Title: Is it possible to add password and userid to the generic xmltv url ?
Post by: denny09 on June 17, 2016, 11:59:18 AM
Emby has now implemented xmltv import which is awesome little issue is that I have to set up webget to download xml file because I don't know how to pass the user id and password in this url "http://iceguide.icetv.com.au/cgi-bin/epg/iceguide.cgi?op=xmlguide"

Emby can import it straight from a url but because there is a password and user id it needs to be added so emby can download it.

Thank you

Yes, you can include the username and password in the url. Use the following url but replace username and password with your IceTV username and password.

Code: [Select]
http://iceguide.icetv.com.au/cgi-bin/epg/iceguide.cgi?op=xmlguide -u username -p password
EDIT That may not work in Emby as those parameters are for use with our webget.exe downloader.

If Emby supports running a program or batch file to download the xmltv file then that could definitely be achieved.

For Emby try the following (with your username and password)

http://username:password@iceguide.icetv.com.au/cgi-bin/epg/iceguide.cgi?op=xmlguide

Thanks Dave your second post works.

I had no luck with your first reply when I enter it I still get a pop up box and when I type my username and password this comes up Error - unknown op: xmlguide -u -p

Have a great day
