We've had a couple reports that embedded tweets can't be viewed using IE 10/11. There are still corporate networks that use it. It turns out the problem is the user agent. Is there a way incorporate this fix into the addon?

@Buffaloed I don't know, I've just published an update with a similar workaround but I don't have a windows machine to try it out. If you have an IE 10/11 available, check it out (clear your browser cache to make sure you get the latest version) and please report whether it changes anything.

I don't have high hopes for it though, because it looks like Twitter don't support embedding on IE anymore.

It doesn't work with the latest version of the addon. The embed will show when the user agent string in the emulation setting in developer tools.

I tried overriding the user agent in JavaScript to that one but it doesn't seem to help. As far as I can tell, Twitter's widget code creates an iframe for the tweet but that iframe checks the user agent again and ignores IE. Since this is in a context I don't have access to, I can't override that user agent. When you change your user agent in your browser, it changes it in all contexts and that's why it works that way.

Can Spreaker and/or Mixir be added to the media sites? Thanks!

@Buffaloed I'm going to look into those later this week. I like podcast sites but there are lots of them and each new site adds to the maintenance/upkeep cost of the add-on so I'm trying to focus on those that are trending.
