| I'm setting up a media server and would like to use varnish for caching some of the heavily requested medias (mp3, mp4 ... ).
| I've a few questions regarding media broadcasting with varnish.
| mp3: progressive download is used in order to read mp3 from the webpages, is it foreseen to have a function to would allow providing the media before it gets completely retrieved by varnish from the backend ?

This is probably going into 3.0

| mp4: how is handled Accept-range field in the header, does varnish supports it ?

In 2.0, it's not supported.  In 2.1, you can turn on Range support using
a parameter.
