  Great :)

  Add the line to /etc/gnump3d/mime.types instead, that is the file the
 server reads when it starts up.

   .. looks good.

  This is a simple matter of adding one line to the file

  (Wherever it is installed upon your system.  Run "locate" to
 find it?)

  Near the top you'll see lines which specify whch files are considered
 audio ones.  (This will be moved into a configuration file soon.)

  Simply add a new entry to have .ape files recognised.  For reference
 here is what the section looks like:

#  Suffixes of files which are considered audio filetypes
$AUDIO_SUFFIXES{ "669" }  = 1;
$AUDIO_SUFFIXES{ "aac" }  = 1;
$AUDIO_SUFFIXES{ "m4a" }  = 1;
$AUDIO_SUFFIXES{ "dsm" }  = 1;
$AUDIO_SUFFIXES{ "far" }  = 1;

  Add the following line there, and restart the server:

$AUDIO_SUFFIXES{ "ape" } = 1;

  I hope the bit above helps.  You've certainly been creative in
 trying things, so even if it didn't I'm sure we can fix it for you.
