site

:

location videos/ {
flv;
mp4;
mp4_buffer_size 4M;
mp4_max_buffer_size 10M;
limit_rate 260k;
limit_rate_after 3m;
#mp4_limit_rate_after 30s;}

Have you done “?start=0” first to read the metadata? From the manual:

http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_mp4_module.html

“To start playback, the player first needs to read metadata. This is
done by sending a special request with the start=0 argument.”
