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:


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


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


  • Play(): play a SMIL


Programming tools including the Visual Studio Express directly suports making SOAP calls from Windows. More information is available below.
