New automation routine for reqkey cookie. Details on how to set them up are discussed below. You only need 1 of them. Thanks to @Twoure for both the methods.
Method 1: Installing a JRE like Node.js
The preferred automation routine for the cookie requires a JRE installed on the PMS machine. There are a few other JRE's that might work as well but I have only tested this with Node.js. Once installed restart your PMS and confirm in your channel log if possible and see the following entries to confirm..
2017-05-16 19:41:23,578 (209c) : DEBUG (core:566) - Finished loading plug-in code 2017-05-16 19:41:26,500 (209c) : INFO (logkit:16) - execjs loaded from v1.1.0 2017-05-16 19:41:26,500 (209c) : INFO (logkit:16) - execjs using engine: Node.js (V8)
Then navigate to the Reset Cookie and try a video and check if you are still getting the token error.
Method 2: Using a webhook url - please fork the one below and use your own
The other automation method (primarily where JRE cannot be installed) utilizes a website to run a small script to decode (similar to the manual process using jsfiddle). It is limited to 1000 request per month with their free plan so I request everyone to signup for the free account and fork this script https://hook.io/coder-alpha/test/fork and then enter it under the Channel settings/Prefs
Once you have updated the Settings/Prefs with your webhook-url navigate to Reset Cookie and then try a video and check if you are still getting the token error.
Once you have got one of the above methods working you can set your Cache expiry time to 100 (min.). This will fetch new cookies at that interval. I think the session cookie are valid for 2 hrs.
Method 3: manual method using jsfiddle
