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.
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)
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...
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.
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.
