So, time for me to sit down and actually learn some of this URL rewriting stuff that I havent actually bothered to learn yet.

I'm trying to do this, but just getting a 404 error;

Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /spamable/
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !id=(.*)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)\.flv$ index.php?id=$1 [L]
the idea is to make a directory in which i can call any file name (ending in .flv) and push it invisibly to index.php, so i can throw some junk data out.
