Reading the reviews of the BBC Media Player on Google Play, one user said that since Chrome supports HTML5, he had managed to persuade the BBC iPlayer website to play him streams meant for iPad/iPhone devices by spoofing an IOS user agent string on his Nexus 7.
How might I go about getting the same thing to work myself?
I have looked at How can I change the user agent for the stock browser? and Method to change browser User Agent based on site but both seem to concentrate on the Dolphin browser. Also, please mention if a solution will require me to root my Nexus-7.
Incidentally, I also tried using Phoney with Firefox, but although Firefox supports HTML5 and the iPlayer website shows pages without either install flash or use external app messages, it still won't play the streams (it just sits swirling its progress wheel), hence looking for a solution for Chrome.
