[MPlayer-users] mime-type of the installed MPlayer executable?

I run the svn MPlayer on both Slackware and Ubuntu and in both cases
the mime-type of the installed executable seems a little odd:

andrew at skamandros~$ file --mime-type -b /usr/bin/mplayer

where I would expect to see application/x-executable. Could possibly
be a local installation issue, in which case my apologies for wasting
time here, but I would be curious to see what is the normally expected
mime-type registered by others for the installed svn MPlayer
executable on their system.

Thanks for anybody who can look at this,
