@itpp thanks for replying.

So on easy note, i would have to assign those machines the preferred dns
and use rsync on regular basis in order to make identical data  between
local caching machines and main front end content servers ?

What if a client request a video which is not in local caching server ?
Does nginx has the configuration for it to check the files locally and then
forward the request to main content servers if requested file is not cached
locally ?

I need a bit of guidance in order to configure nginx this way.
