What is the M3U list?

How to Use an M3U

You can get a m3u playlist through Premium IPTV subscription, and then combined with your IPTV player or other platforms, you can open m3u links to watch TV shows.

The VLC media player is the best choice for streaming IPTV channels. The VLC is a free media player which supports a large variety of audio and video content. Additionally, it helps other formats such as M3U8, PLS, XSPF, CON, etc. M3U is the most used IPTV script among all IPTV users and it can be used on Smart TV, Smartphones, Android setup boxes, STB emulators, Roku, and so forth.

How to edit an M3U file and create a favorites list

The M3U files can be edited with any text editor such as notepad because the files are text-based. You can simply open the downloaded M3U file with a notepad and delete the unwanted channels from the list and save the file on your computer. Then you can use this customized M3U file with your IPTV applications.

Why the channels are not categorized

The reason is that you are using a simple M3U list or file. In order to have channels in groups and categorized, you must use M3U with options as your IPTV script.

The progressive IPTV providers give you a dashboard in which you can download your M3U list, generate M3U with options URL and reload your list to have channels categorized. If you don’t have access to any dashboard system ask your IPTV provider for M3U with options URL.
