FLV 404 Error On Windows 2003 Server IIS 6

The SWF files play correctly, but the FLV video does not stream, when Flash Player movie files(SWF) that stream external FLV files (Flash videos) are placed on a Microsoft Windows 2003 server. These files would work correctly if tested on other operating systems.

Solution is simple:

  1. On the Windows 2003 server, open the Internet Information Services Manager.
  2. Expand the Local Computer Server.
  3. Right-click the local computer server and select Properties.
  4. Select the MIME Types tab.
  5. Click New and enter the following information:
    • Associated Extension box: .FLV
    • MIME Type box: flv-application/octet-stream
  6. Click OK.
  7. Restart the World Wide Web Publishing service by runing iisreset from command prompt
