FLV is a well known file format, but IIS6 doesn’t support natively.
You get a HTTP404 error even if file is really there. 😦
You must explicitly enable it, via IIS Manager.
If you have IIS6 then read this post: How to enable FLV file playback in IIS 6
On Windows7, FLV is already enabled so you don’t have to change IIS7 settings, except if you to disable FLV 🙂
Run IIS Manager, from Control Panel\Adminstrative Tools, select main node (your host), then icon Request Filter in IIS section (middle of the page) …
… right-click “Deny File Name Extension…”
… fill in “FLV” or the file extension desidered then you get list updated
Now, FLV is HTTP404 Not Found. 🙂
