My Site does not stream FLV videos

Issue
 

When Flash Player movie files that stream external FLV files (Flash videos) are placed on a Microsoft Windows 2003 server and then viewed in a browser, the SWF file plays correctly, but the FLV video does not stream. These files work correctly if tested on other operating systems. The issue affects all FLV files played via Windows 2003 server.

This TechNote describes the steps necessary to allow Windows 2003 to stream Flash Video files.

Note: These instructions are provided as a courtesy for customers and address the issue in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 rather than Flash.

 

Reason
 

With IIS 6.0, Microsoft changed the way streaming media is handled. Previous versions of IIS did not require any modification to stream Flash Video. Microsoft IIS 6.0, the default web server that ships with Windows 2003, requires a MIME type to recognize that FLV files are streamed media.

 

Solution
 

Login to the Helm Control Panel.
goto to domain menu.
Click on MIME Types icon.
Click on Add New button to add a new MIME type.
Enter the following information:
Extension: .FLV
Content Type:flv-application/octet-stream
Click Save.
