# curl -I http://dis-dot-dat.net/music/alltehtriptest.ogg

You have to tell your apache server to deliver a content type of
application/ogg for Ogg Vorbis files.

echo "application/ogg ogg" >> /etc/mime.types and restart apache.

To compare...

curl -I http://radio.opensrc.org/Merelte_Tuulee__Vesuris_Kmoeno_Mix.ogg
