I'd like to test your project assuming one of the videos is a live mpeg stream.

Assuming you're using the Real G2 system and wanting to
embed the smil presentation in a web page you'll need to do
these things.

The embed type is audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin -- for some reason
Real didn't set up their Netscape plugin to handle application/smil.
Explorer handles it just fine.

The MIME type to return from the CGI is application/smil though.

Hi, I am working on a project that dynamically creates a smil file based
on a users selections of videos.  I would like to be able to send the
smil file staright to the users browser by either specifying the mime
type or using an embed tag.  I tried specifying the mime type but that
does not seem to work.  I was wondering if there is some way to do it
using embed tags.  Right now I have to save the smil file in my real
server content directory and then redirect the html page to the smil
file.  I would like to just send it to the browser so that the files are
not saved on my machine.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
