Can I use a * wild card in a media query?

Well, I guess we'll see if there are any "true geeks" workin' the holidays. :)

I've developed a simple webpage. Basically it is a fixed bg image with a video player that you can scroll down to (which actually pulls it up to center over the bg image). On smaller devices (primarily smart phones), I only load the video player with a solid black bg - that is, no bg image.

I've used media queries to load appropriate bg images on different larger devices based on 3 different aspect ratios . . . the ones that seem to be the most common in "the computing world." (16:10, 16:9, and 4:3). My question is, can I use a "device-aspect-ratio: *" query to load a generic bg of some sort for all other aspect ratios?
Is that how I would express it, by just putting an * where I would normally put say 16/9 or whatever?

Just specify a default background image before anything else in the "cascade".

Example:

body {
    background-image: url(...)
}


Then cover all the exceptions.

Sounds good. I'll try that and get back with you. I'm getting ready to post another question maybe you can help me with. Has to do with Firefox (testing on Android tablet) not interpreting my stylesheet, media query or both.
