Windows 2003 Server does not stream FLV videos


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, including files made with the Flash Video Kit for Dreamweaver MX 2004.

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.
