You have to encode the FLV file to change the metadata in the FLV file...  You cannot dynamically change the metadata while you have it on the client side...  You will need a server side solution to achieve that...  Not sure what that would be though...  
Maybe you might want to try these to see if they can help you on that...

Yes, I am doing it on server side not on client side. Is there only encoding solution to change the header of FLV file....

I am not aware of the server side product that only modifies the header...  I googled and I don't seem to find anything relevant...  :(
