Tutorial: RealSystem G2 and SMIL

By Scott Clark RealSystem's G2 The Web and its related technologies are maturing, starting to take shape and become that which we've been yearning for all this time. The caveman days of the Web are over! After all, even our great-grandfathers knew how to make simple flipbook animations, and the majority of animation on the Web has been simple multiple-frame GIFs--today's version of those ancient flipbooks. And the video up until now has been stuff that no undergraduate would even consider presenting to his professor. So why all the hubbub about the Web? The answer to that lies in our ideas about what the Web is capable of becoming. For the last several years we've been pushing the envelope of what could be done with a Web browser further and further. The browser was not designed for multimedia, and early attempts were feeble, often reminding us of the AM radio some of us remember from childhood. Several companies, including Microsoft and RealNetworks, have produced software "plug-ins" or helper applications for the Web browser which enable it to display both audio and video either within the browser itself, seamlessly, or within an external application which is opened by the Web browser. The quality of the audio and video is surprisingly good, and has opened the door for the creation of many innovative Web productions.
