Configuring FLV files for hosting on a web server

These days I am involved in a project which uses a lot of videos. This project need to be delivered as a CD version as well as a web version.

The obvious choice for videos was FLV. It was working fine for the CD version which was delivered successfully. The problem came when we hosted the same version on our local IIS. The video files will not play. It was a funny situation because it was working locally, on Apache server but not IIS.

Then we came across this. Apparently, you need to add FLV as a MIME type to your IIS server. The exact type which should be added is "video/x-flv".
