Can't delete mp4 timelapses and wrong filename displayed in notification of completion #1320

With the addition of the ability to view and download mp4's through a wrapper script it seems you can't delete them. Additionally the wrong file extension is used when displaying the rendering complete notification.

guysoft/OctoPi#184 wrapper script

What were you doing?

Testing time lapse mp4 rendering

What did you expect to happen?

Render out to mp4 and be able to delete / download mp4

What happened instead?

mp4 rendered fine, downloads work, deleting doesn't remove any files. Additionally even though mp4 is rendered the mpeg extension is still used in the notification of rendering completion. I suggest perhaps simply removing the extension all together in the notification popup since detecting the type of file is probably impossible when using the wrapper script.
