How to setup IPTV Smarters Pro with my IPTV provider
IPTV Smarters Player app makes connecting to your IPTV provider an easy task you can follow along with the steps below to successfully connect to your IPTV provider.
note: if you don’t already have a subscription with an IPTV provider I will highly recommend you to check this guide on how you can choose the best IPTV provider for your needs, I’ve also included some recommendations on providers that I am currently using.
1- Open IPTV Smarters Player
to start the configuration, search for the app that you’ve just installed on you Apple TV it comes with the name of IPTV Smarters click on the app icon to open it.
3- Choose Xtream Codes API
after accepting the terms you will see the login dashboard, which will give you the option to connect to your IPTV provider using any method you like.
I will recommend you to go with the Xtream Codes API because it is faster when it comes to updating the channels list and the EPG is integrated with it.
4- Enter your account details
most IPTV providers will send you the m3u you link and the EPG link, if you don’t see the Xtream Codes API don’t worry because you can easily extract it from the m3u link using this method.
your provider will give a link that look very similar to this.
- URL: is the first part: http://line.iptvdomain.com/
- Username: is the XXXXX after ?username=, in your case they will be some random charecters
- Passwrod: the same as the username the XXXXX part after &password=
before clicking on add user make sure to double check if you made any typo because if you missed one letter or a number you will not connect to the server.
5- Wait until the app loads the channels
if you’ve entered everything in the right order the IPTV player will automatically start to download the channels which will take from 1 to 4 minutes depending on how fast your connection.
6- Click on live TV and Start Browsing
after IPTV Smarters complete downloading the channels you will be redirected to the app dashboard where you can access the connected as you can see from the image below everything is well organized and you can access both of the live TV or the VOD ( series and movies ) if your provider has given you access to.
The playback error is a common error in IPTV Smarters Pro, that doesn’t mean that the issue is from the IPTV player itself but what I mean is that it can happen for multiple reasons.
- ISP restrictions.
- Connecting from a different country than your account default country.
- server issues
the best way to idetify the proplem source is first connect to the VPN and choose the first country you have been always connecting from if this didn’t help contact your IPTV provider and ask them if they have any technical issues at the moment.
Note: make sure to check different channels if the ISP was the problem all channels should not work but if you’re getting this only on a few channels send their names to your IPTV provider to restart them.
this is another common problem where you connect to the server and no channels are being displayed.
luckily it’s easy to fix by using refresh the channels list option.
IPTV Smarters player is a great app that you can find almost on any operating system including Apple TV, it comes with many premium features that will give you an enhanced streaming experience, if you like to get the most out of this app you click check this guide where I’ve reviewed all of what IPTV Smarters Pro has to offer.
- IPTV Smarters pro full review.
Love the app but can’t load the pro model on the Apple TV. So there is no favourites or search for series. Makes it tough to sort through
App needs to be updated for Apple TV. Paid for Pro version and it basic on Apple TV
Agreed, the app is fine on iPad but not so great on Apple TV. There is less functionality and the guide isn’t the best looking or easiest to use. But in comparison to some other paid IPTV apps, SMARTERS gets the job done in no frills fashion.
In the apple tv app how do I search for a tv series. Is there a way to search?
Remote functionality is terrible on Apple TV. It’s not responsive at all.
Any hints on using the remote to navigate the Apple TV all? Going from full screen, using menu, it’s near impossible to find the cursor to select the back arrow to see the previous screen. Does anyone know how to highlight it or ‘Done’ so I can at least see if to move. Thanks in advance for any help.
Is there a way to go through a TV guide and not the channels on an Apple TV?
Unfortunately, not all features are available on the Apple TV version.
