Implementing the SMIL Specification

Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) is a W3C recommendation for encoding multimedia presentations. It provides presentational control over not just the spatial layout of the document, but also the relationship between elements over time. At the present time there does not appear to be a high quality Open Source implementation of the SMIL 2.0 specification available. This paper describes one attempt at an implementation. Some ideas about where future software development could take this implementation to fulfill the requirements of other projects are also mentioned.
