How do I change "File Type" on upload to Ubuntu One Cloud Storage. One avi file comes up as "video/x-msvideo" and the other comes up as "video/avi" I would like them to both be the same.

As @dobey said, Are they encoded with different codecs? – Lucio Dec 15 '12 at 19:38

I'm not sure what you're asking exactly, but Ubuntu One doesn't really know anything about the MIME types. Do the files have different extensions? Are they encoded with different codecs?

No, they are both .avi. – user114882 Dec 15 '12 at 20:56
