    Cue Points: flv embedded

    Dear all,

    Could you tell me where I can find a tutorial about using cue points?

    I got a video (flv) embedded into my timeline. I already added some cue points using Flash video encoder and now I want to trigger the cue points. According to Flash help I have to use NetStream.onCuePoint but I do not have idea how to use it.

    I will appreciate your help.


    PD: I am using Flash CS3 not Flex

    Dear all,

    I found this tutorial that helped me to control cue points in a embedded video. Maybe it could be useful for you too:


    And this is the code I used

    HTML Code:
    video_component.addEventListener(MetadataEvent.CUE_POINT, cp_listener);
    function cp_listener(eventObject:MetadataEvent):void {
            trace("Elapsed time in seconds: " + video_component.playheadTime);
            trace("Cue point name is: " +;
            trace("Cue point type is: " +;

    costa, I don't think you will be able to get CuePoints working in an embedded video. There are generally 3 options for video in flash:

    1. As you mentioned in your first post the help says NetStream.onCuePoint so one option is to use the NetStream class and load your video file externally.

    2. You could use the FLVPlayback component that is in flash to load your video file externally.

    3. Embeded video is EMBEDED to your timeline, so why do you need to add cue points? you can just add keyframes along the timeline of your video and put some ActionScript calls there.

    Hope this helps, if you are embedding the video, just add the code in an actions layer, although if the video is embedded it may be HUGE depending on the size of the video. It may make sense to use one of the other two methods, primarily NetStream!

    I'm using this "simple" actionscript to add cuepoint to a flv video to trigger some actionsript.
    (your imported flv video is "flvmovie"

    flvmovie.addASCuePoint(2, "cue1");
    flvmovie.addASCuePoint(4, "cue2");
    flvmovie.addASCuePoint(6, "cue3");

    var listenerObject:Object = new Object();
    listenerObject.cuePoint = function(eventObject:Object):Void {
    if ( == "cue1") {
    _level0.vierkant.SETX = 0;//some action
    if ( == "cue2") {
    _level0.vierkant.SETX = 100;
    trace("Elapsed time in seconds: "+flvmovie.playheadTime);
    trace("Cue point name is: ";

    flvmovie.addEventListener("cuePoint", listenerObject);
