Selam Hakan:)
 the "start" variable stands for "start from XXX byte" -not second- ,
you must check compile time options (did you configure with
--with-http_flv_module? ) , check config file  and file path in flash

It's up to your Flash player to set the ?start= parameter correctly.
What player are you using. Do you see any video or is it just that you
can't scrub in the timeline?
