    I had to return to the previous version. The program stops right after opening it, when trying to check/download one of my playlists.

    can you please check what can be wrong? I haven’t changed anything in my source playlists

    • nikman says:

      I don’t know why it stops. You can try debug logging. Write in terminal:
      “C:\Program Files\PerfectPlayer\PerfectPlayer.exe” >> d:\pp_logs.txt 2>&1
      Then send me pp_logs.txt file.

      Probably, it is local playlist. Local playlists path format changed to more human readable in v1.1.4. You need to reassign such playlists.
      At last, you can try to modify settings.xml to fix this issue. It is in … \AppData\Roaming\PerfectPlayer\ directory.

    why doesn’t this epg works

    • nikman says:

      It is well known buggy Portuguese EPG. This EPG file has XML formatting errors:
      1) Missed quote after encoding name
      2) & charechters must be changed to &аmp;
      I hope someone can ask EPG creator to fix it.

    I try android version and its work flawless.But in pc version can’t get a picture.Same playlist and epg work flawless in android. Here import working,epg working,but when i choose chanel just start to buffering and no pic. Same m3u i play with pot player ,kodi..whats wrong

    • nikman says:

      Hard to say. Maybe, some installed in system codecs conflict or currently unsupported on PC version streams format.

      • Billy says:

        same issue here and also others i know cant get it to work, same m3u works on vlc player

      • Reg says:

        Works great on android ……..BUT on two Win10 computers everything loads Ok links and EPG. Selecting any stream fails. I seen no option to control any streaming options.

    • Stef says:

      Same here, nothing is working with the windows player… not streaming and not EPG. Other programs (which are not appealing to me) are working flawless with my m3u file.

  7. abdel says:

  8. IPTVMan says:


    the LOCK CHANNEL seems to not work with the normal version of the APP.
    i locked some channel and when i select them again thear are cleared !
    i want to lock the ADULT Channels… could you please advice?


    • nikman says:

      No such option on PC version.

      On Android version you need to specify: Settings->GUI->PIN code

  9. IPTVMan says:

    Thanks for the reply, i meant the android version… i have set a PIN Code..but when i lock a channel it shows the Lock Symbol on the menu but once i click on the channel the lock gets cleared automatically and immediately, am i missing something here?

    so how can i lock the channel?


    • nikman says:

      When you enter correct PIN-code “unlocked” status is maintained for about 10 min or until restart. So, you don’t need to enter PIN-code on each channel startup.

  10. IPTVMan says:

    thats it 🙂
    thx, it worked like a charm


  11. Chuck says:

    Love this app! Does this app player play only .ts streams?
    I ask because I’m working on a plugin and I’m having issues on seeing .mp4 and .avi video streams.

  12. in windows 10 it doesn’t open on first install so nothing has been loaded also tried win 8 compatibility mode and no change

  14. theforgedigital says:

    • Kevin D Jessen says:

      Same issue for months with me. PP works perfectly on Fire Stick, Android device, but on WIndows, playlist loads, EPG loads, but red circle and won’t connect. And mine are channels, same ones that work on fire stick and android. What gives?

  15. IPTVSA says:

    Hi Team, I am facing the below error for some of the channels.

    “Error Creating graph: Channel Name: HTTPStreamingSource: Failed to set up source : Timeout! Could not determine PES PID’s”

    Please help me how to fix it , is there any way to disable the PES PID’s.

  21. Antonio Ruggeri says:

    hi nik, i have a problem, when i launch first time the program ( on windows 10 1709 x64) i can add playlist url and then load channel , but after first time , when i launch it again the program go in freeze and i must force to close it. the same problem when add epg url, the program start load epg but when the window show 100% it freeze.
    help me please

    • M C says:

      I also have this problem. I suspect it has something to do with the very large list of channels? Once it freezes, i have to uninstall the program including the app data then re-install. It works like this everytime, so now i must look for an alternate player?

  22. Procio BC says:

    • nikman says:

      Some HLS (m3u8) stream types could be not supported by Windows version.

      If you have the ability to use TS streasm (output=ts instead of output=hls) this should work fine.

  23. jamie says:

    hello i can’t even load perfect player up on even when I cilck on both icons!!.any clues how I fix it asap.!

  24. Hans says:


    Awesome work here. Is there any way we can donate to you or otherwise contribute?

  25. Chris says:

    is it possible to watch youtube videos through a m3u file in perfect player. my playlist file works fine in vlc player but can’t get it to work in perfect player. I would prefer to use Perfect Player if possible

    • nikman says:

      It’s not allowed to watch YouTube videos anywhere outsize their official YouTube app.

  26. Leighton Cooper says:

    I get an app not installed error on my iptv apk on firestick. It worked fine on the previous player, Any ideas why?

    • nikman says:

      You should install Perfect Player IPTV app from Amazon AppStore into Fire TV device.

  27. Jay says:

    does this version support catch-up? thank you.

  28. Jimbo says:

    I’m not sure what has happened to this Windows version of PP but I cannot get it to play anything anymore. My playlist and epg data files both load ok, but when I try to play a channel, it simply doesn’t play. This is on a Windows 10 Pro 64-bit laptop.. I have also completely uninstalled and reinstalled the program several times, with the same result. I’m not sure if it is dependent on something else, or if Windows updates have somehow broken this program, but it would be nice if it worked at all. The other problem is that I cannot get the playlist and epg to link, so I have to manually set every channel to it’s epg data, which is somewhat tedious to say the least… I’m using Vader’s tv playlist & epg data, which uses .ts streams.

  29. Hey Nikman, Do you think we could get an update to the Windows player at some point? It would be nice to get some of the features from the mobile client.

  30. Svetloslav Petkov says:

    Guys, just stop complaining about the Windows version. It is obvious, this developer will not go forward with the project. And that’s fine, since there are many viable alternatives, which are totally free and work out of the box. In Windows store you can get MyIPTV. Also NextPVR with LAV filters is a very polished product. Finally SimpleIPTV, or the IP-TV player won’t disappoint you. You can even go to Kodi, although that last one is somewhat clunky. IPTV within the Kodi project is more of an addition, than a main course. With each of the above options you need an average time of 20min to get acquainted with and that’s it. You can still use Perfect Player on Android if you wish. Android has plenty to choose from.

  31. Preciso de ajuda, meu Perfect Player trava ao abrir. O que devo fazer?

  32. m3u iptv says:

    In windows 10 student version I can’t install. I tried two times but they give me an error.

  33. Dinh Tan says:

    I love this App. It is a good app that I use to stream Online Television.
    If developers can combine VLC plugins into this app, this app will be much strong and can stream many file format like .m3u, http://.. etc

  34. ExinDesign says:

    The program would have been ok if it was not for the 720p image that was scarcely cropped, I think it’s a LAV codec problem and the program is written in poor java. On VLC, PotPlayer the image I have perfect and very fast and here pitifully weak. It is a pity because the program looked nice

  35. Does anyone has a copy of perfect player 1.1.4 for pc?
    Please share a link.

  36. bst says:

    Hi, when are you going to update PC version, it would be great to have a version like android version.
    PC version needs an update

  37. Istvan says:

    btw. thx for a wonderful app!

  38. Goodsent says:

    Any idea when you will be updating the Windows version of Perfect Player?

  39. afrob says:

    I always get a red circle when I want to open vod what can that be

  40. LTSpec says:

    the PC version of Perfect Player is absolute thrash, works 1st time i load anything, if i close the program and open it again it just freezes, if you were going to release this thrash might as well not release a pc version ok? thanks.

    • Jair Wilson says:

      The Windows version has been discontinued, use BlueStacks (any emulator will do) and install the Android version.

  41. hassan says:
