What is IPTV?

IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television. This new low-cost technology is superseding the traditional satellite and cable subscription for many users around the world.

IPTV, the abbreviation of Internet Protocol Television, is a service which delivers the television channels through the logicalInternet protocol (IP) instead of traditional methods such satellite and cable televisions. Such, service can bring numerous advantages along with other IP-based services.

Some of the advantages of IPTV

Interactivity: Users can search for their favorite programs based upon the title of the program, name and time of the sports match, and even the actors’ name. From this, users can save their time by watching specific shows in a particular time and never leave their favorite programs unwatched. You can use the IPTV anywhere and with any device you have. All you need is just an internet connection. You can have more channels without the need to installing dishes on different sides of satellites.

Video On Demand (VOD): This is a unique service by which IPTV customers can rent movies or programs and play, pause, fast-forward or rewind it just like what users do with DVD players.

Economical: By using IP-based service, customers can utilize different service instead of buying several separate services and this is economical.

Watch IPTV

There are several ways in which IPTV streams can be watched based on IPTV hardware and software. The first thing you need to consider is the operating system of your device.

Internet data needed to run IPTV

Although it depends on the quality of channels, watching IPTV for one hour is roughly equal to download a video file with one hour of length. Assuming the size of one hour video varies between 500 to 800MB, this will give you an estimate of how much Internet data is needed for watching IPTV. Accordingly, if you plan to watch IPTV two hours a day, you will need at least 30GB of data traffic per month.

Buffering in IPTV

Although Buffering means a variety of definitions in different types of technologies, here we describe it in the field of IPTV streaming. In general, it means that when you are watching a live stream, the picture sometimes stops and resumes. This issue is being referred to as buffering. Buffering would speed up different tasks on your computer.

Buffering can prevent lag when you’re streaming video or prevent slow performance when you’re playing a graphics-intensive video game on your desktop computer. Buffering involves pre-loading data into a certain area of memory known as a “buffer,” so the data can be accessed more quickly on GPU or CPU.

Although diagnosing the underlying reason for buffering is a difficult task, potential factors which would cause the buffering are explained in this article.

What is M3U list?

The M3U list is a text file format which contains information regarding the channel list such as the name of the channels, the URL of the channel source and channel reference number divided to different groups of countries for the ease of access. M3U is the most used format for all IPTV devices.

How to Use an M3U 

The VLC media player is by far the best choice for streaming IPTV channels. The VLC is a free media player which supports a large variety of audio and video contents. Additionally, it supports other formats such as M3U8, PLS, XSPF, CON, and many more. M3U is the most used IPTV script among all IPTV users and it can be used on Smart TV, Smartphones, Android setup boxes, STB emulators, Roku and so forth.

Edit an M3U file and create a favorites list

The M3U files can be edited with any text editor such as notepad because the files are text-based. You can simply open the downloaded M3U file with a notepad and delete the unwanted channels from the list and save the file on your computer. Then you can use this customized M3U file with your IPTV applications.

Why the channels are not categorized

The reason is that you are using a simple M3U URL or file. In order to have channels in groups and categorized, you must use M3U with options as your IPTV script. 

The progressive IPTV providers give you a dashboard which you can download your M3U url, generate M3U with options url and reload your list to have channels categorized.
If you don’t have access to any dashboard system ask your IPTV provider for M3U with options url.

The M3U url does not work

We are going to give you some recommendation to troubleshoot M3U url problem in IPTV services.

M3U url Troubleshoot

1 - First of all, you need to check if the M3U url is correct or not.
Need to check the url address, username and password.

The progressive IPTV providers give you a dashboard which you can check your M3U url details in dashboard.
Better to generate your M3U url in dashboard again to be sure everything is fine with it.

If you don’t have access to any dashboard system by your IPTV provider, you can test the M3U url in a browser to check it.
Copy/Paste the M3U url in a browser (in a PC or Smartphone), then press enter.
If the M3U file starts to download so it is correct, and if not you need to check M3U details with your IPTV provider.

Note: Also you need to check if the M3U url blocked by IPTV provider or not. IPTV provider will block the line if you use the it in more than allowed devices in a same time.
(If you have dashboard from your IPTV provider you can check this by running diagnosis option for the url)

2 - After become sure the M3U url is correct, try to Reload the url once again in your application.
Usually this will solve the problem.

3 - In the next step if still have problem, try to test the M3U url in another device and application.
One of the best reference software is VLC in a computer.
You have many other options too.
For example if you are facing trouble with the M3U url in Smart TV with Smart IPTV application.
You need to test it in VLC (Computer) or GSE (Smartphone), if the M3U url works in these softwares now you need to test the line in another application in your Smart TV e.g. Smart STB or SSIPTV application.
If you see that M3U url works fine in other applications so the problem is from the application you used.

4 - In the last step after check everything need to contact the IPTV provider support to check the M3U url.

Some helpful tips:

  • Always better to use M3U url and do not use the Static M3U file to have all new updates.
  • Do not share your M3U url details in any public place.

Where to find the username, password, and the server name?

The M3U list is a text file format which contains information regarding the channel list such as the name of the channels, the URL of the channel source and channel reference number divided to different groups of countries for the ease of access. M3U is the most used format for all IPTV devices.

Some applications like "IPTV Smarter" and "GSE Xtream-Codes API" in the setting ask for "Server Address" ,  "Username" and "Password" .

How to find Server Address in a M3U url

Finding these details from the M3U url is not complicated, just a little confusing.
In this article we will help you to find these details easily.

In the below, we explain it in an example,

The first part of M3U Url  is the Server name you need (before the "/") .

For this sample M3U Url :
http://"Server.Address"/get.php?username="ABCD"&password="EFGH"&type=m3u_plus&output=ts

These are the details you need for IPTV setup:

Server Address:    http://"Server.Address"/
Username :           "ABCD"
