MimeSlapper is a workaround for the confusing apache mime-type file headers, in the case of mp3 files, where a "standardized" mime type has not yet been widely accepted. It allows you to configure via a hard variable, or via a specialized url tag, which mime-type header you'd like to send to the users browser, in order to successfully play mp3 files from url links. This is also a good workaround for servers which have no mime-type headers set for mp3 files, because of this lack of standard, as well as for those webmasters who may need additional mime-type headers sent with select mp3 files. This script is intended to be a quick fix, and not to become a substitute for proper apache configuration. MimeSlapper would be suitable to deal with other apache mime-type difficulties as well, by changing the mime-types in the script.
