Can't Link Provider When Using Browser Source


New Member
I prefer using browser source rather than display source when making long recordings so I can continue to use the PC's second display while recording without inadvertently causing something to appear on the display being recorded and ruining the recording.

Problem is that on some websites requiring authentication of TV Provider (e.g., cable or streaming TV package), I can get to the screen where I can select a provider but then nothing happens when I select that provider.

E.g., to watch locked shows on NBC/SYFY in a browser, I can chose "Link Provider" on the home page and then select the provider on this page [] which will open and then where I would be able to enter user/password and then see this page where I then could navigate to play locked content.

But while interacting with a browser source in OBS, I I can chose "Link Provider" on the home page but then selecting my provider on this page [] does not do anything except highlight the provider name. No login page is displayed.

I've tried deleting the default Custom CSS in the Browser Properties dialog but the issue persists. I've searched this forum and the web for a solution but haven't found an answer. Anything else I could try to get the login to work?

The logfile says there is an error but don't know if it is possible to get around it:
