Well ideally gstreamer would give us a list of mime types, but that seems unlikely judging from the comments I've found at [1].  Probably mapping between capabilities and mime types is what we have to do. :/  (And a hardcoded list of guesses is not really so much less hacky.)

Anything else we can do to make the videos play? We could hardcode a hack for just MP4 and MP3, I suppose. Or we could have separate hardcoded lists of mime types for the codecs provided by the different gst-plugins packages, and try to detect which packages are installed. These don't seem better to me....
