Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have just installed emby app on my TV. When I try to log in the app say "bad password", althrough I am sure that the password is correct.

 

The logs says : "Input string was not in a correct format."

 

Love emby and it would be great if the smartTV app would work.

 

Samsung Firmware Version

 

TV Model : UE46F6320 (E series 2012)

Samsung firware Version : Lastest 2126

Samsung Emby Client Version : 2.2.4

 

Thank you in advance for your help !

Not that it makes much a difference for this issue, but you actually have a F-series 2013.  The "E" you see in that second column is for Europe.

Are you using a connect userid to login by chance?  If so, try a local account instead.  If I remember correctly connect user login was never implemented in the older app.

Not sure what is "userid login". I do not have many options on the App. At startup, it ask me the server address (or ip) and then it display the available users.

I tried to log in with several users and as well with manual login.

Does it work with a user without a password?

I did not try but in any cases, as the server is over internet, a password will be always required.

From what I remember connect or logging on remotely was never implemented in the community app

The logfie suggests the opposite.

Look at the end :

 

HTTP GET emby/Users/AuthenticateByName?format=json

 

The problem is that the app use a GET http request instead of a POST request.

That's possible, just know the developer said it didn't work.  Might be a quick fix

Okey.

I will check the source code if it is available.

Thank you

Unfortunately, the developer for that app is no longer around.  The ability to login with connect and LiveTV were a couple of things that were being worked on before he left, but I don't think were fully developed. 

 

The code is on github if you are willing to take a look that would be great

I (briefly) looked at the code and everything seems ok.

 

Not sure but I think the issue come from the http->https redirection. (My server has Redirect rule in order to force https)

When redirecting, xmlhttp strip the POST and send the request as GET.

 

I am investigating :)
