The video has to be postage stamp sized to view polls.

Polls should be moved to the same location as the replies box. (bottom half of the chat)

The user agent for IE11 on Windows 8.1 is:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko

I looked into this and Microsoft indeed changed the format of their user-agent string in IE 11, such that our sniffer no longer picks up on it. I'll update the client to recognize it as a supported browser.

Excellent, thanks.

It seems odd to simply block a browser based on its user agent, rather than letting the user find out if chat works or not.

I don't use the default user agent in Firefox for privacy reasons, for example. (IE11 is using the default settings though)

Since you're still using Flash for video, IE11 is the only option on my Windows 8.1 PC. (I'd rather be using Firefox)

Firefox has supported playing H.264 video in HTML5 for around a year now, although I guess that doesn't help for streams. (I think?)

Yes, I normally use Firefox and watch HTML5 video, but the live streams are still flash-based so I have to use IE for them.

Wait, can't you use flash on Firefox on Windows 8.1? Why not?

IE11 has Flash built in. If I could remove it from the system, I would.

I certainly won't be installing additional plugins to have it in Firefox too.

Just loaded up the chat on my PC to be greeted with:

Sorry! Your browser is not one that we can support in chat any longer. Its either too old or your IT guy really did a job on it and its 'too safe' for us. We thought a lot about this and its just too darn hard to support your browser while we support newer browsers that play so much better with others on the world wide webs. We really hope you can upgrade. If Mel the IT guy riding high on his little power trip sez no then we suggest you find a job where the IT guy pushes out reasonable browsers. You can still watch the live stream so at least you have that going for you. Which is nice...

We strongly suggest Chrome We're totally cool with Safari We deal with Firefox Oh and there's Internet Explorer 10

Since you're still using Flash for video, IE11 is the only option on my Windows 8.1 PC. (I'd rather be using Firefox)

Just noticed this now with the Sunset Overdrive video being posted. Thanks!

Software like your web browser or a video player on a website is not the cause of this.

You either have a driver problem (make sure your system is completely up to date) or a hardware failure.

It may be that you only have problems when hardware accelerated video decoding is being used, but that's a symptom of the problem, not the cause.

The premium Bombcast RSS feed rarely ever works for me. I just checked my media player and the last time it was able to update was 02/11/14. I haven't listened to one since, as I won't put up with ads.

I haven't had this trouble with the other RSS feeds.

Thanks for the update Rorie.

Any chance of getting those other videos I mentioned put into their own categories/feeds?

Which other videos?

Bombin' in the AM

"Daily" Dota

Both are long-running series' which seem like they deserve their own categories/feeds.

Hopefully this will be addressed soon, as it's a real nuisance.

I don't want to use the all videos feed, because there are plenty of videos posted that I don't want to see.

It would also be nice if other videos such as "Bombin' in the A.M" and anything Dota related went in their own feeds too. My player ends up downloading gigs of videos that I'm never going to watch as a result of this.
