Tools for Editing SMIL Files for Wowza Streaming Engine

There are some great tools for editing SMIL Files for Wowza Streaming Engine. You’ll need tools such as these when performing editing and updates that cannot be accomplished with Wowza Streaming Engine Manager. In these cases to edit your SMIL files, you must use a Text Editor to make the changes. Editors such as: Notepad++, Text Wrangler, and BBEdit work well for this. For Mac Text Wrangler works great if you have an older OS that supports it. For newer Mac Operating Systems, you must use BBEdit. NotePad++ is excellent when working on Windows.
