_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)?

uhm yea, pretty much like this

#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.

      Good morning everyone, I thought I had already solved this issue but it turns out I did not. 
      My code finds unread emails with this specific subject line of "request" but when I change the subject to SKIPPED + "request" = ("SKIPPED request") the program still finds the email and tries to process it. I only want to process emails with the exact match subject of "request".
      Here is my code that "finds" the unread emails with the subject of "request" or so I thought. 
      Func ListUnreadEmails() ;******************************************************************************* ; Lists all unread E-mails from the folder Outlook-UDF-Test ;******************************************************************************* ; Stores all the unRead emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Displays the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Gets the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) EndFunc It acts as if any part of the subject containing the word "request" and the email is unread that it will try to process it. (I think)

      Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 
      I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 
      Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:
      Func ChangeEmailStatus() ;******************************************************************************* ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read ;******************************************************************************* Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows) _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True") MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0]) MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0]) Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows) EndFunc

      Wrote a script that grabs all of the IP addresses from Netflix's IP log, checks the IPs and returns suspicious activity.
      Everything works as it should but only when _IECreate is set to visible. When visible is set to false, it fails to login for some reason.
      Any ideas what might cause it and/or how to circumvent that?
