User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; sv-SE; rv:1.9.2.2) Gecko/20100316 Firefox/3.6.2 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

When trying to play a video with the html5 video tag the extension for a theora/vorbis file needs to be ogg, when file is renamed to .ogv, play fails and error code is MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED.

Actually the ogv file did play if it was served from localhost or within my Intranet. When I served the video from a external server the problem occurred.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Serve a theora/vorbis video with file extension ogv from a remote/slow web server.
2. Try to view video in browser
Actual Results:  
MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED is error code from video tag

Expected Results:  
Video plays

Can you please use the Live HTTP Headers extension to let us know what
Content-Encoding:
is given by the external server?

Oops, I meant Content-type, but both would be good.

Ok, I can try the Live HTTP Headers extension. But also I have example where it does not work:

And where it works:

I got these request/response headers:

The Content-Type returned by the server needs to be video/ogg and not Content-Type: application/octet-stream.

The problem is on the web server and not Firefox.
