Hi this a bit out of my technical expertise but how about starting with Windows Media Tools, the two i was thinking of>>
Windows Media ASF Indexer. A graphical tool for editing .asf files. Use Windows Media ASF Indexer to add indexing, properties, markers, and scripts to an existing .asf file and to trim the beginning and ending portions of the .asf file.
 
" ASFChop. A command-line utility for editing .asf files. Use ASFChop to add markers, scripts, and properties to an .asf file or to delete time periods from an .asf file.
 
" ASFCheck. A command-line utility for verifying .asf file formats. ASFCheck can identify problems within an .asf file and effect repairs when possible.

Hi Merete,

Thanks for the comment : )

I found the link: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/encoder/utilities.aspx

and think that ASFChop is not longer available.

Now I got progress, I found that I can use Windows Media File Editor to create markers in a video file, and those markers can be imported/exported to a header file. It looks good for me, and the only problem left is:

How to import the header file to a video file via programming.

any idea? If I can done that I think my problem can be resolved.
