OK I think i know what the issue is and it's resolved for the next release. Workaround in the meantime is to specify a custom friendly name for your emby server that doesn't have any accent characters or diacritics.

Hi All,

 

Emby Version 4.3.1.0

Using Firefox & Chrome

 

As I mentioned, I'm a newbie to this so apologies in advance for lack of knowledge etc.

 

Here's my playlist...

 

hxxp://mbm.watch:8085/get.php?username=xxxxxxxxxx@Xxxxx.com&password=xxxxxx&type=m3u_plus

 

The screenshots below shows what I did. As is obvious, I have no clue what I'm doing.

When I click the save button I get an error message saying, "There was an error saving the TV provider, please ensure it is accessible and try again." If I hit the search button in the screenshot above I get the screenshot below. I have no idea what to do with that part or if I need to be using that part? Playlist does not play in Emby.

 If anyone can tell me how to complete the process of putting my m3u_plus playlist into Emby successfully I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for any assistance offered.

 

Cheers,

Hugh.

Not sure what you are asking here. 

 

That last screenshot looks like you are adding a library....

 

More info please

Hi Kanipec,

 

I'm trying to add the m3u_plus playlist to emby live tv but it doesn't work. I was just showing the steps I took.

 

Thanks,

Hugh.

You don’t need to click on the magnifying glass icon after you’ve pasted your URL. That button is for selecting a local m3u playlist, but since you are using a URL, it’s not necessary.

After you pasted your URL, simply set the number of maximum simultaneous streams your subscription allows and the rest can be left as default.

Hi samuelqwe

 

I did as you suggested but still got the error message saying, "There was an error saving the TV provider, please ensure it is accessible and try again."

 

Thanks for your help,

Hugh.

I would verify that the URL is indeed correct and wait for the guide refresh to finish. If the issue persists after that, I would wait for an Emby admin to assist you as it could be an issue with Emby.

Hi samuelqwe,

 

I've used the m3u_plus playlist in different apps etc and it worked fine. I thought maybe Emby used different type of lists other than those ending in m3u_plus.

 

Many thanks for your help.

 

Hugh

This means Emby Server is unable to access that remote url. This could be due to the domain not being reachable, or they could also be rejecting the request. The server log might help tell us a little bit more.
