Expand/Clarify your question a bit + likely someone can help.

For example, if you're simply serving videos, all you require is
to transcode as .mp4 files with a -bufsize:v set large enough to
only buffer a few seconds of video (based on your video's bitrate)...


You're done.

You may also require adding -movflags +faststart, although this seems
to be done by default now.
