Helix-player, available as a Debian package for i386 and powerpc, is
capable of handling "Basic SMIL 2.0" (according to the package
description; I have never had an occasion to try it myself).
Another thing: Please stop using replies to other list messages as a way
to start new threads. Many email programs use the In-Reply-To header as
the primary basis for threading; this means that your message will be
included in an unrelated thread, regardless of the changed subject line.
Here is what that looks like with Mutt:
1 L 04.07.07 Tony Heal ( 10K) upgrading to etch
2 L 04.07.07 Sam Leon (0.3K) ├─>Playing SMIL File
3 L 04.07.07 michael AT estone DOT ca (5.3K) ├─>Re: upgrading to etch
4 L 04.07.07 Ivan Aleman (4.4K) ├─>
5 L 04.07.07 Daniel Burrows (4.0K) └─>
This practice of "thread-jacking" is problematic:
- People who want to follow Tony Heal's thread about upgrading to etch
are interrupted by a completely unrelated message. This might annoy
- Anyone who is not interested in Tony's question might delete the
entire thread without realizing that there was a another topic
involved. This reduces the number of people who read your message,
which obviously decreases your chances of getting help.
