Reported by: niallkennedy Owned by: markjaquith

Component: Media Keywords: has-patch 3.2-early commit
Focuses: Cc:


WordPress currently maps Windows Media files to Internet media types not registered with IANA and not in official recommended guidelines by the filetype's creator, Microsoft.


Attached patch remaps Windows Media file name extensions to the official Microsoft recommended media types. The "reserved" file name extension wmx is removed.
