Being frustrated with the implementation of the Adobe Golive MMS extensions for Nokia, I decided to build a small Windows utility to do a better job wrapping the 3 Nokia utilities (converter.exe, deploy.exe, and mms2http.exe). By using my utility you will no longer need to use Adobe GoLive to encapsulate SMIL files as MMS, or to deploy them to the emulator or a host server.
The utility is available for anyone who would like to use it at at http://www.facetofacesoftware.com/smil2mms.exe. I have tried to put as much error checking in as possible, but am restricted by what the 3 Nokia utilities return as far as errors. In the future it might also be nice to do a syntax check on the source SMIL file, since the converter.exe doesn't do much to report on syntax or content problems.
Let me know what you think.
