No, I didn't change it, but that sounds like a good idea.  Do you
think it would be incompatible with some servers (why didn't the
author just set it in the first place)?  If so, maybe you could make
it into a command line parameter and send me the patch?

Well, not many philosophy classes are available on video, so I had
generic internet sites (e.g. cnn) more in mind.  Haven't tried the
MIME types yet though.
