I actually found a free Flash application (".swf" file) that allows
you to simply tell it what FLV file to stream, and it does all the work.
I don't need to generate separate SWF files for each video.  Just change
a variable in the HTML's "<object>" tag.


I found that ffmpeg on my Debian Stable colo server lacked MP3 support,
so my AVI->FLV conversions were dropping audio.  So, I installed LAME from
source, and FFMPEG with "--enable-libmp3lame" from source.

I just ran  ffmpeg -i INPUT.avi -acodec mp3 -ar 22050 OUTPUT.flv
on each of the AVIs, and I should be set!
