 I am facing some problem while trying to read a "media" file with "markers"
using Ambulant player. Please see the smil file below.

 It so happens, that the 1st .mp4 file, namely "Gorill2.mp4" plays well, in
Ambulant player 2.0.2 using clipBegin element with absolute time. However,
the Ambulant player complains of "Cannot parse clipBegin" and "Cannot parse
clipEnd" when it tries to read Movie2.flv, which is a .mp4 file with cue
points "Begin" and "End" in a separate file, namely "movie2.txt", the
contents of which are listed below the smil file.
The movie2.flv is created unsing Flash 8 encoder.

 Am I going wrong in somewhere ? Also, is there an alternative way of
marking cue points to a .mp4 file, to be read from a SMIL file ?

      <video src="Gorill2.mp4" clipBegin="npt=4s" clipEnd="npt=8s"/>
 <!--
   <video src="Movie2.flv" clipBegin="marker=movie2.txt#Begin"
clipEnd="marker=movie2.txt#End"/>	    	     -->
    </par>
</body>
</smil>
