Hey, Thanks for that Andoni.
I thought that was what it was originally but I set up some tests and the mime-type returned
for the phone I was using was correct. 
It turns out it was more to do with the encoding of the file itself. I think I had gone a
bit hardcore, in the sense of trying to get the phones to play files with a v.high bit and
frame rates. Very useful message from the phone though!?
Thanks alot Andoni.

Have you looked at /conf/web.xml ?

In this file you have a list of file extentions and their associated mime
types. This tells the HTTP Server in Tomcat what MIME Type to associate with
them when they are being output.

I would recommend removing Apache from the process altogether while you are
having config problems. Set Tomcat's port to 80 from the default 8080 and
switch off Apache.

Hope that helps, keep writing if not.
