Streams requiring login will not work

Postby m33ts4k0z » 26 Feb 2017, 20:13

Hello,

I noticed that the streams that require a login and this is supplied like this: http://username:password@url/to/stream will not work.

Is there a way to make them work?

Thanks in advance

Such authentication format has been depricated, so it isn't supported

What kind of authentication is supported? Because the playlist I'm using is my own and I want to protect my links.

You may use authentication with GET-params:

Code: Select all

http://example_stream.com/?user=username&pass=password

Thanks for your answers and for this great app.

Since I'm using Tvheadend to create my streams, I don't think its possible to use parameters like that. Do you have any plans on implementing basic authentication in the future? Smart IPTV app works with basic authentication but it doesn't work as well as your app.

Keep up the great work!

EDIT: Just saw that this is deprecated. Interesting...

EDIT2: I just came up with a workaround to this... You can use basic authentication by using the external playlist feature. This will allow you to include the username and the password before the address and it will work in the app. Tvheadend will then create tickets that are valid for a couple of minutes so if your channels aren't working, just refresh the list within the app and it should fetch a new playlist with new tickets.

I've just checked this authentication on 2 LG models (NetCast and webOS), it works in both cases and now I really don't understand why it doesn't work for you.
What player do you use in Smart IPTV?

UPD.: I see LG TV in our profile's description but in another topic I've just noticed you write about Samsung TV. So what TV do you use?

I bought a new TV yesterday. The LG one is the one I use mainly and it uses WebOS 3.0.

Is there any way to troubleshoot this? I can even give you TeamViewer or anything if you want.

PS: I use the WebOS player in Smart IPTV.

Check if this link works on your TV

Code: Select all

http://test:12345@common.ss-iptv.com/secret/Sintel.2010.720p.mkv

You can also check subtitles in this video on your Samsung TV

This will not open on my LG. I can't test it on my Samsung atm.
