auto login

Post by d.kilshtein » Fri Oct 23, 2015 8:59 am

Hi all

i want to view my cameras with kodi (former xbmc). i used this plugin plugin.video.zoneminder-master (from http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid ... pid2140669)

on my ZM, i have only one user - admin. with this configuration:

OPT_USE_AUTH Authenticate user logins to ZoneMinder (?) checked
AUTH_TYPE What is used to authenticate ZoneMinder users (?) builtin
AUTH_RELAY Method used to relay authentication information (?) plain
AUTH_HASH_SECRET Secret for encoding hashed authentication information (?) xxxxxx
AUTH_HASH_IPS Include IP addresses in the authentication hash (?) unchecked
AUTH_HASH_LOGINS Allow login by authentication hash (?) unchecked
OPT_FAST_DELETE Delete only event database records for speed (?) unchecked


when connecting with kodi, i get "authentication needed message" though i set all parameters correctly.
kodi plug in generates this url for login :
http://192.168.0.10/zm/?skin=classic&us ... tion=login

when i use this url, from my Chrome browser i get the ZM login screen (i guess that is why kodi fails)
is there a way to login into ZM without the login screen? is my configuration ok?

thanks a lot.

well i found out how to auto login:
http://<IP>/zm/?action=login&view=postlogin&username=<USER>&password=<PASS>
i was missing the "view=postlogin" part (used the wireshark to check the data during login).
it works from any browser but sadly not with the kodi plugin
