hello i currently use "Smart IPTV" to watch live tv using m3u playlist. 

 

can EMBY handle playback of .m3u file as well?

 

Where do i setup my URL? 

 

Are all servers supported or only specific ones?

 

I tried the IPTV plugin and got the following error:

 

 

Playback Error
No compatible streams are currently available. Please try again later or contact your system administrator for details.

You can use an m3u playlist with Emby. You need to set it up under Live TV in the dashboard, and set up your URL as an M3U Tuner. You can then also add your EPG URL as an XML TV guide source.

EPG is the program guide. Usually, providers give you both URLs, so if you don’t have one, you’ll need to look one up online for the channels you need.

Channel management is currently being worked on by the Emby team, so no there is no easier way to find and manage channels, other than using search within the Emby client apps.

You can search from within the Emby Server web interface by clicking the search icon on the Emby home screen. Are you still having issues playing the streams?

Is this a free m3u playlist or a paid one? Most free ones have trouble playing properly.

Have you tried with and without the auto loop live streams option to see if you can get the channels to play? It could also be that your browser doesn’t support the channel’s format, and the server is having trouble transcoding or something like that.

Is there a way to use an m3u playlist with the iptv plugin? I appreciate you can add it under Live Tv but I have my VBox configured this way and do not want to mix up the vbox channels with all the channels from the iptv m3u file.

 

When I tried to add this in under IPTV it appears to want to only add one channel at a time? I'm guessing i'm doing something wrong?

I just switched from Plex to Emby and bought the lifetime subscription. I’m hoping the LiveTV management includes organizing channels as well. Smarters IPTV does this well.

With Emby I create categories, NEWS, SPORTS etc to keep the channels I want organized.

I use the GSE app to remove all non english content and upload that m3u playlist into Emby LiveTV so it’s somewhat easier to navigate.

Keep up the good work!

Hi,

 

I do NOT know if OP satisfied with the answer but i would like to share my experience

 

Livetv is paid so i use iptv plugin with 150 channels from a IPTV provider

 

What i did was download the .m3u file open it with Notepad

 

And added the channels i want into IPTV plugins that is 150 channels out of 7500 the m3u file contains.

 

After that i search google find image of channels and put it on the respectibe channels.

 

 

P.S : i dont know if IPTV plugin supports EPG, if it is i also wanted to know how

 

Regards
