Streaming videos with php is silly, so recommended approach is
"Don't do that".

First of all, try removing "internal", as it will prevent handling

If you don't understand how requests are handled in your config,
it's probably good idea to throw it away and start with something
simple without regex locations, rewrites, if's and so on.

Just a note: it's not forum, it's a mailing list.
