SMIL sample files can be found in a new githib repo.

Read this article for more details.

Codecs


We also extended codecs coverage for Nimble Streamer.
We introduced support for PCM, or G711, (both a-law and μ-law) audio codec.
It can be used as input for Nimble Streamer Live Transcoder for further transformation into AAC.
It also can be used for RTSP transmuxing - it will be passed through from input to output.

Mobile SDK


Our mobile SDK for Android now has new application graphics and layout. It's a lot nicer now - get it on Google Play to check.
