Hi, I'm trying to watch Dave (https://uktvplay.co.uk/watch-live/dave) through the Samsung Internet Browser but the site is asking me to use another browser, say that the Samsung browser isn't supported...


Just wondering if it is possible to spoof the user agent somehow to the site... 

Simply would be nice 👍

My own advice would be to use Chrome for this rather than trying to mess about with settings that may impact on other things you use SI for.

@Franky616 As far as I am aware Samsung 's Browser is the only one that is directly supported on the TV,  would be workaround with Chromecast https://www.digitaltrends.com/home-theater/what-is-the-samsung-smart-tv-web-browser/  There are limitations with Samsung's Browser  ,flash is not supported  and  may also be issues with HTML5.   The apps are designed for videos and actually UK Tv Play (including Dave) is available via the App store but not be live content mind you.

 

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

Used URL:    internet://debug/ 


Settings - at the bottom of Settings will be debug settings...


Used a custom UA string...



Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/51.0.2704.103 Safari/537.36



Kept a copy of the old one...



Hope I'm not in for a fall...

My old string comes back but I have got in a couple of times so far 🙃


Needed to delete history... also...

Am hoping that the problem is just a CSS problem, as the phone is very new, and that the web-dev just needs to update...

Is there not just a UKTV app you could use?

I can do that... but for some reason I like the Samsung Internet widget, and am seeing how many channels from freeview I can get to work without adding apps for them... as I may keep adding... I don't watch them, but if I ever needed them for some reason, it would be nice to have them to hand...

Cool setup.

You could tweet them or something and see if they have a beta page or old page that works? Or even see if they're working on the functionality.

I feel like they just have a simple list for compatibility, as Samsung Browser is based on Chromium, so should be compatible with anything that works with Chrome.

I just had a look at their contact us page... but lost my bottle I think... have done a bit of Web design so I'm thinking that a media quary fix for the new s24 ultra may be figured out soon...

The custom UA string hack too just got me excited 😊
