Abstract

We present a new medium composed of arbitrary commands. This command stream is a presentation medium that can be browsed at varying speeds, forwards and backwards, and with random access. Command streams can be synchronized with video, audio, and other media in multimedia presentations. We have used them to implement animation, timed user interaction, and device control. This paper discusses the design and implementation of the command stream. We address the intractability of inverting and skipping arbitrary code by constructing commands that are aware of their position in time and include logic for supporting VCR-style playback options.
