I have a .flv file on my web site and I want to know how many times it is downloaded (viewed) on a given day.  Is this logged somewhere in Server 2003?

thanks for your reply.  I have these settings already.  There are logs begin created in C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\MSFTPSVC259463726 directory, but .flv and other files (like.jpg) are not recorded.  What am I missing?

I have the same issue.  I have flv files which are viewed with progressive download.  They do NOT show up in the log files for iis.  Please let me know why this is and if there is any software, even if I have to buy it, that gives good stats on downloads of video and mp3 files.  We are a multimedia site so I need this.  Thank you.

I narrowed it down more.  If it's a file directly downloaded, it registers in the iis logs, if the video is viewed by progressive download, it does not show up.  Know of any way to make this show up in the logs?  Or is there another software out there?  Thank you.

I'm going to open a new thread, maybe this one is too old.
