Unable to retrive cookiesSee original GitHub issue
I’m attempting to download content for the first time, but being unable to input my credentials. Web browser shows login page for 3 seconds then exits. Terminal returns the followig error:
$ ./PatreonDownloader.App --url https://www.patreon.com/artist-name/posts --download-directory /home/vapor/Downloads/patreon/test1 2021-10-30 20:46:40.7018 INFO Retrieving cookies... 2021-10-30 20:46:56.0068 FATAL Fatal error, application will be closed: System.Exception: Unable to retrieve cookies at PatreonDownloader.App.Program.InitializeSettings(CommandLineOptions commandLineOptions) in /home/vapor/Downloads/PatreonDownloader/PatreonDownloader.App/Program.cs:line 166 at PatreonDownloader.App.Program.RunPatreonDownloader(CommandLineOptions commandLineOptions) in /home/vapor/Downloads/PatreonDownloader/PatreonDownloader.App/Program.cs:line 142 at PatreonDownloader.App.Program.Main(String args) in /home/vapor/Downloads/PatreonDownloader/PatreonDownloader.App/Program.cs:line 69
I’m I doing something wrong?
I believe this was previousley mentioned on issue #41 but was closed due to lack of response from the submitting part.

Was able to extract the cookies form chomium using:
chromium --remote-debugging-port=9222 > /dev/null 2>&1 & (sleep 10; pkill chrome) & /path/to/PatreonDownloader.App \ --url https://www.patreon.com/creatorName/posts \ --download-directory /path/to/content/ \ --remote-browser-address ws://127.0.0.1:9222
on my end it opens an instant of chromium that google says isnt safe and thus wont let me login.
