I would like to know what the mime-type is for a power point file.
Question

I can download an excel file that I uploaded and want to do the same for a power point file, but cant seem to locate the mime-type.

The full list is:

.ppt      application/vnd.ms-powerpoint
.pot      application/vnd.ms-powerpoint
.pps      application/vnd.ms-powerpoint
.ppa      application/vnd.ms-powerpoint

.pptx     application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation
.potx     application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.template
.ppsx     application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.slideshow

There are two mime types for powerpoint


application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.pr = for file with extension pptx

application/vnd.ms-powerpoint = for file with extension ppt
