  1. Version Hi there, currently having an issue with playing Live TV m3u sources. Having either: -"no compatible streams" -"spinning wheel" -"eventualy play 'some' streams after massive delay Opening the M3U streams via VLC works flawless. So far I have:- -removed and re-added source m3u and xml -restarted server -updated to latest beta -confirmed there are no outgoing dns resolution issues from the server Attached is the server log from a restart - failing to play a couple. If there are any clues there, please let me know. embyserver.txt Kind regards, Jonny
  2. Hi Emby Team, This request is for adding an additional header option in the 'TV Source Setup' page when setting up an M3U Tuner. Right now the choice is only 'User agent' however I have a need to set a custom HTTP referer with one of my sources. I'd be OK with a referer input box however it might be better to have multiple key / value input boxes to allow any header and its override value (including user-agent). For reference, VLC uses a customer #EXTVLCOPT tag in the M3U to provide this functionality. ffmpeg has a "-headers" option, KODI uses 'key=val' piped at the end or the URL, and Plex has support in their IPTV.Bundle plugin. Thanks for consideration. -M
  3. Hi, I'm a newbie to Emby and I'm trying it out working with my M3U playlist. When I've imported the M3U playlist only some of the channels are listed I've identified with BBC One (listed) and BBC One HD (unlisted) Then i've cut back the M3u list only to include those: #EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="BBC One HD" tvg-id="BBC1.uk" tvg-logo="http://vod6.service.tv:8080/logos/bbc%20one%20hd.png"group-title="United Kingdom",BBC One HD http://Service.tv/live/user/pass/2464.ts #EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="BBC One" tvg-id="BBC1.uk" tvg-logo="http://vod6.service.tv:8080/logos/BBC%20one.png"group-title="United Kingdom",BBC One http://Service.tv/live/user/pass/39862.ts And again, only the non-HD channel is listed For what reason would the HD channel not be listed??

    A better use for playlists

    Emby's recognition and use of .m3u playlist files is a major advantage over Plex. I think they could be better used, though. Currently, all playlists are accessible via a Playlists 'library' on the Emby home page, or the Playlists view within a library. But all playlists, no matter where the .m3u files reside, are gathered together in one monolithic page. If I want to find a Dvorak Symphony to play, I have to sift through the entire list. I think it would be a better, more usable model, if it worked something like this: I have a box set of all 9 Beethoven symphonies. Since each symphony consists of 4 or 5 tracks, I created a .m3u file for each symphony. It would be nice if, when viewing the Album Detail page, I had the option of seeing the discrete list of tracks (the current view) or a playlist view, which would look something like this: There are cases where a CD may have a 4-track symphony as well as some single-track works. I attempted to show how this might appear in the mock-up. I can think of 3 ways to go about this. My mock-up includes buttons for 'Disc View' and 'Playlist View.' The Disc View button reveals the current discrete track list. The Playlist View button reveals my proposed view. Emby should remember this selection on a per-album basis. There could be a Library-level setting to enable/disable Playlist view for the entire library. Since discrete tracks are displayed the same way in either mode, there may be no need for the buttons at all. If at least one .m3u file exists in the media folder, the UI displays it in the new format. Would people want/need the option to switch views? I don't know. I would also expect that the 'shuffle' function would keep playlisted groupings (like entire symphonies) intact, so Beethoven's 9 intact symphonies would be played in random order, but each symphony is internally not shuffled. What do you think?

    M3U with options support

    Hi All, I was wondering if it would be possible that when an m3u tuner is added with the "m3u with options" that emby could then detect the with options and sort the channels into their correct categories so that it is not one big list of icons, similar to what the cigeras IPTV plugin for plex does on github. https://github.com/Cigaras/IPTV.bundle Many thanks!.

    Playing TV from an "m3u source"

    Hi I'm trying to setup live TV in Emby with an M3U file as "source". Is that only possible with an Emby Premiere Sucscription? I have read the wiki and added the file as a TV source : But trying to play something via the Live TV plugin it prompts med for Emby Premiere? So can this be achived using the free version?

    Best PAID Legal IPTV Service

    Hi guys, I'm looking for options for a reliable PAID IPTV service to use with Emby. I have used Villo in the past and that worked pretty well. But I'm trying to build a list and guide for setting up IPTV properly on Emby. So looking for all the options that have been tested and known to be reliable. Any assistance and information that can be provided will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Hi, This is part of the request https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/65020-live-tv-enhancements/ metadata display for radio streams - eg. jQuery Stream, embedded m3u/8 comment, Icy-Metadata, Icecast CORS/ACAO headers. I have a ttached an m3u file which I tried to directly add as m3u tuner, but the server would not load it properly, possibly because it is one stream with multiple chunks ( also has metadata)... it can be called from another m3u tuner though. https://wz3web.scahw...loadSessionID=0 #EXTM3U #EXT-X-VERSION:3 #EXT-X-TARGETDURATION:6 #EXT-X-MEDIA-SEQUENCE:40 #EXTINF:5.015,Lukas Graham - Love Someone fRjAPQ6Q9DEp-308311271-5015.aac #EXTINF:4.969,Lukas Graham - Love Someone lR52ZCSwo0Yp-308311272-4969.aac #EXTINF:5.015,Lukas Graham - Love Someone j6TateebXsLp-308311273-5015.aac

    Add tvg-group flag to m3u streams

    Add live flag for m3u streams

    Hi, This is a part of the request https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/65020-live-tv-enhancements/ live (1/0) - disable/enable live stream flag, so play and seek controls can be enabled or disabled
  12. Hi, This is a part of the combined request https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/65020-live-tv-enhancements/, I decided to group these particular ones together as they tie in with each other. tv (0/1) - enable/disable tv (must specify either radio or audio-only options if set to 0) radio (true) - enable radio-specific stream with rich metadata (only use if tv=0, can not be used with audio-only) audio-only (true) - enable audio only stream without rich metadata (only use if tv=0, can not be used with radio)
  13. Hi, I believe Emby Server is not reading #EXTINF data correctly in m3u playlists. I had to alter the following entries in my playlist #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="7",7 Digital Melbourne #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="71",7 Digital Melbourne to #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="7",7Digital Melbourne #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="71",7Digital Melbourne Emby was not parsing these correctly, and was not mapping them to the correct channel number. I am guessing that if the channel name begins with a digit, it is read as a channel number.

    A Problem Channel - IPTV

    Hello, I have one problem channel when I try to play it over an Emby Connect connection. It works fine on my LAN. I've tried multiple external connections and no matter how fast, this one channel stutters. I've also try lowering the resolution to the minimum and it makes no diff. I can send the M3U for this channel over PM if you need it. I have attached the FFMPEG log. Thanks, Jason FFMPEG.txt

    m3u link with user agent don't work

    Hi, Can you help me for this m3u link : http://notv.tk:8880/get.php?username=Tvingoplus_FR&password=aQVwG5DKqF&type=m3u It works in vlc but when I enter it in m3u tuner, it shows channels but doesn't work. Thank you
  17. It would be great to have full support of m3u playlists so that external playlist can be easily imported and modified through Emby. It would be a much stronger music server! Plex doesn't do that, so it would be a point in favour of Emby too

    Another m3u won't work thing

    Think I've seen a few m3u channel won't work topics floating around, possibly since beta appeared, and maybe a few comments about its fixed, which is why I haven't mentioned similar stuff like this. So, as far as I can tell m3u live tv hasn't worked for me in Chrome since version 1.10, and am up to 1.13 at the mo. Am attaching logs were I tried to play one channel and just got the spinning circle, then tried the same in ET 3.0.0 and it played fine after about a second. Am on Windows 10, playing on same machine as server. embyserver.txt

    Keep Flag Background Channel Icons

    This may sound like a strange request, but when I first added my M3U file the channels and guide populated with some very nice (I believe default) Channel Icon with the Flag of the country it was from behind it. I actually kind of liked it because it allowed me to know what country the Channel was from (A&E with USA vs A&E with Spanish Flag for example) What happened though is after EPG refreshed after 24 hours, then the icons were replaced by just the channel icons, the png that were bigger, perhaps more poppy and they look nice, but I would love to see if there is a way to retain the Flag Backed Ones somehow, or to have the Flag in the background of the newer ones. I can provide screenshots if needed.

    Live TV Sorting Issue - m3u

    Hi I have loaded in an m3u and guide xml fine with Emby Server however am having a strange issue with the sorting in the guide. It appears as though emby is picking up the channel number from the stream title rather than using the sort order of the the m3u itself or using the name of the channel correctly. Have attached two images below: Is there any way I can resolve this?
  21. I am a new to EMBY came over from Plex, primarily because of the way EMBY integrates my my M3U and HDHomerun on one platform. Running it on a Qnap 251+ with 16GB Ram. I recently installed the QNAP beta build provided by Emby and it seems to run everything just a bit faster than the one I originally got from the Qnap community. However the load times for the HDHomerun and the M3U are slow to load when changing channels take 14 seconds and 12 seconds. When I load on other apps both only take about 1-2 seconds at the most. I have tried some of the recommendations for other post however they don’t seem to help much. I have attached my logs to help maybe get me in the right direction. I access the Emby server via chrome on my Mac laptop and Emby Android TV app through my Nvidia shield. I loaded both M3U and HDhomerun to test and replicate the slowness. Love the product thus far just want to reduce this initial load times. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you Log (1).txt Log.txt
  22. So I've spent time reading through everything on the forum about IPTV and M3U tuners. Is there any reason why we can't treat each M3U tuner as only being able to tune 1 channel from the channel xml list or have that as a user defined setting? From the reading it seems like the M3U tuner is considered to be "unlimited" streams by default. If limited to 1 stream you could create as many m3u tuners for a source as available connections. Emby would also be able to mark them available or watching as they are used Example screenshot of how my tuners would be created if this was the case: two hdhomeruns - 4x tuners 6 m3u tuners for iptv provider 1 - provider allows 6 concurrent connections 2 m3u tuners for iptv provider 2 - provider also allows you to pay for 6, paying for 2 As they are used, they get set to watching. When all are used it acts just like hdhomeruns and errors out when that source is out of connections. I assumed this was how it would work by default based on how physical tuners worked. Another option would be allowing us to specify how many connections per m3u source and building that number of virtual tuners for that source. Probably a cleaner way to do it.

    Emby M3U Live TV

    Hello All, I finally took the time and configured IPTV in Emby and now I'm wondering why I didn't do this long ago! Live TV is awesome in Emby, but I have a couple of questions: 1. With only 1 tuner, how does Emby handle locking the tuner when in use? It seems if Emby is recording and switch channels, it just stops recording and takes me to the new channel. Same thing happens if go to a different channel on another device. Am I missing something in config, or is this by design? 2. Can I just add another M3U tuner (assuming my IPTV provider supports multiple streams)? 3. Are there any plans to improve the EPG support? Spaceboy was kind enough to give me his AccessDB to build the EPG using SchedulesDirect, but it would be nice to have a simpler solution. 4. I find the guide is slow to load. Is this because my server is underpowered? Any answers are much appreciated!
  24. Hi I'm hoping you can help me with this problem. I have the latest Emby server on windows 7 64-bit and I spent hours setting up my Live Tv yesterday with the Live tv section on the server. I put a url in for the iptv service i subscribe to and also put 4 schedules direct epgs and the xml epg from my iptv service. I spent several hours matching channels up and getting the guid to put the channels in what order i wanted them. And when I went back on this morning the server changed the url address to an old one that i use to use. And it deleted the xml epg also. I don't know why this happened? I did a restore from the server configuration plug-in and it still has this old m3u url in it? I have attached my server logs from 4am in the morning and then the server log from when i went back on around 10am. Let me know how to prevent this from happening please

    M3U List

    Hi, I have been playing with emby for a couple of weeks now and have everything setup as I want, all working as it should except the Live TV. I am using a M3U list which adds the channels as expected, and the channels are list correctly, play and work correctly, however, for some reason emby has also added a couple of movies from my movies folder (not all movies just a random few), to the channel list? Firstly, why has emby done this, and secondly how can I remove the movies from the channel list and clean it up? Cheers in advance.
