Let's say you're on Youtube, and you're watching a video, and on the progress bar there are little dots where, if you click on them, you get extra text or links or pictures pertinent to the video, ads, etc. What are those things called?

This is a translation question about an article describing the same feature on a Chinese video website. The term in Chinese is "视频节点技术", which directly translates to "video node technology". I'm also sure I'm not mistaking this for anything else, because I'm looking at pictures of it.
Anybody know this one? I've been trying every search string I can think of, and it's getting me nowhere!
