You don't need an extension in this particular case. What your actual
problem is, I don't know.

You WILL need a .ogg extension once you're actually up and running, though.
This is not a restriction in the server, but due to crappy clients. A number
of clients will try to decode any stream as mp3, so the vorbis plugins 
override this for things ending with ".ogg". It's a bad solution, but it's
the way things are for now.
