    I was wondering if you guys new exactly what the Flash module is for in easyapache? I was told that *.flv extensions should work by default on the cPanel setup? Anyone have any ideas?

    I guess it doesnt work huh?

    Wouldn't it simply be a mime type for .flv extensions to ensure they are handled properly? The mime types for Apache are at /usr/local/apache/conf/mime.types location.

    Have you tried testing if they work first? I find testing if something works or not, then trying to investigate when it doesn't work is usually the best approach.

    My machine doesn't have .flv set for the mime type, but everything I've read online as well as experience on how files need a file type to work indicates that you simply would need to set a mime type for it.

    The mime type for that file could likely be set:

    Code:
    cd /usr/local/apache/conf
    cp mime.types mime.types.bak101015
    echo "video/x-flv flv" >> mime.types
    This would add a line at the end of the mime.types file for that extension. Otherwise, if you don't want to globally set it, have the user set it in cPanel > Mime Types area where the user can define their own mime types there.

    One last query !!

    Is it resource intensive ? is it advisable to enable it server wide or keep it restricted to a single domain ?

    If they will be streaming flash videos on the machine, it can be intensive depending on how long the video or videos happen to be, how large those video or videos happen to be, and how many site visitors they will have at the same time.

    You might just want to add the mime type for the one account using cPanel > Mime Types area. Of note, if you have cPanel > Mime Types enabled for accounts to use in WHM > Feature Manager, then anyone should be able to run .flv files anyway by adding the mime type.
