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.

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.
