_ie function to choose Referrer

Recommended Posts


Hi. I am trying to create an embedded ie window and have successfully done so. First I change the site to google.com (need to navigate before i can write html to the embedded window) Then i use _IEDocWriteHTML to make an embedded youtube link. The problem is I get an error when trying to play the song ->

 this video contains content from vevo. it is restricted from playback on certain sites

So I tried googling this and it seems like I need to specify a Referer or youtube will block me(on certain videos)

I once again turned to google and found this thread https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/165108-ie-referrer/  and this snippet of code 

$oIE.Navigate2("http://whatismyreferer.com", Default, Default, Default, 'Referer: "newwebsite.com"')

but I am not quite sure what I should fill in here. I have never heard of referer before this problem occoured, but isn't it what tells youtube where the user watching the video came from? how can i specify this when it is just a script running?

this is the code i use to build the html i use to create the embedded link to youtube

local $buildHtml = ""
    $buildHtml &= "<head>" & @CRLF
    $buildHtml &= "<body>" & @CRLF
    $buildHtml &= '<iframe width="300" height="300" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/'& $split[1] &'?rel=0&amp;showinfo=1" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>'
    $buildHtml &= "</body>" & @CRLF
    $buildHtml &= "</head>" & @CRLF

split[1] contains the id of the video. I would like some help to how I can resolve this and maybe an answer to if my understanding of a referer is correct(and/or maybe a more in depth answer)?

#include <ie.au3>

$buildHtml = ""
$buildHtml &= "<HTML>" & @CRLF
$buildHtml &= "<BODY>" & @CRLF
$buildHtml &= '<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/QcIy9NiNbmo?rel=0&amp;showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>' & @CRLF
$buildHtml &= "</BODY>" & @CRLF
$buildHtml &= "</HTML>"

$gui = GUICreate("",300,300,-1,-1)
$ie = _IECreateEmbedded()
_IEAction($ie, "refresh")

Nvm I found a solution. By chaning the _ienavigate to youtube.com it will allow me to see the embedded video.

      I am trying to use the ControlClick in a "save as"-window to select the path of where to save the document.
      I found out that when in press the icon in front of the path, i select the path. So I am trying to press that button (i have attached a print screen of this window).
      While trying to figure out how i had to use the ControlClick, it said somewhere that i could us Au3Info to find out what title,... i should use with the ControlClick.
      The result of the Au3Info I have attached aswel.
      The ControlClick that i tried are these: (and none of these even move the mouse)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:4]", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32; INSTANCE:4]", "", "1001", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("[CLASS:ToolbarWindow32]", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      ControlClick("Save project as", "", "", "Left" ,1 ,10,10)
      I don't know what I am doing wrong.
      Should I use a controlID? is my windowtitle wrong?
      Can anyone help me?
      Thanks in advance,

      I need to add a column with data daily at the end of the column and calculate the difference between last two columns in put it in a seperate column. So i need to get the  position of the last column.
      Local $count = $oWorkbook2.Worksheets(1).UsedRange.Columns.Count MsgBox(0,"",$count) ; ***************************************************************************** ; Copy a single cell from another workbook. Pass the source range as object. ; ***************************************************************************** Local $oRange = $oWorkbook2.Worksheets(1).Range("A1:A15") _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook1.Worksheets(1), $oRange,"H1:H15") _Excel_RangeWrite($oWorkbook1, $oWorkbook1.Worksheets(1), "=C2-H2", "I2:I15", False) this code copies to a specific column H with a range 15. But i need to keep that column range to update automatically when columns are added.

      I inspect that Security tab in the webpage .I get the html element below:
      <td tabindex="-1" align="center" class="infaTabsetSimpleTabSetTop" nowrap="true" valign="middle" onfocus="app_details_browse.$47()">Security</td>
      If iam using the class name and trying to click the element. Iam getting "found" but cannot click as all the tab contains same class.
      If iam using the onfocus attribute which is different for every tab and trying to click the element, the element cannot be found.
      Local $oFound = "" Local $oBtns = _IETagNameGetCollection($oIE, "td") For $oBtn In $oBtns ;If String($oBtn.onfocus) ="app_details_browse.$47()" Then If String($oBtn.classname) = "infaTabsetSimpleTabSetTop" Then $oFound = $oBtn EndIf Next If IsObj($oFound) Then _IEAction ($oFound, "focus") _IEAction ($oFound, "click") MsgBox(16, "Success", "found") Else MsgBox(16, "Failed", "Not found.") EndIf
