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.
