Title: TV-Lite Proxy support
Post by: Cristian on October 07, 2021, 22:08:40
Did some investigations on proxy support
Up until now, came up with the following:
Question: can anyone with proxy access care to test the environment settings?  I currently have no proxy to test with.
Thanks

More investigation on this feature:

Linux:
libcurl obeys both "http_proxy" and "https_proxy" environment variables. Playlist downloading should be fully functional.
HTTP stream playing can be done via proxy only if the VLC option "http-proxy" is set.
Could not set the HTTPS stream playing via proxy

Windows
The libcurl port for Windows ignores the proxy settings in Control Panel.
Similar to Linux, HTTP stream playing can be done via proxy only if the VLC option "http-proxy" is set.
Could not set the HTTPS stream playing via proxy

The following command line parameters were found for windows VLC 3.0.12
   --http-proxy=<șir>         Proxy HTTP
          http://[utilizator@]proxyulmeu.domeniulmeu:portulmeu/ ; dacă este
          gol, va fi încercată variabila de mediu http_proxy.
      --http-proxy-pwd=<șir>     Parolă proxy HTTP

      --socks=<șir>              Server SOCKS
      --socks-user=<șir>         Nume utilizator SOCKS
      --socks-pwd=<șir>          Parolă SOCKS

The http-proxy related command line options In Linux seem to be missing. However they might work when passed in libVLC.
