providing a reference SMIL 3.0 implementation

The Ambulant Open SMIL Player is an open-source, full W3C SMIL player. It is intended for researchers who need source-code access to a complete SMIL player environment. It may also be used as a stand-alone SMIL player for applications that do not need proprietary media formats. The player will support a range of SMIL profiles (including desktop and mobile configurations) and will run under Linux and Win32. A Macintosh OS-X port is also expected.

The target community for the Ambulant Player are developers of multimedia protocols, networks and infrastructures. The Ambulant Player represents the first phase of a multi-year project aimed at improving network level support for multimedia information processing. As one of the results, the Ambulant team contributed considerably to the SMIL 3.0 specification.
