Chapter 27. Introduction to SMIL

SMIL (Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language, pronounced "smile") is a markup language (like HTML) for combining audio, video, text, animation, and graphics in a precise, synchronized fashion. A SMIL file instructs the client to retrieve media elements that reside on the server as standalone files. Those separate elements are then assembled and played by the SMIL player. The advantages of SMIL include the ability to:

  • Integrate media elements in a time-based presentation

  • Reuse media elements in multiple presentations

  • Allow users to choose the media tracks they prefer, for example, based on connection speed or language preferences

  • Add hyperlinks in a time-based presentation
