I think the collection of refernces at http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo/
is the most complete.
Another suggested reading :
understanding networked multimedia,
François Flckiger,
Prentice Hall.
ISBN 0 - 13-190992-4.
I tested the Helio SMIL Tutorial
http://www.helio.org/products/smil/tutorial/
with a gruop of Techaers at Berne University:
they found SMIL rather reserved to the specialists,
although I think, if one's not afraid of HTML SMIL is
easy.
I have in mind to write next week a SMIL that enables
Live MPEG Streaming.

If anybody has demand for a streaming media source,
we have 24 hours stream at

Hi all,

I received last night a question in my mail box:
> I am trying to create streaming media presentations on line
> [...] Are there any good reference books you could
> recommend [for SMIL beginners]?

I made a search at amazon.com and found 2 books:

Web Developer.Com Guide to Streaming Multimedia
   Jose Alvear / Paperback / Published 1998

Realmedia Complete : Streaming Audio and Video over the Web
   Jonathan Angle, Jonathan Angel / Paperback / Published 1999

But I do not know if they even talk about SMIL...
Did you read those books (opinions?) and do you know others,
even only planed ?
