or maybe better
bool res = filmonRequest("tv/api/init?channelProvider=ipad&app_id=IGlsbSBuVCJ7UDwZBl0eBR4JGgEBERhRXlBcWl0CEw==|User-Agent=Mozilla%2F5.0%20(Windows%3B%20U%3B%20Windows%20NT%205.1%3B%20en-GB%3B%20rv%3A188.8.131.52)%20Gecko%2F2008092417%20Firefox%2F3.0.3");
Hope this helps.
NOTE: en-GB is not the real trouble. User-agent has to be EXACTLY what I wrote. I really don't know why.
Hi new forum member here, I'm very interested in getting this resolved also.
Are you sure this is correct Aristogiton? Does the "|" symbol set the user_agent in kodi, as if you just add the user_agent switch when calling the filmon api you still get a 403 return (I can only get the json to return correctly if I manually in chrome change my user agent to be the one you first mentioned).
Drt1989, I can compile the code, but I'm not sure how to distribute it if we resolve this as I need to make it work for android and I'm not sure if it's the same code path for android/windows/ios etc.
