>             Project: Libcloud
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Storage
>    Affects Versions: 0.13.2
>            Reporter: Michael Farrell

> Whenever uploading a file using libcloud, it will throw an exception if there is no content-type
specified and it cannot guess the content-type from the file extension.
> Somewhere along the line of django-randomfilenamestorage, django-storages and libcloud
(I suspect in django-storages), the content-type of the file will be stripped if the browser
passes a content-type on an uploaded file of application/octet-stream.
> When this lands in libcloud.storage.base.StorageDriver._upload_object, libcloud attempts
to guess the file's content-type from it's extension if none is supplied.  When this fails,
an AttributeError is raised.
> Instead of throwing an exception, why not send the content-type of unknown bytestreams:
application/octet-stream.
> Patch is incoming.
