instal Nginx

Andrew SB, thanks for your help! <br>I solve my issue with this directive: <br>send_timeout 100m; <br>this keeps connection for 100 minutes when a client retrieves a video file.

Could you post a sample of header? <br> <br>This bug report in Chrome explains why the problem happens there but not with Firefox. Firefox simply ignores it when the Content-Length header reports something different than the actual length. <br> <br>https://codereview.chromium.org/8496016 <br> <br>How about setting “proxy_buffering off;” ? <br> <br>This question over on ServerFault might help point you in the right direction: <br> <br>http://serverfault.com/questions/482875/nginx-removes-content-length-header-for-chunked-content
