Certain web streaming video plugins misidentify Nightly in Metro mode
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/29.0.1547.76 Safari/537.36 Steps to reproduce: 1) Launch Nightly in Metro mode 2) Visit http://katiecouric.com/2013/09/13/robert-de-niro-michelle-pfeiffer-americas-got-talent/ Actual results: Embedded videos present an error - "The video you are trying to watch is using the HTTP Live Streaming protocol which is only supported in iOS devices." Expected results: Videos should play normally. Note that videos load normally when launching Nightly in desktop mode.
I can reproduce this issue on Win 8 32-bit, with the latest Nightly (build ID: 20131103030204) in Metro mode. However, I think this is expected since those videos use Flash, and Flash isn't supported yet in Metro mode.
