URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH

Added by Cleiton Oppenheimer 3 months ago

Hello everyone.

I have a IPTV Server which needs user and password to be embedded in the URL.

The problem is that I have a Symbol in the password. After some research, I found that I could substitute the symbol '#' to '%23' and it will pass with the URL.

Testing it with Chrome and VLC worked and I was finally able to play the IPTV stream

When I import it as Automatic IPTV Network, it will get the 401 Error. For some reason the ULR field inside TVH is not recognizing the user/pass in the URL. When I saved the content of the IPTV list into a file and loaded it with "file:///" as the URL, TVH was able to load the muxes, but the muxes will not find any service, since they have the user/pass with the URL.

I don't know what else could I try here. Maybe any kind of translating inside linux, so that I point it to a local URL, for example http://localhost/channel1 and it gets translated to http://user:password%[email protected]:9981/stream/channelid/1149999023?ticket=4A36A68AC305E9FB501779AB47997D4DC0343CA7&profile=pass

Any hint with this?

By the way, I'm using build 4.3-1967~geb59284b8

Thanks

Would there be another way to user credentials in the URL that might accept the symbol? Something like [email protected] [email protected] (security is not a concern here, since everything runs over VPNs).

I have just tried 02 other IPTV sources from the same server:
1- Without user/password everything works normal
2- User/Pass without any special character also works normal

So the issue really is really related with TVH reading the symbol in the string.

Unfortunately, it's out of my reach to get other user/password (without special character) for this IPTV.

What server is one you take playlist?

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by Cleiton Oppenheimer 3 months ago

It's a "black box" running an old and modified Version of TVH.

I am able to access TVH WebPage of the server and perform some modifications. But, most of them are reset to "factory" once a day. The box runs a script for this "recovery" (I believe). I am able to set */* user and password and it works. Also I was able to create user/pass = test/test and it also works.

The point is, I want a workaround for not having to create user/password everyday. Unfortunately the box is not accessible through SSH/Telnet and the HDMI output is broken so that I could handle the "recovery script" or create another script that would add user/password to TVH automatically scheduled.

The box is able to provide IPTV, but its default user/password (which does not get lost everyday) contain special character. So it is preventing me to import it into another TVH which is my main server (and I can do any kind of trick, if necessary).

Add ip access restriction to star user and get playlist as "http://tvh:9981/playlist/channels"

Build normal vesion for this "black box"

post details of build "mostrar detalhes"

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by Cleiton Oppenheimer 3 months ago

Will this playlist work later when the star user and pw is no longer available in the box? As I described, unfortunately the box "resets" some settings once a day, and the user/password is one of the settings that are erased every day.

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by saen acro 3 months ago

Is this some Android box?

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by Cleiton Oppenheimer 3 months ago

Indeed, but since HDMI is "burned" there is nothing that can be changed "blindly".

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by saen acro 3 months ago

SSH access or anything

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by Cleiton Oppenheimer 3 months ago

SSH would be possible after installing some tricks in Android. Since no video output is working, there is nothing I can do.

Thinking about TVH, is there any kind of URL that can be used to create username and password? If it is possible, I can work with a script running outside the box, to "create" a new username/password everyday. Example:

http://ip.tvh:port/createusername=test/createpassword=test

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by saen acro 3 months ago

You need to use API https://github.com/dave-p/TVH-API-docs
Do you try to activate SAT>IP server, and manage it from second TVH as client?

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by Cleiton Oppenheimer 3 months ago

I will start reading API. Seems like to be possible to do something there

/api/serverinfo shows:

{"sw_version":"0.0.0~unknown","api_version":18,"name":"Tvheadend","capabilities":["caclient","tvadapters","satip_client","satip_server","trace","libav"]}

I am already using SAT>IP to use the DVB channels and it is working very well.

The point of using IPTV, is that I'm trying to use also the IPTV channels provided with the box (that I don't have a clue about the source, but are being served well by this android box and TVH).

Any hint regarding adding username/password through the API?

This seems to be what I should use:
https://github.com/dave-p/TVH-API-docs/wiki/Access

Unfortunately I'm not an expert on it...

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by saen acro 3 months ago

Try SAT>IP, no users no passwords.

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by Cleiton Oppenheimer 3 months ago

SAT>IP works only with "real tuners" (see picture). I am already using the DVB-S2 tuner as SAT>IP and it is working.

The IPTV content is not forwarded as SAT>IP. These are the content that I'm trying to export.

I'm trying to learn about the API... Something like:
curl --data 'enabled=true&username=test&password=test' 'http://admin::9981/api/passwd/entry/create'

But no success so far.

RE: URL problems when importing IPTV to TVH - Added by Cleiton Oppenheimer 3 months ago

@saen acro

Thanks for pointing me to API.

I successfully could create new user and password using it. And now, I plan to add it to a bash script in other machine that will add user/password every 24 hours.

For everyone that might need this:

curl --data 'conf={"enabled": true,"username":"*","streaming":true}' 'http://user:[email protected]:port/api/access/entry/create'

curl --data 'conf={"username":"*","password":""}' 'http://user:[email protected]:port/api/passwd/entry/create'

Thanks

It is nice to hear that someone is reading and not waiting for everything to be served on a silver plate.
