Default [Feature Request] Change HTTP User-Agent

Please, change the HTTP User-Agent to something less malware-like than a space.
MX Player would be fine or maybe just Linux/Android for some obscurity.
This could be easily done and it would prevent us getting blocked by some sites/CDNs and even false IDS alerts.

MX Player uses Linux/Android style and MX Player/<version> style user agent.
But ads network may use different value. I will check it out.

I don't think it's the ads network:

Code:
GET./480p/{file}.mp4.HTTP/1.1
.User-Agent:.
.Accept:.*/*
.Range:.bytes=36151293-
.Connection:.close
.Host:.{domain}
.Icy-MetaData:.1
I tap on a video link in the browser and open it in MX Player, so I'm not starting anything directly.
Also I don't think Chrome proxies the request (like ES File Exp.) but even if it does it would use it's own UA.
Thanks.

This might be fixed on latest test build:
