Serving FLV video files from an MS server

When serving .flv files off of a Windows Server 2003 (or any other Windows server I would imagine) requires setting up the MIME type on the server first (it isn't one of the native MIME types on MS servers).

1) Select the site to configure in IIS, right click and select "Properties"
2) Under the "HTTP Headers" Tab, click "MIME Types" under the MIME types section
3) Click "New."
4) Type ".flv" as the associated extension and "video/x-flv" as the content type.
5) Click "OK"
6) Click "OK"
