Hi I am trying to write a html5 web iphone app.

The app looks on a remote server for video files and then plays them. Trouble is although bog standard mp4 files they have a strange file extension.

I can't change the mime settings on iphone or server, can't rename the videos.

Using javascript / jquery is there any way over overriding the the mime setting

If not is their a custom video player (jquery) that will ignore the mime setting

If not can you create an object link to the file (with the correct mime type) and pass this to the video tag ?
