Whitebear Media Server

Slim Devices was one of the pioneers in streaming audio.

Their Squeezeboxes become very popular.

Probably because they were pioneers they choose to develop their own protocol.


Today a lot of streaming devices and media players are UPnP/DLNA compliant.

SqueezeServer can see other DLNA servers and read their content.

This enables Squeezeboxes to play from other DLNA servers.


Whitebear truly bridges the gap between the DLNA and the Squeeze world.


Media Server
Whitebear is a UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) and DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatible Digital Media Server (DMS) that acts as a front end for Logitech's Squeezebox Server.  This enables UPnP/DLNA compliant Digital Media Players (DMP) to access, browse and play tracks from your Squeezebox Server library.

Media Renderer
In addition Whitebear is an individual UPnP/DLNA compatible Digital Media Renderer (DMR) that acts as a front end for each Logitech Squeezebox player that it finds in your home audio network.  This enables UPnP/DLNA compliant Control Points to control and play music files on the respective Squeezebox player by means of the "Play To" context menu.
