FLV files on IIS

It seems that IIS doesn't understand what a FLV file is by default. So, we need to add a MIME type to the IIS configuration so that when IIS starts sending data to the browser, the browser understands what the data is. We add the .flv MIME type like this:

  1. Open the IIS Manager, select the site and select "Properties"
  2. Choose the "HTTP Headers" tab and select "MIME Types"
  3. Click "New"
  4. type ".flv" as the extension and "video/x-flv" as the content type
  5. Select "OK" twice and close the IIS manager
Congratulations, you've just added Flash video support to your IIS installation.
