Known issues:

  • If your PMS has issues with SSL - enable the 'Use Alternate SSL/TLS' option under channel prefs.
  • If the site is running slow, the Channel will crash when making lot of HTTP page requests - enable 'No Extra Info. for Nav. Pages (Speeds Up Navigation)' option under channel prefs.
  • If the movie page returns with only the trailer or bookmark options - please visit website to confirm and then report here
  • Links on Google 2 Server may not work on certain clients due to a cookie issue with Plex client - mentioned here. Not yet confirmed, try it with your client.

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

JS Fiddle reqkey cookie value decryption page: https://jsfiddle.net/codyA/cz2zn4h4/embedded/result/ (Video walkthru in Help menu of the plugin/channel)

    Thank you :)

    Had a question. I am discontinuing my 3 channel since either the site has stopped being updated or there are better alternates which I plan to keep maintaining. They are:

    1. http://forums.plex.tv/discussion/165757/
    2. http://forums.plex.tv/discussion/233261/
    3. http://forums.plex.tv/discussion/133987/

    I have marked them in their main post and title as well. My questions..

    1. Is it a good idea to have those threads locked.
    2. Is there a flag in UAS to disable them or should I remove the entry and do a PR for them as well.
  • dane22dane22 Members, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja Posts: 9,887 Plex Ninja

    I suggest that
    1. We lock the threads (I can do that)
    2. We indicate in the "Find my...." thread that they are no longer maintained (I can do that)
    3. A PR is created against UAS to remove them. This means they'll not be touched by UAS, if already installed, but will not be avail for new users (And you should create such a PR)

    Okay?

    tested last night on my android box, works great! I notice the odd movie here and there says the directory appears to be empty but I assume its to do with the source site.

    Great, please go ahead with the first two. I'll work on the 3rd. Thanks.

    Good to know. If you encounter one (where only the Bookmark option shows or none) in the future could you let me know. Just want to make sure its not a bug. Thanks.

    You can find the files but nothing shows up when selected, it is just not working here.

  • Mark SMark S Members Posts: 385 ✭✭✭

    Its this all the time.

    Are you on ver. 0.03 ? They changed something today so 0.02 and earlier broke.

    If its ver. 0.03 can you provide logs files of the channel. When you say 'files' do you mean you can see the page where it lists Google 1, Google 2 and Openload links ?

  • Mark SMark S Members Posts: 385 ✭✭✭

    It lists the films etc, but nothing appears when selected

  • Mark SMark S Members Posts: 385 ✭✭✭

    Installed from here.

  • coder-alphacoder-alpha Members Posts: 507 ✭✭✭

    @Mark S said:

    That's v. 0.03
    Did you try a PMS restart ? Since you don't see the page with the Bookmark option I'm guessing its failing on the url service which might need a PMS restart.

    Hard to say without the logs otherwise.

    Just finished watching a film with this plugin on a Smart TV with Opera and everything worked great. Tried it on a Firestick last night and was getting an error but it was late so I didn't look into it and haven't had a chance to try again since. The channel itself looks to be really good, lots of content and high quality sources, just a matter of how long it survives before it gets blocked here in the UK as we race to compete with North Korea for who can censor its citizens the most lol.

    I was getting the SSL error when I tried on my Ubuntu 14.04LTS PMS without the Alternate SSL Option so I used a workaround for it to create the Alternate SSL option and then it has worked on my Ubuntu PMS. Which OS are you running and whats your PMS version ? I'm on the latest Public one.

    There is a slight token issue which I am still working out. Seems to affect when the day changes, so from midnight to 1am, the default one does not work and one needs to enable the Token Tweak option. Lol. I think I have it almost figured and should be resolved in the next version.

    Lol true, but most of the time they just move around. ;)

    make hay while the sun shines

  • Mark SMark S Members Posts: 385 ✭✭✭

    Does not work after a PMS restart, I will just presume this plug-in is blocked here in UK.
    I dont know how to display a log to clarify this further.

  • dappa2dappa2 Members Posts: 231 ✭✭

    I'm in Uk Mark S, works ok here, I'm on virgin media.

    Coder alpha I was browsing around the channel the first day you made the channel available and like previously said the odd movie or tv show said "this directory appears to be empty" on some stuff I again clicked on the some of the ones which where doing it on 0.0.2 after updating to 0.0.3 and notice those movies show up now and load, so whatever you changed in the code has sorted it. Last night I did the the odd movie with just a bookmark movie showing up instead of the actual movie so if I see anymore I'll have a look at the source site and see if they are there.

  • Mark SMark S Members Posts: 385 ✭✭✭

    In my instance the movies do show up but when clicking on them nothing is shown.

    Great, Thanks. That would be very helpful. You can see the changes that go into each version here ---> Changelog

    Can you check and confirm this using PlexWeb. I did a test using all my other clients and my Sony Tv with Opera PlexApp did not work. Exhibits same behavior as you have reported. Once, I've ironed out the current issues with token and PMS, I'll start looking into client specific issues.

    I will try and add a SSL proxy option if this continues to give an issue. I was hoping the SSL Alternate would work equally well for others encountering the SSL issue. Curious to know if it works for anyone else on Linux/Mac ?
