Nginx and X-Accel-Redirect to serve Quicktime streaming prepared movies

Using Nginx + X-Accel_Redirect + Regular Quicktime movies works, but
the user needs to wait for the film to be fully downloaded to watch

Therefore I decided to prepare my movies with the Fast-Start option,
but the movies load barely a few bytes and take ages to play.

Do I need to adjust the content headers or do I need to move to flash
for streaming and using x-accel-redirect?
