Synopsis

This module provides the ability to seek within FLV (Flash) files using byte-based offsets.

Module ngx_http_flv_module offers special handling of files it handles:

  • adds FLV header to the requested file;
  • transfers file, beginning from the displacement, specified in the request argument start=XXX.

This module is not compiled by default and must be specified using the --with-http_flv_module argument to configure when compiling Nginx.

Example:

location ~ \.flv$ {
  flv;
}
