As it was already said, flv module works only with local files.

If you really need to store your files in S3 and want flv 
pseudo-streaming to work, you may try instead.

Please note that every single request will download full file to 
your nginx host, and non-needed parts (i.e. skipped by streaming) 
will be thrown away.  It's probably a good idea to configure 
proxy_cache to avoid such excessive downloads.
