or is there more to it.

There is much more to it, as there is no unique standard for "audio/video streaming" and thus you cannot rely just on the Content-Type header. Unfortunately there are many different forms of streaming solutions, each using different methods and encodings, so it's hard to define a "fit all" filter. Sorry....

Anyway, your filter is a good start.
