Stream error: ffprobe omits Referer header; 403 returned


Recommended Posts

I've recently noticed an issue with a stream failing that worked previously (i.e. it worked on v4.5 vs the current v4.6.2).

The stream requires the 'Referer" header, which is added appropriately via the M3U setup dialog.  When the stream is accessed, Emby shows "Playback Error: No Compatible streams available". 

The logs show that ffprobe omits the 'Referer' header, so a 403 is returned and things obviously go awry from there (which would be expected).

(Aside:  ffprobe does include the 'User-agent' header if specified, but not the 'Referer'.)
