The AMBULANT Open SMIL Player is an open-source media player with support for SMIL 2.1. The current AMBULANT release provides namespace-based support for the SMIL Language, Extended Mobile, Mobile, and Basic profiles. The current release also provides full backward compatibility with SMIL 2.0.
AMBULANT is intended for researchers and developers who want an source-code player upon which they can build higher-level systems solutions for authoring and content integration, or within which they can add new or extended support for networking and media transport components.
The AMBULANT player may also be used as a complete, multi-platform media player for applications that do not need support for closed, proprietary media formats. If you want to use AMBULANT as a media player, please keep in mind that licensing issues prevent us from providing support for RealMedia or WindowsMedia proprietary formats in this release of AMBULANT.
All versions of AMBULANT are covered by a Lesser GNU Public License (LGPL).
What this Means: If you HAVE any - this Application will NICELY Play your .smil files for you. And that "LGPL" Part means you don't have to pay anything for this Media Player. http://www.cwi.nl/projects/Ambulant/
