> Hi,

> that there could be a seamless user experience of Authentication on  
> Playstation/Set-top-box. In due course we investigated it a bit and  
> found that OpenID/OAUTH 2.0 follows a redirection model FROM Relying  
> Party TO OpenID Provider through the UserAgent, which happens to be  
> browser in all example implementation we have seen.
>  We have quick question, As described we are using Blue-Ray players  
> which lacks the ability of having state-of-the-art browsers, is  
> there any possibility of implementing OpenID and OAUTH w/out going  
> thru browser route of redirection, such as any direct API call to  
> get an authentication of user? Is it even feasible?
>  Are there any implementations done for Set-Top-Box by any other  
> company we could leverage some design discussions?
>  Appreciate your early response.
>  Thanks in advance.
