#3506 closed bug (fixed)

media player doesn't correctly recognize .ogg files

Description

If you attempt to open a .ogg with Media Player, it claims to not know what format it is. However, we have an ogg vorbis decoder/extractor in the media kit, and playfile does recognize/play them using that, so it'd seem there's an issue somewhere in media player's framework. I can provide sample files if needed.

More information: MediaPlayer appears to be rejecting them based off mimetype. The sniffer rules identify them as application/ogg by default, which is correct. Forcing the type to audio/vorbis makes MediaPlayer play them correctly. Note that according to http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/ , application/ogg, audio/ogg, audio/vorbis and video/ogg are all allowed/correct.

This one has been fixed, I believe. MediaPlayer now checks it's own MIME-types and the Ogg type has been added to the executable.
