http_flv module

http_flv module#

The module provides pseudo-streaming server-side support for Flash Video (FLV) files.

It handles requests with the start argument in the request URI’s query string specially, by sending back the contents of a file starting from the requested byte offset and with the prepended FLV header.

When building from the source code, this module isn’t built by default; it should be enabled with the ‑‑with‑http_flv_module build option.

In packages from our repositories, the module is included in the build.
