         We're running a video streaming website with nginx for streaming
videos. The issue we're having is, whenever user try to stream any mp4 or
flv file from our site using chrome, IDM(Internet Download Manager) comes
between the browser and webserver and directly downloads that file and
doesn't player let stream that file.

We've found the following line in google inspect element tool:

204 Intercepted by the IDM Advanced Integration

Can someone guide me that how can i block those 204 intercept requests in
order to prevent IDM for bothering the player ? There are so many users
complaining for it. :(

You can also check the sample attach file regarding the issue.

Help would be highly appreciated.
