    After a few noobish days are over I have now created a few playlists through xtreme website. But I am getteing more and more intersted in how the m3u file is beeing used.

    First I watch my stuff from android phone, Smart tv and PC.

    Would be great if someone could point me in the direction of how such a file is built up. Having seen a few this is example of my own edited file (the top of it):

    My own edited file (trying to recreated a Sports group
    #EXTM3U
    #EXTINF:1 tvg-id="" tvg-name="ASTRO SuperSport 1 UK" tvg-logo="" group-title="Sports" parent-code="",ASTRO SuperSport 1 UK
    http://clientportal.link:8080/live/8010.ts
    #EXTINF:2 tvg-id="" tvg-name="ASTRO SuperSport 2 UK" tvg-logo="" group-title="Sports" parent-code="",ASTRO SuperSport 2 UK
    http://clientportal.link:8080/live/9/8011.ts
    #EXTINF:3 tvg-id="" tvg-name="ASTRO SuperSport 3 UK" tvg-logo="" group-title="Sports" parent-code="",ASTRO SuperSport 3 UK

    Then I did recieve from a helpful user on this board the following file including Norwegian group + Premier League group
    #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="" tvg-name="######## Norway ########" tvg-logo="http://secure.clientportal.link/picons/norway.png" group-title="",######## Norway ########
    http://clientportal.link/live/ls1&/13648.ts
    #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="" tvg-name="TV Norge NO" tvg-logo="" group-title="Norway",TV Norge NO
    http://clientportal.link/live/ls/11620.ts
    #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="" tvg-name="TV2 Norge NO" tvg-logo="" group-title="Norway",TV2 Norge NO
    http://clientportal.link/live/ls&/11592.ts
    #EXTINF:-1 tvg-id="" tvg-name="TV 2 Norge NO" tvg-logo="" group-title="Norway",TV 2 Norge NO

    Now I see some nice groupings for this m3u list. Looking into Xtreme i see a
    Group called "empty" with the followin channel: ######## Norway ########

    Editing this title there are some more information like
    Stream URL
    TV Guide Identifier: ######## Premier League ########
    TV Guide Logo

    Is there anybody that could shed some light on the build up for m3u files for me, cause I would love to create my very own perfect list with Norwegian channels, Channels likes Animal PLanet, channels showing Premier League, CL and so on with English/Scandianvian commentary.


    PS: I did alter the links to keep out username/password

    M3U files always start with the same header, a line with just only #EXTM3U
    Then every entry starts with #EXTINF, the number right after the colon is the length of the content. This is -1 to indicate a livestream, which has no length. The tvg-id and tvg-name are to link electronic program guide info from an EPG file the system needs to retrieve from the server. (In our case http://secure.clientportal.link/epg/guide.xml.gz)
    tvg-logo is the url pointing to the icon of the channel.
    You build groups of channels or movies by giving them the same group-title
    The name of the channel is then the last info after the comma in the line (after the group-title in this case)
    The whole next line tells the system where to load the content from

    Every channel has only 2 lines. One with the #EXTINF and one with the URL to get the content from.

    That's basically it.
    There are a few more parameters you can put in the #EXTINF line, for pincode locked content for instance. I'd suggest to google that.

    Cheers, Mercado
