 	I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but there are three 
different ways to move around a video from within avidemux:
1. Frame by frame
2. Keyframe by keyframe (approx 1/2 second each click)
3. Blank frame search (avidemux trys to figure out where the black frames 
are... probably what you're talking about).

 	Using the mpeg2->mpeg2 cutting generates a cutlist for avidemux 
using some mythtv/database/perl/configfilegenerating hackery.
