Josh Kahn suggested the Real Networks G2 release..but it is not yet being
generally released to developer members ...I am one and just attended their
conference this past week...begged for one, but no go. They are planning a
beta release in May. However, from Jin Yu:

You might want to try HPAS:


I'm still working on the install...can't get the Intel JMF to run on
Navigator 4.04, but will try again with 4.05.

I'm trying to get my hands on a SMIL client....but the only one I have found
is by CWI and only available to W3C members.  Can anyone suggest where else
I can find one?
