You can embed metadata in an FLV file.

See to inject metadata: http://www.buraks.com/flvmdi/
See to inspect metadata: http://www.buraks.com/flvmdv/

When you're playing the FLV file using the NetStream class you can create an onMetaData function in the class which is managing your NetStream and assign the NetStream's client property to "this".

See code snippet.

Then you can either set the Image's source based on the number of event's you've received so far or you can embed your own properties like "imagesource=imageX.jpg" in the each of the metadata/cuepoints you embed in the FLV.

public class MyNetStreamOwningClass {
 
     private var ns:NetStream = new NetStream(myNetConnection);
 
     public function MyNetStreamOwningClass(){
          ns.client = this;
          ns.play( "myMovie.flv" );
     }
 
     public function onMetaData( e:Object ):void {
          trace( "METADATA EVENT: " + e.toString() );
          // TODO: code to display new Image
          // e.g. myImage.source = ...
     }
}
