Some moderators asked me how they could embed some file types like mpg or something like that so that the file is shown/played when the user klicks it. We don't know how to make that the browser opens the file directly instead of showing the dialog to download the file. Clear enough what I mean?

You add the file type to the mime list with an appropriate mime. If you do it correctly and the browser knows how to handle this mime type it will play/display/download etc... the file.

The point of problem is that the mime-types for mpg/mpeg is already inserted. Or are the standard types just dummys?

These are the mime types Apache would normally send when it encounters an mpeg file that it is about to send to the browser.
