    Hi,

    I'm currently working on fixing the login issues for netflix and I need to add some extra browser things.
    As this has some dependencies on the MP version this needs to be fixed for MP2 too.

    Is anyone willing/available to do this for MP2 once I have it working for MP1? Because I can't release the updated siteutil until both MP versions are tested and working.

    @doskabouter before you change other things, did you consider my WebDriver approach to remote-control browsers? It's working quite well for AP and I guess it could be useful for NetFlix as well.

    To be honest, I didn't look into that yet.
    Don't even know if it would fix the current issue: logging in has to be done as a human on the website, the cookies need to be fetched and they can be used for subsequent requests through the normal getwebdata calls.

    Well, the WebDriver approach does not separate between interactive login and later automation. It all is "human interaction automation". That was the main advantage for me when I redeveloped AP plugin (I had same issue with token and cookies).

    true, but (at least I assume that) you want to browse through the videos and categories with the MP gui, and that is ofcourse never human interaction from the website's perspective.

    Yes, this is working as well: I do remote-control 2 instances. One does run "headless" and is used for "browsing" and parsing of categories, videos etc. The visible browser instance is first executed when I run playback of an item.

    Hm, sounds nice.
    I would guess that for this to be included in onlinevideos properly it needs a new release of onlinevideos?
    It seems like a bigger task to me right now than just patching things in the current workflow.
    I know it's probably better in the long run to go with your solution, but I think that's going to take a bit more time than I have right now...
