M3U Playlist for TVHeadend
#1
Hi,

maybe someone here can help. I have a VU+ Box with a VTI Image installed. From the Web interface I can download the attached M3U List which also works in the Kodi IPTV Simple PVR Addon.

Now I wanted to use this M3U list as input for TVH. I understood this should work however I only get an unknown Playlist format.

Can someone help?

Thanks

S

Hi,

you should read thru that thread: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=194174
Which version of TVH do you use?

If its something above 4..... you should go to [Configuration] - [General] - [Base] and then start the configuration Wizard.
There you should at some point place the path to your m3u file and you should be fine.

Hi,

thanks a lot. Yes I found this thread earlier. Basically this was the reason why I'm trying to get this to work :-)

However the wizard just asks for the network - same way what I did (Have a look at the screenshot). Then I have to insert my URL. Unfortunately it just answers with: "Unknown Playlist Format".
So somethings wrong with the m3u list but I do not know what. VLC can read, IPTV simple addon can read only TVH does not.

There's a tool called IPTV Playlist editor. Also this tool cannot read the list. Can someone help and give some information on how to prepare a correct M3u List.

I just need one Test channel. Something like:

Code:
#EXTM3U
#EXTVLCOPT--http-reconnect=true
#EXTINF:-1,Das Erste HD
http://192.168.27.197:8001/1:0:19:283D:3FB:1:FFFF01A9:0:0:0:

I have the IP Adress, the Port and the Channel name...As I said VLC can read this format but I'm not sure what TVHEADEND expects.

Thanks

Edit: Sorry forgot to mention the version: HTS Tvheadend 4.1-2076~gbb64db6~jessie

When I was testing tvheadend some weeks ago I had the exact same problem. It drove me crazy... then I tested another playlist which worked and noticed that it had (in my case) something to do with spaces in the first line...

If it is the same reason for you, then try following: Delete all spaces in the first line of your *.m3u:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="ARD.de" group-title="Deutsch HD" tvg-logo="ard_hd_de.png",Das Erste HD
http://url
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="ZDF.de" group-title="Deutsch HD" tvg-logo="zdf_hd_de.png",ZDF HD
http://url

As far as I know I had such a first line:

Code:
#EXTM3U tvg-shift=0

so I had to delete "space tvg-shift=0"... then it worked suddenly.

Perhaps I did also change more afterwards... but I think it was the first line.
