You shouldn't try to add Accept-Ranges header manually. It will
be added automatically when nginx supports range requests to the
resource in question.

Range requests to responses of mp4 module are supported starting
at 1.5.13 (previously, range requests was supported only for files
returned without modifications).

If it doesn't work for you, it's probably time to upgrade.

This is just wrong, as it prevents nginx from returning a
requested resource and unconditionally returns 206 response with
an empty response body.

Again, you shouldn't try to return 206 manually. The 206 response
code is set automatically when a requested range is returned
(instead of the full response).
