Thank you Igor for the information :)

My soloution has become this.

location ^~/media/files/ {
add_header X-Location-Order First;

location ~ \.mp4$ {
add_header X-Location-MP4 Served-from-MP4-location;
}

location ~* \.(ico|png|jpg|jpeg|gif|flv|mp4|avi|m4v|mov|divx|webm|ogg|mp3|mpeg|mpg|swf|css|js)$ {
add_header X-Location-Order Second;
}

}

Super appreciate the help from everyone and info now I know what to do and reflect upon in future :)
