Hello Philip,

Many thanks for your answer, that's very kind of you!

I knew about the players, though QuickTime doesn't take care of the images format.
About Ambulant, both player and plugin are quite useful.
My ambition was to have a software that needs no other installation than a webbrowser.
This means no player, no plugin. 
At first I thought of a mere SMIL 3.0 (or 2.0) file, but this seems quite impossible with the usual browsers without adding code in javascript and other languages.

Once again, thank you very much!
I wish you a nice day

Hello Carol,

Depending upon the version of SMIL you are using you should be able to
open them in QuickTime or RealPlayer. I say should, it's been a while
since I've played with SMIL. Also there's Ambulant
<http://www.ambulantplayer.org/> too. Someone more up-to-date may be able
to give you better info.

I hope that's useful.
