Default smil and mplayer (playlist)

I was looking at playlists here: http://gonze.com/playlists/playlist-
format-survey.html and like smil, but can't get the hang of it.

GNOME mplayer, which is all I'm interested in using, opens the .pls
and .m3u playlists fine, but neither of those support metadata, which,
being xml, smil does. Samples:

thufir@tleilax:~/Music$ cat foo.m3u



thufir@tleilax:~/Music$ cat foo.smil
<root-layout width='320' height='160' background-color='#ffffff' />
<region id='logo' left='0' top='0' width='320' height='160' z-index='1' />

<audio id='audio1' xsrc='http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?
<img xsrc='http://search.rte.ie/webbug/image.php?document=http://
www.rte.ie/rams/radio/latest/rte-balfebatrte.smil' />

<audio id='audio2' xsrc='http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?
<img xsrc='http://search.rte.ie/webbug/image.php?document=http://
www.rte.ie/rams/radio/latest/rte-balfebatrte.smil' />



Specifically, what I want is to populate the "artist" and "album" fields
which GNOME mplayer displays, so that, in a list of internet radio
stations, I can see what's what. I'm only interested in GNOME mplayer.
