The best way to achieve this would probably be to combine all your clips
into one big clip, then just jump to the time (cuepoints) in the video which
has that part in it.
As for best format, if you're after quality then mpeg2 is your best bet,
there are quite a few xtras out there (have a look on the macromedia site
for a list of xtras that will control mpeg2) that will help you display and
navigate it all properly.
