Description

In the ngx_http_mp4_module docs, there is a link to a page that contained instructions for preparing an original file for pseudo-streaming. The page that this link points to no longer exists. The link should be updated with a valid target or removed.

Page containing broken link:
https://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_mp4_module.html

Thanks, indeed the page at http://flowplayer.org/plugins/streaming/pseudostreaming.html#prepare is no longer available. It used to contain information on how to relocate metadata to the beginning of an mp4 file, a copy can be obtained in Web Archive. Removing the list is probably good enough.

Seems that there is a similar link on the new flowplayer website:
https://flowplayer.com/help/videos/preparing-videos#recommendedcontainermp4

From there, there's a link to moov atom relocation tools on flowplayer github:
https://github.com/flowplayer/flowplayer/wiki/7.1.1-video-file-correction

So the dead link was updated to the flowplayer github link:
http://hg.nginx.org/nginx.org/rev/bcdb13e1e8c6
