RFE: add mimetype for Matroska
Last modified: 2013-10-15 02:43:58 EDT
Description of problem:
/etc/mime.types doesn't have Matroska MIME types.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. grep -i matroska /etc/mime.types
Some MIME types.
Quoting from http://matroska.org/technical/specs/notes.html#MIME
There is no IETF endorsed MIME type for Matroska files. But you can use the ones we have defined on our web server :
.mka : Matroska audio audio/x-matroska
.mkv : Matroska video video/x-matroska
.mk3d : Matroska 3D video video/x-matroska-3d
Adding private types like these is usually frowned upon, but done upstream anyway.
