I have to put the problem here to ask for help:

Upload a ogv file to alfresco, the alfresco url is, if i open the link directly, it will prompt download both in firefox and chrome.
but if I copy this ogv file to same tomcat webapps/test/, will play normally.
I aslo test avi file, the alfresco url can play normally.

If the html 5 video tag use the above alfresco url,
    <video width="640" height="264" controls="controls" preload="auto" >
   <source src="" type='video/ogg; codecs="theora, vorbis"' />
the firefox can't play, but chrome can play;
if the source src is, then firefox can play again !

So my question is:
How can I open alresco ogv file directly in browser, no prompt download.
why use alfresco url for video tag can't play?

Environment: firefox 3.6.8, chrome 5.0, Ubuntu 9.1.

Thanks in advance.
