Nginx HTML5 Video not showing

  • Posted January 18, 2014


I’m testing a html5 video for background and locally it shows right but in my droplet with Nginx doesn’t show at all…

You can see my test at “

The mime.types file is set correctly…

Using “curl -I”

It shows:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: nginx/1.1.19 Date: Sat, 18 Jan 2014 19:01:58 GMT Content-Type: video/mp4 Content-Length: 4359806 Last-Modified: Sat, 18 Jan 2014 18:37:37 GMT Connection: keep-alive Accept-Ranges: bytes

As you can see, the content-type shows video/mp4 as expected…

Anyway, I don’t know what else could be the reason…

Thank you in advance

Fixed! It was a simple file name issue (first letter capital). My bad!
