Fix self hosted ogg and webm videos not loading in Firefox html5 tags

If your videos are not loading in Firefox with a 206 Partial Content check the Content Type returned in the response header for the file. If it reads text/plain your server isn’t passing the MIME type of the video. You should be able to create a .htaccess file in your video directory to fill in the missing MIME types. For example include this:

AddType video/ogg ogg
AddType video/webm webm

    Mark this is awesome, but when I select Export:Movie to WebM, I get an error message: “Export Failed. (-206)”
