User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr; rv:1.9.2.13) Gecko/20101206 Ubuntu/10.10 (maverick) Firefox/3.6.13

Firefox can't play the Theora/Vorbis video put in the URL field.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit the URL put in the corresponding field.
Actual Results:  
Firefox displays a window suggesting to save locally the file or to open it with a local software.

Expected Results:  
Firefox should be able to play directly the video.

Also, we can visit the following webpage:

http://dev.streamnik.de/screencast.html

that has a "video" tag to present this video. The result is a big gray square with a X in the middle.

Note that I can play the video (from the URL or locally) with Totem 2.32.0 and GStreamer 0.10.30 on Ubuntu 10.10.

Other example: Firefox can't play the 4 Theora/Vorbis videos on the following web page:

http://dev.streamnik.de/80.html

but there's no problem with Totem.
The file is being served with an incorrect MIME type (text/plain).
