What is playlist and where can I get it?
Playlist is a file that contains info about channels and videos. Such as channel name, stream URL, logo URL, matching EPG channel name, etc.
Supported playlist formats are M3U and XSPF.
You can ask playlist URL either from your local internet provider (if he provides IPTV service) or find free/paid playlists on internet.
All or some of my channels do not play or have playback issues (Android)
Select different Decoder type in Settings (Playback->Decoder).
If you see notification message, the app must be restarted to apply changes.
What are the different Decoder types? (Android)

Native: Uses decoding abilities implemented in device firmware.
Hardware: Software implementation with hardware video decoding on supported devices.
Software: Completely software implementation.
HW+: Supports only hardware accelerated decoding. Has teletext subtitles support.
What is EPG and where can I get it?
EPG is a file that contains programmes description for channels.
Supported EPG formats are XMLTV (can be gz, xz, zip or plain) and JTV.
IPTV provider may have prepared EPG source.
You can try to find prepared EPGs for different channels/countries on internet.
Also, there is a great free tool for generating XMLTV EPG: WebGrab+Plus
WebGrab+Plus team spend much time and resources to maintain and develop this service. Please, support them to keep EPG free, as many other EPG providers are using WebGrab+Plus.

|Serbia, Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia||http://rytecepg.ipservers.eu/epg_data/rytecSRB_HRV_Basic.xz
EPG data stopped showing after several days (Android)
You can try to select another Download case for EPG source in Settings (General->EPG). Default is Download if no data on current date.
During update EPG data can be either downloaded or just reloaded from previously downloaded data. See notification message (EPG loaded or EPG downloaded).
Example: EPG downloaded (125) – EPG was downloaded, 125 EPG channels matched with playlist channels.
You can force EPG downloading by means of using ‘Down‘ key (instead of ‘Ok‘) when cursor is on ‘Update‘ button.

How can I change video options?

Deinterlacing, Aspect ratio, Zoom mode, Audio track, Subtitles.
Settings are saved automatically for this video. Press Save as defaults option to save currently selected settings as defaults for all videos with Default video option values.
I have frequent buffering during playback
In the most cases the problem is on server side. IPTV provider does not provide enough server performance/bandwidth to keep flowless playback for all of his clients. The issue is mostly noticeable in prime time, when most users are watching TV at the same time.
- Use more stable streams (playlist/IPTV provider)
- Check your network bandwidth
- Use wired Ethernet connection (not Wi-Fi) if available
- Try to select different Buffer size and Decoder
- For unstable streams use “Pause” state to fill buffer in advance

Currently, Full version features:
- No Ads
- “Play last channel at startup” option available
- “Preview” option available
(Show playing channel preview and additional EPG info in all view modes)

More features will be added on updates. Thank you for support!Back to Index
