Just a side note.  Ogg Theora videos have the MIME type: application/ogg

It would be nice if it was: video/ogg  But that is NOT registered.  Nor have
I heard any plans to register it (or even encourage people to use it without
registering it).  (Although alot of people would prefer it.)

So video/* would NOT get all video data formats.

See ya
