Description:

Zencoder supports adding event and navigation cue points to VP6 Flash Video (FLV) files. Cue points are embedded in the FLV stream and FLV metadata packet when you encode the FLV file.

There are two cue point types: "navigation" and "event". Navigation cue points can be used to let users seek to a specified part of a video file. Navigation cue points create a keyframe at the specified cue point location, so you can use code to move a video player’s playhead to that location. You can set particular points in an FLV file where you might want users to seek. For example, your video might have multiple chapters or segments, and you can control the video by embedding navigation cue points in the video file.

Event cue points can be used to perform actions in a SWF video player that are triggered at specified points during FLV playback.

For more information, see this Adobe article about cue points.
