SMIL media players often also provide a network interface based on SOAP (historically short for "Simple Object Access Protocol").

SOAP Interfaces

A typical SOAP network API supports the following objects and methods from a digital signage media player:

Session

  • Login(): initiate a new command session
  • Logout(): end a command session

ContentManager

  • CreateObject(): upload a file into the media player
  • FindObjet(): enumerate files in the media player
  • RemoveResource(): delete a file in the media player

MediaControl

  • Play(): play a SMIL
