Add video/webm with extension webm to mime.types
Last modified: 2010-07-13 03:36:47 EDT
The new webm multimedia format needs its mime type set in mime.types.
is the correct type and extension: http://www.webmproject.org/code/specs/container/
This is important because the paranoid security measures in modern browsers won't allow them to play webm files which are served with the wrong mime-type. So the sooner fedora picks up the type the sooner it will be easy to make these files work on fedora running webservers.
Because it looks like an official and not a private ("x-") MIME type, I've been waiting for it to be properly registered in IANA. For some reason it hasn't appeared there yet. Have you by chance contacted the webm folks to ask why?
