Forward single request to upstream server via proxy_store !!

But i cannot switch with proxy_cache because we're mirroring the mp4 files
for random seeking using mp4 module and proxy_cache doesn't support random
seeking. Is there a way i can use bash script with proxy_store ? I want the
following logic to prevent duplicate downloads :-
1st user :-
client (request the test.mp4) --> nginx (file not existed) --> check if
tmp.txt not existed --> create tmp.txt --> download the test.mp4 from
origin --> remove tmp.txt
2nd user requesting the same test.mp4 :-
client (request test.mp4) --> nginx (file not existed) --> tmp.txt already
existed (which means nginx already downloading the file) --> redirect user
towards the origin server(keep redirecting users as long as tmp.txt not
3rd user requesting the same test.mp4 :-
client (request test.mp4) --> nginx(file existed) --> serve from the cache.
SO tmp.txt plays the main role here and prevent the subsequent requests for
the same file but i have no idea how to implement it with nginx. Only if
someone point me towards right direction. :(
