mylifetime.com doesn't create video player on Firefox OS

:: Steps To Reproduce

There is plenty of JS sniffing here, for example: 

	if(aetn.videoplayer.runtime() != 'Flash' && aetn.videoplayer.runtime() != 'HTML5'){
		badFlashVersionErrorDisplay(container);


//custom runtime setup.
function tve_runtime() {
    //navigator.userAgent  navigator.platform  appVersion
    //only use HTML5 when it is iphone or ipad
    var value = navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase();
    if (value.indexOf("iphone") > -1 || value.indexOf("ipad") > -1)
        return "HTML5";
    else
        return "Flash";
}
function detect_tablet() {
    //navigator.userAgent  navigator.platform  appVersion
    var value = navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase();
    if (value.indexOf("iphone") > -1) {
        return "iphone";
	}
    else if (value.indexOf("ipad") > -1) {
        return "ipad";
	}
    else if (value.indexOf("android") > -1) {
        return "android";
	}	
	else {
	    return '';
	}
}

Also, there's stuff like this to push apps:

  if (navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf("android") > -1) {		
	watchNow = '<a onClick="javascript:try_to_open_google_app();" href="' + appURL + '">Watch Now</a>';
	var appstorefail = 'https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.aetn.lifetime.watch' + Drupal.settings.video_android_download_string;
  }

(Can't verify if the video player actually works from this country)

So I didn't get any answer to my email in December 2013. Let's try to find another way with human contacts.

When testing on Firefox OS 2.1, the video page gives a flashing page. items in the desktop version of the page just come and go in loop. 

The issue is not happening on iOS iPodTouch Safari and Android Firefox (receiving both the desktop content).

Testing from Japan is hard because the videos are not available outside of certain countries.

@Superjonbot seems to be really a bot more than superJon, so we will have to find another contact.

I still get the same message than hallvord.
All our contacts led to no answers so far.
I try to recontact the last person. Not sure we will get a successful answer.
