The user agent is the wrong way to check for support. Arora supports
different codecs based on the platform. (It uses QtWebKit which uses Phonon
which uses the platform's multimedia support. On Fedora, it will only
support Ogg and other patent/royalty-free codecs out of the box, on O$ X,
only MPEG4 and QuickTime stuff, on Window$, whatever M$ ships. Any other
codecs have to be installed by the user.)
