I should have mentioned that I am trying this on a test server, behind a firewall so could not provide a direct example. Here's what wget says:
dspace:~> wget --server-response http://libtest-1.willamette.edu/xmlui/bitstream/handle/10177/62/Knopf.mp4?sequence=1

Saving to: “Knopf.mp4?sequence=1.1”
which looks, to my eye, similar to the vetch response.
Keith, thanks for the heads up about the xmlui.content_disposition_threshold . I was unaware of that setting. I tried setting it to 0 and when that didn't seem to have any effect to -1, but still no luck. I'll be interested to hear how the upgrade to 3.2 works out. It would be lovely if the modifications to support <video> could become part of the code.
