I have a problem with http authentication. If I try to open http://mytvheadendip:9981/playlist/channels in VLC, my login credentials aren't accepted. The input box keeps showing up. Same for the iOS app Tvhclient, which depends on VLC.

Is it a bug in tvheadend or is it something in my configuration? Accessing the web interface with the same credentials works just fine.

HTS Tvheadend 4.1.2389
Synology DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 7

In version you use, have this bug, with is fixed in new versions.

Playlist not contain user and password

I'm on 4.1.2409 now and the problem persists.

And the user has permissions for streaming?

Does it at least download the playlist? (vlc view playlist.)

#4 Updated by J H over 1 year ago

I added a screenshot of the user settings.

No playlist to be seen, just the input box with login credentials keeps popping up. The Tvhclient app does show the channels but, like I said before, no streaming possible.

Shoot, fixed! Under Streaming Basic should be added. Maybe a better description of this would be needed.

There is a help button. :)

Streaming : Allow/Disallow HTTP streaming.

Advanced streaming : Allow/Disallow advanced http streaming, e.g, direct service or mux links.

HTSP streaming : Allow/Disallow HTSP protocol streaming, e.g Kodi (via pvr.hts) or Movian.
