Serving mp4 files to PS3

Playstation 3's webbrowser seems to be quite picky on what it accepts to be downloadable. On net there was some hints to rename filenames as avi. But at least for me it downloaded them but at least my mp4 trailer was reported as corrupt. Perhaps there should be correct AVI container data present for that trick to work. However that made me think. Perhaps my local server was just missing correct MIME type. Googled a bit and it seems that mp4 files should be recognized as video/mp4. Reconfigured apache to recognize this and voilá! mp4 files downloads nicely from my home server. And as extension was correct PS3's video player played that mp4 trailer nicely.
