Task For Internet and Multimedia

I took Internet and Multimedia class this semester, while it should be taken last year, but i skipped it. My first task was to make a papers and to present an overview about streaming protocol (RTCP, RTP, RCP). I have found the material, downloaded from the RFC-Editor, a special website that holds a database for RFC documents. These protocol has been standarized, so it was easy to search for them.

The Requests for Comments (RFC) document series is a set of technical and organizational notes about the Internet (originally the ARPANET), beginning in 1969. Memos in the RFC series discuss many aspects of computer networking, including protocols, procedures, programs, and concepts, as well as meeting notes, opinions, and sometimes humor.

The second task is creating a small tutorial using Flash or making a presentation using SMIL (Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language). I have never used SMIL before, so i have no idea what is this about, but here is the summary taken from W3C website :

The Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL, pronounced "smile") enables simple authoring of interactive audiovisual presentations. SMIL is typically used for "rich media"/multimedia presentations which integrate streaming audio and video with images, text or any other media type. SMIL is an easy-to-learn HTML-like language, and many SMIL presentations are written using a simple text-editor.

Based on that summary, i can get an image of what is about. Until now, i still don't have the topics to be made with that SMIL. We will see in the next few days.
