Thank's I am curious though what do they use CURL on Kodi plugins to obtain
the link from webpages ? Also curious how they expect that to work when the
link grabbed has been generated for that IP address only. Any other IP that
requests the same link would result in a 403.

I also though YouTube generated MP4 links match the users IP and requested
URI only the same as the secure_link module.
