so when sharing the same computer, multiple users can each have their own personal music library - although only one music library can be active at a time.

  • Media Sniffer - tool to monitor or 'watch' folders in your computer. With Media Sniffer enabled, the PC Music Library is updated when tracks in monitored folders are added, deleted or moved. This helps to prevent broken links in the PC Music Library. With Slim Devices' Squeezebox, you must manually initiate a "rescan" of the music directory.
