url with passwords doesn't work for me

Hello,

I'm trying to access Hikvision NVR to get its camera's images. The URLs work in Indigo directly, but not through this plugin. I use the format:

http://username:password@nvrip/ISAPI/St ... 01/picture

This works when used in indigo in the refreshing image url controll, but I get a 401 with the plugin.

Any help appreciated.

Re: url with passwords doesn't work for me

Hello,

Ok I fixed my problem. The issue is that my NVR was expecting digest authentication and this plugin doesn't support it.

So there are two solutions, turn off digest authentication or modify the plugin. Sine, I think digest is a better choice, I modified the plugin.

I changed the request as follows:

r = requests.get(url, stream=True, timeout=100, auth=HTTPDigestAuth(parsed.username, parsed.password))

You still need to import the HTTPDigestAuth

from requests.auth import HTTPDigestAuth

Possibly the author could add support for couple most used authentication methods.

Thanks.

Just to confirm, this is a general URL download and not SecuritySpy, correct? I dont think SecuritySpy supports Digest.

Yes, this is the generic download from a Hikvision NVR. I have created my own plugin now to support the NVR directly. I didn't post it in the PluginStore, but if there is interest, I can. I'd just need to add some end user niceties such as version controll and better input checking.

Re: url with passwords doesn't work for me

Hello,

I have ended up just upgrading my plugin as it was easier then I expected.. Anyway, I think Its a good idea to include digest authentication.

I believe that in your plugin, you could just adjust line 153. What I've done to make it work is change the line to add the auth parameter:

r = requests.get(url, stream=True, timeout=100, auth=HTTPDigestAuth(self.securityspy_login, self.securityspy_pass))

Wow I'm really delinquent in getting this added, my apologies. I'll get it added in so that you don't have to keep modifying each time.

Re: url with passwords doesn't work for me

I had an issue when updating to Indigo 2023.2 and the latest version of the plug-in. The modification you made at line 152 makes it so that the credentials are included twice in the URL and lead to a 401 error.

I had to replace:
Code: Select all
         r = requests.get(url, stream=True, timeout=100, auth=HTTPDigestAuth(self.securityspy_login, self.securityspy_pass))



With this to make it work again.
Code: Select all
         r = requests.get(url, stream=True, timeout=100)


(I do use credentials (username and password) entered in the plug-in configuration.
