Make sure you get an IPTV subscription from us to enjoy the best that IPTV has to offer at low prices.

 

Xtream Codes And VLC Player

Normally there is no way to link Xtream Codes and VLC Media Player together as VLC has not been made with with with way to read off Xtream Codes API like apps such as IPTV Smarters android app can.

So we looked into this and found there is a workaround for anyone else who has the same problem where you want to watch IPTV on VLC but don’t have an M3U URL and only a username, password, and server URL forcing you to use the Xtream Codes API.

How To Get Xtream Codes IPTVWorking On VLC Media Player

If you are with an IPTV provider who refuses to send you the M3U URL but you have the username, password, and server URL you will need to put the information they sent on notepad as we will do some modifying to it.

So we will make some dummy information below then show you how to get it working with VLC.

Pretend we just got a subscription from an IPTV supplier and they sent us this information below only

IPTV Server URL = http://awesome-iptv-server.com:25421

Username = awesomeiptv

Password = coolpassword

With the example above you would need to put what your details from your IPTV provider are on a notepad so you have it ready to modify.

Next, you will want to copy this URL below and put it in the same notepad on your laptop or PC.

http://server:port/get.php?username=<your username>&password=<your password>&type=m3u_plus&output=ts

Now you will change the works server:port and the username and password section between the < > so using our example below we have highlighted in red which sections we have just added.

http://awesome-iptv-server.com:25421/get.php?username=awesomeiptv&password=coolpassword&type=m3u_plus&output=ts

Now once you have done the above you will have a full working M3U URL which your provider refused to give you so you can now get it working with VLC media player.
