Catchup settings

Perfect Player IPTV app (v1.4.3b5 and higher) supports such catchup tags:

  • catchup – catchup type
  • catchup-source – URL or a part of URL used to generate archive URL
  • catchup-days – the number of archived days on the server (default is not limited)

Catchup types:

  • defaultcatchup-source tag completely describes archive URL
  • appendcatchup-source tag value will be added at the end of channel URL to get  archive URL
  • xc – ‘Xtream-Codes’ server (catchup-source can be used to manually set additional time shift in hours)
  • ez-ts – ‘Ezserver’ time-shift (catchup-source must contain DVR buffer size in minutes; catchup-days tag is ignored)

Catchup source variables:

    • ${start} – archive start time in Unix Timestamp Format
    • ${timestamp} – current time in Unix Timestamp Format
    • ${offset} – offset from current time in seconds


Catchup tags can be specified in playlist URL:|catchup="append" catchup-source="?timeshift=${start}&timenow=${timestamp}" catchup-days="5"|catchup=xc|catchup=ez-ts catchup-source=240

in playlist header:

#EXTM3U catchup="append" catchup-source="?utc=${start}&lutc=${timestamp}"

and for each individual channel in playlist:

#EXTINF:0 catchup="default" catchup-source="${start}&lutc=${timestamp}" catchup-days=3,Channel1

Obviously, new catchup types will be added in the next app releases.

If you can provide us with a temporary server account with a new catchup type, this will be used to test and implement it in the next updates. Thanks for support!
