mod_flvx

A custom module that enables FLV progressive streaming.

This guide assumes you built Apache from source using my guide.

1. Download the mod_flvx source from https://github.com/osantana/mod_flvx
2. As root run:

/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs -ci mod_flvx.c

3. The module will be installed correctly in /usr/local/apache/modules
4. Create a new folder called custom under /usr/local/apache/conf
5. Create a new file called httpd-modflvx.conf in /usr/local/apache/conf/custom with the following content

LoadModule flvx_module modules/mod_flvx.so
AddHandler flv-stream .flv

<IfModule mime_module%gt;
AddType video/x-flv .flv
</IfModule>

6. Make sure you include the new “custom” folder in your main httpd.conf

Include /usr/local/apache/conf/custom/*.conf

7. Restart apache web server
