You mean to say a user agent that looks like what I have shown above still is being identified as coming from a Linux machine? They must be using some other technology to determine the OS then.
Another thing to do could be try Windows build of Firefox in Wine?
As I said above ..... it came good when I used a user agent for Firefox ..... or at least good enough to show the Mplayer window even though it would not play .... and from that Window I was able to copy the URL and VLC followed through it to the actual stream which it played.
Hence, as far as I am concerned, my problem is solved ..... and maybe if I had a VLC plugin for Firefox it would play embedded ...... don't know as yet ......
Either way, I get to watch the video stream, despite the blocks .......
This is what I was
getting from most of the non-Linux user agents I tried ..... but all is good now
