Creating an IPTV playlist

The IPTV m3u playlist
is a directory that allows the program to show exactly what you are interested in.

Any m3u file includes the address of the content and its properties. Links can refer directly to a file if it is saved in one folder, it can be a path to a storage location on a hard disk or an address on the Internet. The latter is used for IPTV playlists.

How to create your own m3u playlist for IPTV in a regular notepad

Usually, on a computer with the operating system (OS) Windows work in the text editor “Notepad” – it is simple and does not require users to download special applications. It is enough to find a link to the broadcast – and you can start. But other operating systems and applications will also work. How to create an IPTV playlist 2021 yourself:

Step 1. Create a text document txt

A text document can be created in 2 ways:

  • through the menu “Start” – “Notepad” – “Save As”, select the save location.

Step 2. Change the file format from TXT to M3U

You can also change the format in 2 ways. First way:

  1. On the desktop, left-click on the document and select “Rename Document”. Rename document
  2. After the name itself, put a full stop and write m3u. For example: “New text document.m3u”.new document

NamesIt’s not easy to find channel links to create an IPTV playlist. Many do not have official streaming broadcasts in the public domain, so a significant part of the addresses available on the Internet lead to “pirated” broadcasts. The easiest ways to search for links is to google forums dedicated to IPTV, as well as extract from ready-made m3u, laid out for free access. Many TV channels regularly change the video stream distribution address in order to protect their copyright for the film, therefore, the links in their IPTV playlist need to be updated.

    У меня не андроид на телевизоре LG и там система немного проще. Есть определенный плеер, если не ошибаюсь SSIPTV, вот в него я вхожу на своем ноутбуке и здесь же ввожу код, который мне выдает сам телевизор по запросу. В этот файл на компьютере я вношу название каналов, которые просто копирую в интернете с абсолютного любого плейлиста. Именно они и появляются на моем телевизоре при обновлении плеера. Мне удобно и пользоваться реально очень просто, я довольна. В статье идет речь о другом способе, а у меня свой.

      Купил себе умный телевизор от самсунг, хотел разобраться что да как. Услышал про IPTV плейлист, загорелся идеей попробовать. Просить детей было не удобно, они все время на работе или заняты, поэтому сам зашел в интернет, нашёл ваш сайт и прочитал статью. Сделал все по инструкции, сейчас все функционирует замечательно. Даже я, человек, не идущий в ногу со временем, смог разобраться, все действительно очень просто. Не ожидал, что пенсионеру будет настолько легко разобраться. Статья информативная, большое спасибо авторам.
