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.
