You don't know what you have GET is an HTML page before receiving the 
answer from the server. What I'm saying is you should not get the 
resource mime type from the URL.

No, this is not true! index.html#t=1 will scroll to the element with 
id="t=1" iff index.html is an HTML document. It will certainly now if 
page.html is a video.
