    Really? I wonder if something can be done using the general.useragent.override command in about:config. Then again, it's not the Firefox version you're trying to spoof. It's the OS.

    Hmmmm, can't figure that one out.

    Try using a user agent switcher to make it think youre using chrome.

    I assume yourecorded it in 360p so theres no way to fix that. Atleast HD works on most videos now.
