How to create my own IPTV playlist?
It is very simple to create your own IPTV playlist. In this section of Home IPTV blog, you will find an instruction step by step. Creating an IPTV playlist can be a piece of cake if you follow the exact same procedural steps. Let’s start.
Where to get a playlist?
You can use Google to search for the “IPTV m3u playlist”. Make sure that the playlist is legal and the content does not violate any intellectual property/copyright.
The home IPTV app does not contain any TV channels or playlists by default. The Home IPTV app developers are not responsible for any content that users intend to watch using the Home IPTV app.
The basic method to create an m3u playlist is to create a .txt file onto your computer
- Open Notepad (or any other text editor)
- In Notepad, add one by one, paths (or URLs) to movies or channels, or video clips you want
- Save file as .m3u extension
Each file path should contain a 2-line description that points to the online source. The syntax of the source should look like this:
EXTINF:-1, Pro Sport 2http://184.108.40.2062:1223/Tv4243
The number following the “#EXTINF” section is the audio length in seconds. If the audio is being streamed online and no length is set, then you will see -1. And the m3u URL is the relative path of m3u file.
How to upload a playlist?
