    You do realise you have posted your oauth secret here publicly?

    Are you forced to use such an old Qt version? If no, then please consider upgrading to Qt 5.8 or 5.9, where you can use the convenience QtNetworkAuth module.

    If yes, then you have already discovered all relevant classes needed in this case. Read the docs, all info on how to build requests is there. If something is unclear, feel free to ask here, of course.
