Passing Credentials
« on: December 11, 2013, 01:47:46 PM »
Using a URL as an RSS feed in the SignageStudio--the page sits on a domain that requires Active Directory credentials.  Does anyone know of a way to supply them?  We are using the mediaDROID and it doesn't seem to prompt for credentials, so there is no way to show the page currently.

Well, you can try passing them in the URL, but keep in mind if it works, you are passing credentials in plain text for all to see. So the user should have very limited resources to your server.
