Paper Abstract

Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) is a recommendation developed by the Synchronized Multimedia Working Group in the World Wide Web Consortium. SMIL is a simple and standard way to specify a timeline based synchronized multimedia presentation over the Internet. It is a declarative authoring language based on a Extensible Markup Language to define language-specific data types and tags. A SMIL player schedules presentation in a SMIL file, and retrieves media objects on the Web using URLs described in the field. The SMIL file is a plain text file and can be edited using a simple text editor. We present the approaches of implementing a SMIL player within the desktop system constraints. The reference implementation is a Java applet, which follows a platform-neutral programming paradigm and makes use of Java Media Framework. The applet can run in any main stream web browser.
