The mimetypes library cannot detect mime of mka files. It returns None instead of audio.

mp3 and mkv are working. Only mka is not working.

mkv (matroska) is not registered with IANA here: http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/media-types.xhtml

Therefore according to the comment in mimetypes.py, it should not be added.

Also note that .mkv is also not in mimetypes.py, so it's being loaded from your system's mime types, so if you want .mka to work as well, make sure it's registered on your system rather than in Python's mimetypes.py .

I will close this as not a bug, please comment here if you think it should stay open.
