Here's what someone else wrote on the issue:


Handle HTTP 1.1 byte range requests correctly

In order to support seeking and playing back regions of the media that aren't
yet downloaded, Gecko uses HTTP 1.1 byte-range requests to retrieve the media
from the seek target position. In addition, if you don't serve
X-Content-Duration headers, Gecko uses byte-range requests to seek to the end
of the media (assuming you serve the Content-Length header) in order to
determine the duration of the media.

Your server should accept the "Accept-Ranges: bytes" HTTP header if it can
accept byte-range requests. It must return "206: Partial content" to all byte
range requests; otherwise, Gecko can't be sure you actually support byte range

Your server must also return "206: Partial Content" for the request "Range:
bytes=0-" as well.
