IPTV Smarters Player is considered to be one of the best IPTV players for Samsung Tizen OS, unlike other apps, it comes with the easiest user interface, and its features will allow you to enjoy an enhanced streaming experience in comparison to other IPTV players.
Luckily IPTV Smarters Pro is still available on the Samsung APP store. It will not require you to go through any additional steps to sideload it like Smart IPTV, which is an example of a popular IPTV player for Samsung that got removed without prior notice.
Part-1 Download/install IPTV Smarters from Samsung app store
before starting to search for this app on your device, keep in mind that this app according to the developer is only available on the USA web store and you need to first change your Tv location from the settings in order to find it.
changing your TV location is not that difficult task at all, all you have to do is go to the settings and look for country or location settings, click on it and choose the USA.
After that search for IPTV Smarters Player and click on install
Important note: Although IPTV Smarters Player is still available on the Samsung APP Store but getting a Firestick or another streaming device like an NVidia Shield will give you more options because the Samsung version has so limited options, there is no search or any real settings this can make the browsing experience a frustration.
a streaming device like Chromecast with google tv or Firestick will give you access to the Android version which comes with all the features not to mention that you will be able to use other great players like Tivimate and download VPN apps.
Part-2: Connect to your IPTV provider
depending on whether you already have a subscription with an IPTV provider or yet to get it, they all send you some links to connect to their servers, in this part I will explain to you how you can use this info to get access to the channels using your IPTV player.
Note: if you don’t already have a subscription with an IPTV provider you can check this guide on how to choose the best IPTV provider for your needs.
almost all IPTV providers will send you an m3u link, EPG link, and Xtream codes API and IPTV Smarters Player supports them all to properly use this info follow along with the steps below.
1- Open IPTV Smarters
like any other app click on its Icon to open it, you will find it available with the rest of your installed apps.
2- Accept the terms
if you like you can read the full page which is something recommended, but you will not be able to use the app unless you accept the terms, take your time reading them then click accept.
3- Choose Xtream Codes API
in this page you will find many options
- Load Your Playlist Or file URL: ( another way to say m3u)
- Load data from your device: the m3u file not recommended
- Login with Xtream Codes API ( Top Recommended )
- PLay a single stream
choose the Xtream codes API which in my opinion is the best way to connect to your provider server.
4- Fill-in your account info
as I said earlier your IPTV providers will send you some links, most likly an m3u link and an EPG link.
if you don’t see the Xtream Codes with the details don’t worry because you can easily extract it from the m3u link using this method.
the m3u link is always structured like this http://line.iptvdomain.com/get.php?username=XXXXX&password=XXXXX&type=m3u
if you like to get the Xtream Codes break down the link as follows.
- URL: is this part ( http://line.iptvdomain.com )
- Username: as you can tell is the XXXX after ?username=
- Password: the same &password=XXXXX
Note: for the username and password copy only the XXXXX part ****which in your case will be random numbers and letters
after writing everything double check if you made any typos and click on add user.
5- Wait until IPTV Smarters Player downloads all the channels.
this will take only 1-4 minutes depending on your internet speed and how many channels you’re IPTV provider has given you access to.
you will see something like this.
6- Click on live TV
as you can tell IPTV Smarters Pro Interface makes it easy to navigate the content, you have a separate section for live TV and the same for movies and series.
This a common error and it could happen for various reasons.
1- Your ISP is applying restrcitions
if this is your first time connecting and you started getting this error that will be most likely because of your ISP which is applying restrictions on your IPTV providers, keep in mind that those restrictions are applied mainly on the most popular IPTV services. and sometimes they can be applied only to one type of content like the VOD, which is easier to analyze for the ISP and identify.
the only fix for this problem is using a VPN service, you can check this article if you like to have a better idea of what are the best VPN services for IPTV and how you can properly use them.
2- you are using it on multiple devices at the same time
as you already know your subscription will most likely come with one connection only this means that you can use it on one single device at any given time.
make sure to log out from any other IPTV player you’ve previously used this should eliminate the one connection limit to be the cause.
3- You’re using a poor VPN service
yes not all VPN services are the same and you should always use the one with the best encryption, it doesn’t matter how many servers they have, all of what you’re looking for is good speed and strong encryption to bypass the restrictions from your ISP which in this case can’t analyze the content and identify if it’s IPTV or Not.
4- your proider server is down
it is a normal part of IPTV to get a temporary downtime, due to many reasons like attacks on the server, poor infostructure, overload on the streaming, maintenance, and updates…
if you tried everything and still have this issue, send a message to your provider and ask if they’re experiencing any issues in the server they should let you know if other customers have reported this or in case they’re doing maintenance.
5- you’re connecting from a different country
some IPTV servers have a country lock, and the first one you connect from becomes your account default country, which means if you ever tried to connect from an IP address that is within another country your connection will get blocked automatically.
you can easily test if this is the case by connecting on the VPN from the first country or asking your IPTV provider.
Although IPTV Smarters is free for you, providers need to pay a fee to the company to authorize the connection to their servers ( only on LG and Samsung operating systems ).
if you’re getting this error, contact your IPTV provider and ask them to provide you with the link that they have registered with on IPTV Smarters’ official website.
if the link didn’t help, you will have to use another IPTV player or get a firestick because this issue is only on LG Web OS and Samsung Tizen operating systems.
Another common issue which you can easily fix by refreshing the channels list, follow along with the screenshots below to manually redownload the channels.
this could be either ISP blocking the copyrighted connected because it’s much easier for their system to analyze over live TV or your IPTV provider have problems in the VOD contact them and check if this is the case.
Just like the case of the live channels, the EPG could also don’t get successfully downloaded and all you need to do is update the TV guide as shown on the screenshot below.
