Scraper: Base64 encode for query string
#1
Lightbulb 
Hi guys,
I'm approaching to the xbmc development and I want to make a new scraper for the Tv Series.

Unfortunately the website that i want to scrape uses a base64 encoded string as query string.

For example, i I search for "Lost" I get this url:
http://myscrapesite.com/search.php?q=bG9zdA==

where "bG9zdA==" is "Lost" encoded in base64.

There is a way to pass a base64 encoded value to the rss?

the nice thing about a base64 function is you can use phproxy for retrieving info from your website
