By "flash streaming" they mean "flash video streaming" (flv files).
It's used for video.

You don't need anything special to do .flv streaming. The only thing
that the LightHTTPD module does is allow you to start at an arbitrary
key frame in the video. YouTube doesn't even have this feature yet,
but Google Video does. It's not really that big of a deal.
