M3U List

We recommend the API Line. Please read this manual. If possible, please use API Line instead of M3U list. An API line offers many more functions. Catchup service, MAG devices, Perfect Player with catchup and IMDB info only work with one API line.

1a. Create a list with an external link

  • Click on the button "Add list"  in the dashboard. You can now fill out this form.

    Title of your list

    M3U File Link
    Can be a URL of the provider or leave empty for an local M3U file. Please enter the link with the "m3u_plus" options. "http://server.extension:8080/get.php?username=123USER123& password=123PASS123&type=m3u_plus&output=mpegts". Only with this option will we create groups. Otherwise, the complete list comes in a group

    EPG Timeshift
    EPG Timeshift for the whole list. Ex. -2 or 2. Not all players support this option. Check with the manufacturer if the player supports the M3U tag (tvg-shift)

    Parental code
    Select here the parental control code. This option only affects Smart IPTV and our MAG Portal.

    Here you can enter your own EPG source. You will get a dynamic URL such as "", this URL will be redirected to your source. If you enter a URL here, you will not receive any EPG from us. You should adapt the EPG ID assignment to your EPG source

    EPG Source
    Here you can select the EPG source. Select one or more sources. The last selection "FULL" includes all EPG. It is not recommended to choose this source. The file is very big.
    With a smaller source, the player can process the EPG data faster.

    Parameter - Auto-Sync
    With this setting, your list is synchronized daily with the M3U source. Synchronization is initiated with a download of the list. Works only with an external source (URL)

    Parameter - Don't sync deleted groups
    If you delete groups, they are created again after a new sync. These groups are recognized as new. This setting prevents this. Only the groups you have in your list are synchronized. Useful if you want to reduce the number of channels. A small list is also synced much faster. I recommend this setting

    Parameter - Always overwrite the channel name

    When synchronizing, the editor checks whether the "Channel name" field is empty. If Yes, this field is updated by the channel name of the source. If the field is not empty, the field is not updated. This option always overwrites the Channel Name field.

  • Click on "Save". You get back to the dashboard. Your list will now sync to the server for the first time.

1b. Create a list with an local M3U File

  • Click on the button "Add list"  in the dashboard. You can now fill out this form.
  • Fill out the form as in 1a). Leave the field "M3U File Link" empty and click on "Upload local M3U file. (In the next step)"
  • Click on "Save". You get back to the dashboard.
  • Click on this Icon and upload your m3u file.

2. The dashboard

1 = Synchronize list with the provider
2 = Info. There you will find all download links for this list. (M3U, EPG, etc.)
3 = List settings. (Server url, username, etc.)
4 = Same as No. 1
5 = Same as No. 1 (*)
6 = Same as No. 2
7 = Same as No. 3
8 = Copy list
9 = Backup your list
10 = Restore your list
11 = Delete your list

If you click on the "Title" in the overview you will get the channel editing page.

3. Edit groups and channels (channel editing page)

On this page you can edit your groups and channels.

With the groups you can:

  • Change the order
  • Activate
  • Deactivate (group is not deleted only hidden)
  • Create a new group
  • Delete
  • Change the name of the group
  • Determine if the group is "censored" or not (parental control)
  • Determine whether the name of the group will be overwritten by the provider after synchronization.
  • Group Settings for SS-IPTV App

With the channels you can:

  • Change the order
  • Activate
  • Deactivate (channel is not deleted only hidden)
  • Create a new channel
  • Delete
  • Change the name of the channel
  • Change EPG-ID
  • Change logo url
  • Move the channel to another group


  1. EPG-ID assignment
  2. Sync
    - Sync with Server
    - Sync with Server (Force) **
  3. Picons
    - Use picons from the Xtream EPG source ***

    - Clear all PIcons
  4. Search channels (On this page you can search for specific channel)

(*) Each channel has a unique StreamID. If you have assigned the EPG ID, you can download a file with the assignment. You can import these again for next lists. Each provider has different StreamID. So you can only import this file to the same provider.

(**) With us the lists of providers are cached for 1 hour. Otherwise the firewall at the provider would block us because of too many requests. If you click here, the list will still be loaded directly from the provider. Please use only when needed.

(***) We have a collection of picons linked to our EPG data. If you have assigned the EPG ID and are using our EPG data, you can also download our picons. If you click here, the download url of the picon will be inserted at valid EPG-ID.

Groups control

2 = Unselect all
3 = Sort groups alphanumeric (This operation can not be undone)
4 = Create a new group
5 = Edit group (parental control)
6 = Deactivate group
7 = Delete group
8 = EPG-ID assignment

Channel control

1 = Select all

(*) If you want to replace a part of the channel name, you can use this function. Example: You want to remove  "UK | " on all channels. Enter "UK | " in the Search for field. No entry in the field Replace with. Also note the spaces in the string!
