Most iptv providers use this tag in the m3u for grouping channels:

 

group-title="name channelgroup"

 

Is Emby going to support the above tag in the m3u, so users can group channels in Emby ?

So users can make their own channel groups like Movie, Music, Sport, News, so a user can QUICK SELECT which channels they only want to see in Guide view, Channel view, On Now etc.

I think channel groups are a great idea for the future, thanks.

Has there been any progress on supporting grouping in m3u files as used by most/all IPTV providers.  I think you would have a huge uptake in your product if this were supported.  Without this, Emby is not a real option for IPTV and the huge number of channels that normally come with the service.

Many Thanks

You may wish to checkout Xtream Editor. It is an online m3u editor that can manage m3u playlists and supports removing channels, groups, creating new groups, and merging playlists from different sources. I was able to trim a m3u playlist down from 1000+ channels to 150. It syncs with dynamic m3u lists too. Only downside is that there is a cost, about $1 a month.

hi Diesel, I use stream-editor already but my channel list is still very long having to support uk,fr,de and ch countries.  Switching between channel groups in an EPG is normally a standard offering and just makes life so much easier.

The other thing that Emby has to resolve is the channel start up time which is currently way too long compared to other IPTV apps - I do appreciate there is more going on with the ability to pause/record.

 

Anyway, thanks for the response.
