FLV Flash video streaming with ASP.NET 1.1, IIS and HTTP handler

After releasing the post about FLV Flash video streaming with ASP.NET 2.0, IIS and HTTP handler I have received a couple of requests on how-to run the handler on ASP.NET v1.1, so I decided to "downgrade" the solution and the code to match compatibility with the "old" framework version.

All you need is to install on your IIS 5.0/6.0 the following HTTP handler and to get this to work correctly, you will need to make sure that IIS handles request for .flv files. In your site's properties, click the "Home directory tab" and click the "Configuration" button. You'll get a form like this:

IIS Configuration step 1

Add the entry for .flv, click edit, and copy the path in the executable field. This is the aspnet_isapi.dll for the current version of the .NET Framework v1.1 of your virtual site. Cancel out of that dialog and click "add." Paste the path into the executable, use the extension .flv and set your verbs limited to "GET, POST, HEAD, DEBUG" like this:

IIS Configuration step 2


Now any request for a .flv file on the site will be handled by ASP.NET and you are ready to watch your favourite FLV movies:

You can download ASP.NET v1.1 solution and project files here solution and project files or if you have the chance check online demo here.

For detailed information and ASP.NET 2.0 version have a look to FLV Flash video streaming with ASP.NET 2.0, IIS and HTTP handler or feel free to contact me.

All you old school classic ASP programmers (like me)... I spent my day working on this, and now I'm giving back. I basically reused some ASP code on the web, and adapted it to how the PHP script was working. Enjoy...

<%@Language="VBScript"%>
<%Option Explicit%>
<%Response.Buffer = True%>
<%
On Error Resume Next
Dim strPath
strPath = CStr(request("file"))
'-- do some basic error checking for the QueryString
If strPath = "" Then
Response.Clear
Response.Write("No file specified.")
Response.End
ElseIf InStr(strPath, "..") > 0 Then
Response.Clear
Response.Write("Illegal folder location.")
Response.End
ElseIf Len(strPath) > 1024 Then
Response.Clear
Response.Write("Folder path too long.")
Response.End
Else
Call DownloadFile(strPath)
End If

Private Sub DownloadFile(file)
'--declare variables
Dim strAbsFile
Dim strFileExtension
Dim objFSO
Dim objFile
Dim objStream
Dim pos
if isnumeric(pos) then
pos = cdbl(request("pos"))
else
pos = 0
end if

'-- set absolute file location
strAbsFile = Server.MapPath(file)
'-- create FSO object to check if file exists and get properties
Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'-- check to see if the file exists
If objFSO.FileExists(strAbsFile) Then
Set objFile = objFSO.GetFile(strAbsFile)
'-- first clear the response, and then set the appropriate headers
Response.Clear
Response.AddHeader "Content-Length", objFile.Size
Response.ContentType = "video/x-flv"
Set objStream = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Stream")
objStream.Open
'-- set as binary
objStream.Type = 1
'-- load into the stream the file
objStream.LoadFromFile(strAbsFile)
objStream.Position = pos
'-- send the stream in the response
If pos > 0 then
Response.Write "FLV"
Response.Binarywrite(chrb(1)&chrb(1)&chrb(0)&chrb(0)&chrb(0)&chrb(9)&chrb(0)&chrb(0)&chrb(0)&chrb(9))
end if
Response.BinaryWrite(objStream.Read)
objStream.Close
Set objStream = Nothing
Set objFile = Nothing
Else 'objFSO.FileExists(strAbsFile)
Response.Clear
Response.Write("No such file exists.")
End If
Set objFSO = Nothing
End Sub

Hi,

How can i restrict someone from watching the flv video directly, i mean if he tries to type the url path of the flv directly in the browser, he should not be allowed to view the video file, the users should only be allowed to watch the movie, from the web site.

Srujan.

Hello.

I found a bug in your .Net 1.1 Source Code: at line 31:
if(qs == null && qs == string.Empty)

I think this will never happend ;-)
Here's my solution:
if (qs == null || qs.Trim().Equals(String.Empty))

Sincerely yours,
FDE
