Description Daniel R. Tobias 2005-08-06 22:53:40 UTC
When you select a link in Wikipedia to an Ogg Vorbis sound file (or other Ogg
data) that has been uploaded, the resulting data is served with HTTP headers
giving its content-type as "application/octetstream".  This is not the proper
MIME type for this data format, which is "application/ogg" according to the
Wikipedia entry on [[Ogg]].  In fact, "application/octetstream" isn't even a
proper MIME type at all, since the correct type for "unspecified binary data" is
"application/octet-stream", with a dash.

This was fixed a couple days ago. Cached items may retain the incorrect type temporarily.
