I found some code-snippets here on webmasterworld, but still did not manage to modify them properly. Is there an additonal .htaccess-entry required? Or is that an alternative method? What's the exact syntax for a file named "test.flv"?
Unfortunately, very few servers that are offered to support FLV or better ffmpeg and ruby
Ask your hosting provider if it supports flv but never be able to view videos stored on your hosting.
Another simplest and cheapest option is to take the HTML code that provide site youtube.com type, mivideotube.com, dailymotion.com or similar and paste this code into your website
Necessarily limited, but no Flash authoring software required.
as a matter of fact I downloaded a good swf-player and managed to implement the video a day before christmas.

Yes. I recall defining this in .htaccess when I put a google-earth-kmz-file on our "about-us-" page. But I thought that
a) the header of the .flv-file: Content-type: application/x-shockwave-flash
b) the object-notation: <object classid="CLSID:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="450" height="450"
which I found in various threads would automatically force the browser to download flash-player.
Do I really have to define this additionally in .htaccess? If so, what is the precise systax?
In addition to all this, I believe it is quite important to get flash-tags of whatever kind (e.g. text) indexed by the search-engines for reasons of SEO. I still have to learn quite a lot on all this.
And if memory serves, Flash 8 should normally be enough.
