Production Issue - .flv problem - IIS not serving file????

In development I successful created a video player using the flex VideoComponent, and .flv flash video file.

when I deployed to production, I received a "Cannot call reconnect on an http connection" error. The .flv isn't loaded...

When I access the .flv directly in the browser locally "http://localhost..." it allows me to download. On production, I don't get anything.

Are these issues related? Anyone know what's going on?

I recently recommended to use Firexox+Firebug or Chrome (developer tools) to have a look at what HTTP-Requests are actually executed and what the responses were. Usually Problems of your sort are related to files not being loaded from where they should be.

Thank you for responding! I am on the web server right now, and the file is absolutely there. I am loading the other files and swfs, and can also navigate to them directly.

I'm only having issues with the .flv file.

Any other ideas?

I would use Firefox and LiveHTTP headers to see what MIME type is being returned.  Then I'd check to see if IE recognizes it.

I mean does IIS server up that type properly.

Thanks all, the solution I used was similar to shalabhsharma's answer.

I added a MIME type to IIS for .flv file types as flv-application/octet-stream

*note: restart IIS to see the changes.
