application/binary type returned for media files

application/binary type returned for media files

Hi, I am using gettemporarylink API to obtain url to the file that can be later played. That url when requested itself, returns wrong Content-Type header for media files. For example audio file with m4a extension now has Content-Type response header set to “application/binary” instead of “audio/mp4” or “audio/mpeg”. Such behaviour has started in the last 24 hours and breaks our entire workflow. No changes were made on our side and it used to work before. Could you please look into this?

We've reverted to the previous behavior for newly returned links. I can't guarantee what the exact behavior will be long-term, but I'll follow up once I have an update on that.
