Video files truncated

I was reported some issues regarding videos playback. MP4 videos are delivered by nginx. Some clients are complaining because videos stop after 5 seconds. Our videos are at least 50s long. I cannot reproduce this issue even with an old PC with 3G connection (slow bandwith).

I guess the video stops because the connection is closed by the server but I do not understand why. When checking my configuration, I found a send_timeout 5; Can this be in cause?
Thks a lot
