FLV cache headers?

Can FLV files be cached to the browser?  I'm passing the "expires max" tag
which looks like its working as this is the response header:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx/1.1.12
Date: Thu, 29 Dec 2011 19:13:09 GMT
Content-Type: video/x-flv
Content-Length: 8919417
Last-Modified: Thu, 29 Dec 2011 04:13:19 GMT
Connection: keep-alive
Expires: Thu, 31 Dec 2037 23:55:55 GMT
Cache-Control: max-age=315360000
Accept-Ranges: bytes

but when I look in Firebug, there's no cache header and reloading the
page, well, reloads the file.

Can anyone explain? are FLV files not cacheable by browsers as they
are considered streams?
