Is there a way to inplement support for IPTV services which require a subscription and the user to log in with a user/pass combination?

There are a couple of dedicated XBMC add-ons that do this (like this or this one) and those add-ons are basically the only thing holding me back from switching to MP. :(

    Sure it is possible. Some sites already do such things -like YouTube where you can set your credentials.

    And how about those XBMC add-ons linked to above? Couldn't you just look into the code and copy the "authentication bits" to get the services working within OV?

    I personally don't have the time - and anyone who wants to create a site would probably need credentials to test it (plus motivation to implement your 2 requests). So it sure is possible and the XBMC code helps (though not in a copy paste manner) but you have to find someone willing and time to implement it.
