I still think it goes without saying that you will have to 
test the result of above command to find out if it still 
works or not (if the input file is mov there is a high 
chance that the command breaks the file). If it does not 
work, try the following before cutting the sample:
$ make tools/qt-faststart
$ tools/qt-faststart input output

Then please provide the sample!

It really doesn't matter if you report the problem 
here or on trac (trac is slightly preferred), neither 
does it matter where you upload the sample, I even 
accept megashit (although most developers do not).

I know that it makes things more difficult that our 
upload server is currently not working, there is 
nothing we can do about it atm.

Thank you for reporting problems, this is one of the 
most important things users can do!
