logging into orkut

P: 2
im trying to log into orkut so i can do some things on the page. but im having trouble logging into the orkut page. this is as far as i have come (yay!)

this is the link that logs people into orkut. it takes two values through the fields "Email" and "Passwd". then after calling ServiceLoginAuth, redirects to the orkut home page if the input is correct.
so i tried to post the values into Email and Passwd using urllib's urlencode function. however, this doesnt seem to be working.
after sending the data, i keep coming back to this page.

can anyone please help me out? or atleast direct me to someone who has already achieved this?

as you can prolly make out, im a noob and so any help will be highly appreciated.

Orkut is a part of Google. Have you tried using the Google Base API to log in?

Loggin into orkut is much more than simply providing username and password. They have made it much more complex so that scripts cannot sign in easily. Here are the steps when loggin in. here is a perl script I made to login to orkut. I guess you can translate it into python etc...


Here is the algorithm

1. Goto www.orkut.com
2. Check whether the title is Home.
3. If not find the source of login page IFRAME
4. Fill the username and password and submit the FORM.
5. Find the follow link from the next page.
6. Goto the followlink and GET the redirect page URL
7. Goto the redirect page
8 Goto Orkut.com/home.aspx
9. Your done.

Similarly i have made a script to login and scrap and add friends check that out here
