I'm trying to stream this web stream through Kodi -
TV5
rtmp://202.131.225.109/livepkgr&streamname=livestream3?adbe-live-event=liveevent&live=1 swfUrl="http://tv5.mn/f4player/player.swf" pageURL="http://www.tv5.mn" swfVfy=true live=true

I get it to come up in the Video file and when I click on it is says it's working, but then just stops. I think I'm close but not sure what's wrong.

Also, do you know how to stream one like this: <iframe src="http://tv.onair.mn/watchEmbed/c1"></iframe> from this page: http://tv.onair.mn/watch/c1

Thanks in advance. Big Grin

Sorry if I'm in the wrong place to ask this (noob here) but how do I find new streams to create an m3u playlist as most of them seem to go down daily.

If there is a way can you maybe help with a few pointers or just point me to a guide somewhere please.

Thanks in advance

Edit: Rephrased my nooby question

Thanks mate. I started to locate these URLs from the OnAir website source and have been putting them in a .srtm file with the ?key= part after help from another forum. I'm going to test them tonight or tommorrow. Thanks for the help Marc.

Try searching in google: iptv links.
Then take the link (http) and try to open it. If you have VLC, it is much easier to test: open VLC, then Ctrl+V, insert the link. If it plays, insert it into your playlist.m3u file.
Or just copy all the links you found into m3u file and open the m3u in Kodi, then manually remove those that do not work in text editor ( I do not think Kodi is good for inline editing of playlists, at least I do not know the way).
Second options, there are unofficial Kodi plugins that search and update the TV links. They are discouraged to use by Kodi developers as they may deal with piracy. Search on forums.

Hi, I have a stream: http://xwilsonjjx.api.channel.livestream...ylist.m3u8 Which when I open it up in Kodi, I get audio only but not a black screen, a kind of pixelated screen. I can change the size of the moving 'mess' so there is a video coming through, but just not properly. Tried changing settings to no avail.
The only thing I can think of is it is in NTSC perhaps?? But I wouldn't think that would make a difference on a computer.
I also have a flash link which works in a browser but can't work out how to use it in Kodi: http://cdn.livestream.com/grid/LSPlayer....oplay=true

Driving me a bit crazy trying to isolate url streams in a stream sniffer as it pulls out lots of rmtp and others from the page....

thanks in advance.

Does anyone know how to rip a stream from a webpage? I've found tools but they never work when I put them in a m3u.
