v2 Upload, fails with "unknown file type"

I'm attempting an upload via http://upload.smugmug.com, using OAuth. My POST headers look like this

X-Smug-AlbumUri - /api/v2/album/xxxxx
X-Smug-ResponseType - JSON
X-Smug-Version - v2
Content-Type - image/jpeg

My form data has the file contents. However, I always get this as my response -
    "stat": "fail",
    "method": "smugmug.images.upload",
    "code": 64,
    "message": "unknown file type"

I'm not entirely sure why I'm getting that... any inputs on what's happening here would be appreciated.

    The error message you are seeing means that the file is not recognized as a valid image file in a supported format. Are you having this problem with one particular image, or every image?

    It was every image. On further investigation, I realised that it was because my message body was multi-part form data. Once I changed it to just the binary, it worked flawlessly.
