Upload File Type Settings Plugin

Description

By default, WordPress only allows a very limited set of file types to be uploaded. This set is defined by a so called
“white list”. What’s not on the white list can’t be uploaded.

This plugin allows you to extend this white list through a settings page.

Additionally it comes with a wide range of file types that are enabled automatically, like audio files (ac3, mp4, …)
and video files (avi, mkv, …).
