So pseudo code for a file named "/videoplay.php":

header("Content-type etc...")

if(isset($_GET['start'])) {
   $start = intval($_GET['start']);
   header("X-Accel-Redirect: /path/to/file.flv?start=$start");
} else {
   header("X-Accel-Redirect: /path/to/file.flv");

and in nginx.conf, I could have:

location /videoplay.php {

would this work together?
