Shortcuts to autheticated stream

Nic Nay 5 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 4 years ago 0

I am connecting to a stream that requires authentication (username and password) and Xiialive pro is connecting nicely to it.  I can also save it as a favorite and this works. However, making a home-shortcut to the favorite, results in the app saying "invalid url".  I am trying to set this up for an elderly lady, and this needs to be very simple for her (even searching under favorites is confuses her) 


Would really appreciate any ideas

Thanks for your feedback. Shortcuts currently don't support storing the authentication data for security reasons. I will look into this to see if I can include authentication data securely.

I'm not sure why you would get invalid URL after clicking on the shortcut. I would have thought at worst it would ask for the username and password again. Could you reproduce the issue and right after go to XiiaLive->Settings and press on "Bug report". This should hopefully provide enough details to figure out what is going on.
