Resolving mimetype in Sitecore

Now here is a small nifty trick from the depths of Sitecore. Sitecore contains a /App_Config/MimeTypes.config containing mimetypes for almost every extension possible. To resolve the mimetype for an extension you can use the Sitecore.Resources.Media.MimeResolver:

using Sitecore.Resources.Media;

private string ResolveMimeType(string extension)
  MimeResolver resolver = new MimeResolver();
  return resolver.GetMimeType(extension);
