Storing Flash Video files in Sitecore media library


You can certainly do this as many other things, but there is a little bit of a problem here. Since all media stored within Sitecore has a media request handler assigned to it, the actual URL of the media item will have the "ASHX" extension.

The flash video component expects only MP3 and FLV extensions as a source, so "ASHX" will not be processed.

In order to have this working, follow this article for the directions and configure the FLV extension accordingly.

flv mime type is not added in the mimetypes.config and also jpg is commented in the config file. Why?

Sounds like a feature request. I will let the developers know.

BTW, JPG is registered in main web.config as a media type so it is not needed to have it be registered within mimetypes.config.

For FLV, it makes sense to add it by default.

Thanks!
