Add Bookmarks to Your Movie

Both QuickTime and Windows Media have a feature to allow viewers to jump to specific points in a video. Using this feature, you can create a casting reel for your movie.

When casting for a movie, you have to audition a lot of people. Even after narrowing down your list of candidates, you still want to view their auditions easily. You might even want to distribute video to your colleagues for their input. You can either pass along one videotape or DVD per candidate, or you can create a single digital video file and allow people to jump from one candidate to another easily.

To enable people to move from one section of video to another, you need to create locators in the video. In QuickTime these locators are called chapters, and in Windows Media they are called markers. For the sake of consistency, I will refer to them as bookmarks when referring to their use in both systems.
