MP4 video files turn out to be M4V files after upload


I just realized - when I upload a vieeo file with the extension ".mp4" it results in a file that end with ".m4v". I know, both are essentially mpeg-4 video files, but still I'd prefer mp4. I found out, that the "EXPORT" variable in Video.php seems to map all "video/mp4" files to "m4v". Is there any option in the configs to override that or would I have to change that in the php-file?

Thanks you,


  • You'd have to change the default in app/lib/Plugins/Media/Video.php. It's not configurable.
