[Mediawiki-l] wmv video upload works for small, not big files. Large mp3's or swf files do work.

This is what's happening in MimeMagic.php:
mime_content_type($file) returns text/plain for wmv files.

If I instead use the following -- it returns 'application/octet-stream'
(still wrong--but it allows the upload)

# in MimeMagic.php
$f = escapeshellarg($file);
$m = trim ('file -bi $f');

How can I get mime_content_type() to return the right type? Somehow I need
to edit magic.mime, I suspect.
