If you have a longer video in your document, you may want to let the user jump…to a specific spot without having to manually scrub the video slider.…By setting up custom navigation points, you can connect buttons in your layout…to jump to these points.…We are going to start up by grabbing this Flash video file and opening up the media player.…Down here are our navigation points.…We want to create one for our Intro, Bottles, and Snow Boarding buttons.…That way when we click on these buttons, they jump to that particular spot in the video.…Intro is going to be around 15 seconds.…We are going to scrub this guy to about 15 seconds, and we'll hit the Plus…button and we'll type in Intro.…

There you go.…That's good. And we will hit plus and we'll call this one Bottles.…Finally, Snow Boarding is going to be at 5 minutes and 47 seconds.…
