Http_flv_module not working, any idea please

Hi every1,

I’ve NginX running on a “Debian GNU/Linux 5.0” with the following
compile options:

nginx version: nginx/0.8.53
TLS SNI support enabled
configure arguments:
–prefix=/dh/nginx --with-ipv6 --with-pcre --with-md5-asm
–with-sha1-asm --with-http_ssl_module
–with-http_realip_module --with-http_addition_module
–with-http_xslt_module --with-http_image_filter_module
–with-http_sub_module --with-http_dav_module --with-http_flv_module
–with-http_random_index_module --with-http_secure_link_module

The module was included on compile time, “–with-http_flv_module”. On
the configuration file I’ve added the “flv location” as mentioned on”.

On my “error.log” file I find no entries. On the “access.log” file I do
have the requests with the start parameter different from 0
(…start=77454640…), following:

- - [09/Jun/2011:14:58:58 +0200] “GET
/ru/2011-04-24.flv?start=0 HTTP/1.1” 200 537240 “-” “Mozilla/5.0
(Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-GB; rv: Gecko/20110303
- - [09/Jun/2011:14:59:03 +0200] “GET
/ru/2011-04-24.flv?start=77454640 HTTP/1.1” 200 284368 “-” “Mozilla/5.0
(Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-GB; rv: Gecko/20110303

Regarding the file being streamed I’m sure I’ve the “seekpoints” on the
metadata, but still on the browser when I try set the video on a not a
yet downloaded point, it starts from the begigning.
Can someone please help me on this? I’m I missing something
configuration wise…

Thank you in advance,

Lopes, N.

If you see flv pseudo streaming module not working - most likely
you didn’t switch it on. As you mention Apache, you likely use
proxy_pass instead. Note that flv and proxy_pass are mutually

At last! I’m using proxy_pass and bumping my head against the wall for
days! Thanks a LOT!

What exactly is not working? :slight_smile:

Configuration seems to be valid, flv videos existing on the local
storage should be pseudo-streamed by nginx just fine.

If you mean pseudo-streaming does not work for proxied requests, then
apparently something’s wrong with the Apache configuration. Do you have
flv pseudo-streaming in Apache as well?


Flv streaming still does not working
What I doing wrong?
server {
error_log /var/log/nginx/hp8el1;
access_log /var/log/nginx/hp8al1;
client_max_body_size 1024m;
root /home/domain/public_html;

location / {
location ~ \.flv$ { flv; }
error_page 404 = @apache;
error_page 403 = @apache;

location @apache {
