Hello Everyone and thanks for your help in advance. I am wanting to stream flash video files from IIS to an .aspx page. I have added the video/x-flv mime type to IIS, but am still having problems. I have seen a few articles about using HTTP Handlers,
but they seem to be inconsistent and I'm not exactly sure why they woul dbe needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the responses. I have restarted IIS and think I have the page set up correctly, but still doesn't load. Not sure what the problem is:
Here is the page:

I put the following HTML in my page:
However, the video still doesn't play. I'm guessinng its a streaming problem from IIS, but I'm not sure.

can you check IE/Firfox has permission to view your flash file

The file is located in the webroot and has full permissions for anonymous, so I think that is way more than enough. As far as my IE and Firefox, I ahve no problems seeing flash videos. I posted the link to the page in an earlier post, so I am not sure
if others can see it, but I doubt it.

1. Open the site to configure in IIS. Right click and select "Properties"
2. Click the HTTP Headers Tab, select “File Types” under the MIME Map section, and then click "New Type". Enter the following:
1. Associated Extension box: .flv
2. MIME Type box: flv-application/octet-stream
3. Click "OK" and close the IIS Properties box
4. You may need to restart IIS( start->run->iisreset).

Try Changing the value in Object tag.. Value paramter from "myMovie.flv" to "/support/flash/ts/documents/myFlashMovie.swf"
also take Care of Embed tag also

Tried them all. No luck.

Ok. I tried another approach. I wrote an aspx page that reads the flv file in and writes the stream to the browser;
The file now streams the file and opens Adobe Media Player on my desktop. However, I still cannot get the embedded player tow kr correctly. Any ideas?

Did you add httphandler in webconfig file ?
verb="*" path="*.flv" type="FLVStreaming" />
check this website http://blogs.ugidotnet.org/kfra/archive/2006/11/26/57225.aspx
check both .net 1.1 and 2.0

Thanks for the response. I had previosuly found the article you mentioned, however, this did not appear to work. However, I set up an aspx page that reads the file and writes the Flash vido to the browser:
Whe I open that page, Adobe Media Player prompts to download and I can then open the video and play it. However, it does not work in the embedded palyer on the web page. Next, I set up httpHandlers to send any FLV request to this page. So now when you
type the address of the actual video in the browser:
I get a similar prompt from Adobe Media player and I can then play the vidoe on my desktop. So I am now down to the problem of playing the video within a page. My last attempt is at:
The page simply does not load the video and I'm not sure what to do.
