Hello experts,

I have an easy linux questions (I hope so)
I have some files in this folder: /red5/webapps/icl/streams
(ex: video1.flv, video2.flv)

I would like to access them through HTTP: I was thinking the simplest way would be to add a link or symbolic link to this folder:

My site (www.mysite.com) is located on /home/mysite/public_html/

Is there a simple way I can access these files through:
http://www.mysite.com/streams/video1.flv

I heard about symbolic links, but I don't know if they can help me and how to use them.

regards
