Mimetype mappingΒΆ

ownCloud allows administrators to specify the mapping of a file extension to a mimetype. For example files ending in mp3 map to audio/mpeg. Which then in turn allows ownCloud to show the audio icon.

By default ownCloud comes with mimetypemapping.dist.json. This is a simple json array. Administrators should not update this file as it will get replaced on upgrades of ownCloud. Instead the file mimetypemapping.json should be created and modified, this file has precedence over the shipped file.
