They probably have the most complete implementation of the SMIL 2.0 spec. I bought a copy through work and it's quite impressive (and expensive). I've been rather too busy lately to devote much time using it. Of course, you can write SMIL by hand, but the editor does a great job letting you visualize and rehearse your animation as well as catch syntax errors and alert you to potential timing problems due to bandwidth and streaming media. It also allows you to publish to selected players (e.g., RealOne, IE6+TIME) and they claim initial support for "players that implement the SMIL Basic/3GPP profile for mobile applications", which of course, interests me greatly.

In my opinion (which I've just formed) multiple types of playlists would be preferred. A QT SMIL playlist for QT files, a Real SMIL playlist for Real and WMV files and so on. You can't play all video formats in a single player anyway (maybe VLC, but that one has no SMIL support) so it doesn't make sense to make a playlist with many different video formats inside. > Andreas has the PINGBACK theory..but we still need a proof of concept. > is everyone who knows html ready to volunteer? I'd still like testers. I found an interesting thing about Wordpress yesterday while playing around with Lisa Harper's blog (my instructions don't work). They've changed so much between the current nightly version and the last stable version that we might have to wait until the next Wordpress release. -- Personal: File Thingie - PHP File Manager Yahoo!
