MPEG4 not Supported

So this goes back a few days ago when we were discussing this: What's br= oken is the mime type: bash-2.05a$ HEAD http://eric.blognews.com/makemedia0= 1.mp4 200 OK Content-Type: text/plain MP4 mime type documented here: http:= //www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc3640.txt The right mime type would be either v= ideo/mpeg or video/mpeg4-generic. The fix is in the config for your web se= rver.=A0 Create a file called .htaccess in your video directory and put thi= s in it: AddType video/mpeg4-generic mp4 So I tried this out and got inv= alid error messages from the server and then started poking around the supp= ort forum for my web host where I found this dated June 6,2004 I've notic= ed that HostRocket doesn't have ".mp4" or any mpeg 4 extension defined in t= heir server mime-types. Having asked about this, the response I received = was: "While mpeg4 is in use, it is not yet ubiquitous on the internet. In = the future, we may consider enabling it on our servers. However, the reason= mpeg4 is not in the system defined types is because it is considered by ot= hers who write the software we use to not be common." Does anyone else fi= nd this totally amusing and ridiculous at the same time? Here they are wi= th other mime-types such as ".latex" implemented, but they won't use a curr= ent standard because it's not wide-spread? Yet, the average web-surfer wil= l NEVER see something ".latex" unless... [View]

Don't know what to tell you about your webhost, but I've generally used the following line in mime.types for webservers that I have configured: video/quicktime qt mov mp4 Of course, this most likely forces the mp4 to play with QT, but that has generally been what I've wanted to do. -- Sean -- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- M.

I knew you were going to say that, and I agree with you in principle. However, I would guess that 95% of the MP4-capable clients out there are QT, so it was a pragmatic move. Do you know if video/mpeg4-generic works with QT? (It probably does if its in an RFC.) If you give me a URL, and it works with QT, I'll begin switching over my servers... -- Sean > > Don't know what to tell you about your webhost, but I've generally used the following line in mime.types for webservers that I have configured: >> >> video/quicktime qt mov mp4 >> >> Of course, this most likely forces the mp4 to play with QT, but that has generally been what I've wanted to do. > >Ack!

What do you think of hooking up one test mp4, then having people here open it and report what happened? (That's how we figured out mime types in webjay -- polling people to see what worked on average.) [View]
