📌 The .SMIL file entities store and maintain multimedia presentations written and encoded in the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL), which is pretty close by the layout and composition to the .HTML markup logic. Essentially, the .SMIL tech definition is exploited for the development of audiovisual presentations and slideshows. Besides, the .SMIL data resources may include embedded references to streaming video and audio content and plain text. Initially, the standard has acquired wide support with multiple legacy Nokia cell phones, such as Series 60 (S60) generation, 3560, and 6600 models. .SMIL data records can be opened up and generated by the Messaging Application integrated into the phone’s software toolkit.
📌 The .SMIL file resources can be opened up and revealed by Apple QuickTime Player, perfectly adapted for macOS systems. Moreover, the specification is broadly compliant with the RealPlayer package, supported by all modern Windows generations and builds. At last, the aforementioned documents can be reviewed, opened, and tracked with the assistance of a basic Microsoft IE web-browser, preinstalled on your hardware machine. Last but not least, the .SMIL extension structure is acknowledged by RealTimes Video Maker suite, optimized for utilization in actual and former generations of Android and iOS platforms. The technology serves as an enhancement of .HTML specification, which was quite common and spread in the early 90’s. Until now, the development and maintenance of the tech standard has been entirely ceased and discontinued.
