Did URL Decoding stop working

Post by mpg732 » Sat Nov 28, 2020 9:43 pm

I have been using this as part of my feedback for KODI for years and now it suddenly stopped working.

Was wondering if any one else know why?

Thanks Mike

So I see this is a very old question with no answers but im having the same issue decoding the URL provided in XBMC feedback specifically, I am using the posted Frodo XBMC template, I see the encoded URL being added to the Label based on the feedback, even though the label is assigned to the image for display, nothing shows up.

i.e the label value being assigned is URL encoded as follows "https%3a%2f%2fimage.tmdb.org%2ft%2fp%2foriginal%2fr7dJqfmspzVlHYWXBiKn7NP8ZBw.jpg/"

i believe demopad based on the XBMC frodo based template should decode the URL and display the image but the image is always blank.
If I decode the IRL manually to "https://image.tmdb.org/t/p/original/r7d ... NP8ZBw.jpg" and use it in a browser the link works but it seems to me demopad is not decoding the URL.
Anyone have experience with this?

Could be because it needs to be http not https?
