Where Cpanel Support Team advice to add AddHandler flv-stream .flv?

Customer Support Response:

What I would suggest is moving it instead to /usr/local/apache/conf/includes/pre_virtualhost_global.conf, that way it’s loaded immediately after the other AddHandler and AddType lines, and that also puts it being added after the loading of instead of before it.
