Thanks!  I'm not familiar with SMIL.  I will have to check into this and 
run some tests.

In playing some more, my interleaved players do a better job on a 
network.  With a single player, it took 34 almost 35 seconds to play a 
string of 10 files.  With 2 interleaved players, it took 23 seconds, since 
the one player was loading the next file while the other was playing the 
previous file.
