How to set up IPTV?

Before you configure IPTV, you must download the installation file of the program. If the file was downloaded earlier, you need to make sure that when you install the program you have an active Internet connection, otherwise you will not be able to use the automatic settings provided by the provider.

Then you will read the greeting from the installation program and click Next. You will see a list of additional services that can be installed, but it is better to abandon additional services by default. You need to select "Parameter Settings" and uncheck all the checkboxes in front of additional services. Then you need to click "Next." Now you will see a list of programs that should be installed by default. It:

Then you need to click "Install" and wait until the program is installed. As a result of the successful completion of the installation, a corresponding message will appear, then you need to click "Finish".

Player settings

After the program is installed, it must be configured. To do this, you need to launch IP TV Plauer from the desktop or from the Start menu. You will be asked to choose a package, for example, a basic one, but it all depends on your situation. When you select a package, click OK. The player window will start. If everything works, the channels are switched, then no additional settings are needed. Now you know how to set up IPTV. But if no channels appeared, there could be several reasons for this.

First of all, the network card must be registered in the settings, which connects to your provider's Ethernet network. However, you may have several network cards, while the program automatically selects the very first network card.

Secondly, the channels may not appear due to a working VPN connection, which can also be perceived by the player as a network interface. In this case, the VPN connection on top of the local network does not need to be disabled.It's all about choosing a network interface. To find the IP address of the network card, you can open Local Connection Status, or type ipconfig on the command line. Remember the address of your IP card. Then you need to go into the general settings of your player and check what is written there. The address must match what was written on the command line, if this is not the case, change and restart the player. If the player is still not working, does not display the channels, then you need to get into the advanced settings and check the address of the channel list. You also need to make sure that this list is automatically updated.
