  1. But `express.static()` supports ranged requests out of the box.

    Looks like all you needed was a middleware that rejects non-ranged requests, although that detail seems a bit questionable, as not all browsers use ranged requests to play video.

    (If this was intended as just an exercise, the article probably should explain that.)

  2. Not sure but I I think that if you put a `return` under `res.status(400).send(“Requires Range header”);` you can avoid this error that I get“`Cannot read properties of undefined (reading ‘replace’)
    Error [ERR_HTTP_HEADERS_SENT]: Cannot set headers after they are sent to the client“` when I try to access directly `/video`

  3. i have try but in mobile client it is not work that use video to receive stream, Is any body else face the same issue like me

  4. Is there a way to stream a camera link (cctv) or network stream (droidcam) instead of a fixed video.

  5. I would like to serve a 10 second .mp4 video, and after the stream completes, I would like to redirect to a static html page. Problem I get is that when video completes, I can’t figure out how to then serve the .html file. I’m trying to do this with the Express package. Is there a way for one node.js file server to serve a .mp4 file then an .html file?

    1. Yes you can use event emitter and emit the ‘end’ event where you can redirect the user to html file.
