Can’t publish HTML5 video

Mysterious. I can’t publish Ogg video using the HTML5 video tag, and I don’t know why. Observe (in Firefox 3.5, or I think beta Opera supports it):

My video (doesn’t work)

<video controls src="http://www.kryogenix.org/random/couch-firefox-bookmarks-initial.ogv" type="video/ogg">  
Your browser does not support the video element.</video>

### Mozilla’s video (does work)

What am I doing wrong? Is the mysterious `X-Pad` header something to do with it? **Update:** apparently it works for everyone but me, so I assume Firefox has cached the wrong content type somewhere (it was text/plain at first, oops).
