I'm trying to get the mod_h264_streaming to work with my Apache2 server. I downloaded a precompiled version of the mod from here. I read here that all I have to do is extract the file to my modules folder, which I did, and add

LoadModule h264_streaming_module modules/
AddHandler h264-streaming.extensions .mp4

to the httpd.conf, which I also did. However, I get this error when I restart Apache:

Syntax error on line 173 of C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Group/Apache2/conf/httpd.conf:
Cannot load C:/Program Files (x86)/Apache Group/Apache2/modules/ into server: The specified module could not be found.
Note the errors or messages above, and press the <ESC> key to exit.  26...

Even though the file exists right here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Apache Group\Apache2\modules\

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

It probably requires some other file that you don't have. If you have a dependency walker, point it at the module. – David Schwartz Dec 14 '12 at 1:35

From the name of your Apache installation's directory I assume that you're running Apache 2.0.x. This plugin seems to be broken when being ran on 2.0 branch. The documentation says it's minimal version requirement is 2.0.55 as stated here, but I was not able to run this module at all with 2.0.64 from this official mirror.

I was successful in running that plugin with 2.2.22 (from the same mirror). Can you upgrade the Apache version?
