How to find Server Address in M3U Url?

The M3U list is a text file format which contains information regarding the channel list such as the name of the channels, the URL of the channel source and channel reference number divided to different groups of countries for the ease of access. M3U is the most used format for all IPTV devices.

Some applications like “IPTV Smarter” and “GSE Xtream-Codes API” in the setting ask for “Server Address” ,  “Username” and “Password” .

The first part of M3U Url  is the Server name you need (before the “/”) .

  1. I have loaded the M3U url you have provided w/PW on my Apple TV using the SmartIPTV Pro App and has been for over an hour with the message “Downloading Playlist… it will take some time” but it looks like its lost…
    What do you suggest to get this working?

    1. Hi Tony
      We are help center and not a IPTV provider.
      So we didn’t provide you any m3u url, please contact your provider.

  2. Hi. I have all done step by step for Smarters iptv app on Samsung Smart tv several times(Stabiliptv) and its always says to me on the screen “Failed to authorize.”

  3. Is it not the same url on samsung tv?

    It works fine on my pc and my iphone, but on my samsung tv it says ”Authorization Failed for above user” .

    Using the same credentials and url:porr

  4. Hello, I put the iptv smarters application on my samsung tv like this and it gives me an authorization error.

    and putting in front http://smarters.link/………………….. either
    The username and password are logically modified.
    what else could i do?
    in the rest of the devices it works less well on my samsung tv, thank you very much.

        1. First of all check if you downloaded and installed the original app, they are many fake apps in play store these days.
          Then once try to check if you can download your m3u url in a browser to find if it’s a correct one.

  5. I have all done step by step for Smarters iptv app on LG tv several times and its always says to me on the screen “Failed to authorize.”
    How can I go forward from this?

  6. There are several options for the full url, should i use m3u or with options? the difference between them in full url is only the last parts named type and output but where should we put them if theres only 3 spaces to put the address, username and password in the smarters iptv app on an android receiver? how is it going to be any different if we want to choose with options since we cant put these 2 last parts?!

    Also, in the dashboard, under actions and download there are two types to download the playlist HLS and MPEGTS which one to get?! and should we even get them or no need?

    I had a one day trial i got username and password and logged in the dashboard then it expired and i got another trial with new password but when i try to login with it doesnt let me but old pass still logs in!

    1. Better to use m3u with options MPEGTS format.
      With m3u with options you will have channels in separate groups, also will have EPG and picons automatically.

      1. ok but you doesn’t the app download it automatically after logging in with the username and password or do i have to do it from dashboard?

        You didnt answer the first and last paragraph questions in my message!

  7. I have a url (http://tv.xxxx.com:xxx/)
    A user ID
    And a password .
    I have only ben able to get this to work on my phone using smarters iptv pro.
    How can I enter this info correctly on a “smart TV”?
    LG tv uses “smart IPTV” app, but when I try to add my login info on website, it wants me to upload a file. I don’t have a file? I don’t understand the menu etc.
    I tried to enter my url and MAC address for my TV, but I think I need to upload “the file”.
    Thank you

  8. How can i change the url from a .ts extemsion to a m3u? I tried on my iptv app m3u_plus&output=ts but didn’t worked.

  9. Hi
    which server address,
    which username and which code word should I use when I have to log in via my iptv app.
    there are both the codes and username I use when I log in to your website and then line username.
