How to configure IPTV Smarters on Android Devices?
IPTV Smarters Pro
IPTV Smarters Pro is a live TV application which allows the user to watch Live TV, VOD and Series on any of the Android-based powered devices. It includes Android Mobiles, Android TV Boxes, Firesticks, and other android smart devices. The interface of the app is as simple as possible. All you need to do is to enter the M3U Playlist files or streaming URLs and start streaming. Here comes the question, what are these M3U Playlist Files and streaming URLs? How should I insert them?
M3U Playlist Files
We have previous recent blog articles on how to use M3U Playlist files to configure them to use with media players like VLC, GSE, IPTV players, so we will not spend way to much in discussing about that in this article. So you can reference them via this link here.
Nearly most IPTV service providers should provide the feature for streaming URLs. The contents which you are surfing are hosted in a remote server and shared via these streaming URLs. In paid IPTV services (such as DojimeIPTV), these URLs are encrypted and shared as a package with the user. And this package is decoded in the client application and allows the user to stream the content. Lots of other applications access the same URLs in a different timeline and fetch its content. We can use the streaming players to fetch the same contents. Some of the application to fetch those contents are Kodi, Mobdro, VLC, and any other streaming Player.
Since these streaming URLs contents are ever changing on a daily interval basis, you need an updated one to stream the contents. So the previous manual method of applying the M3U playlist file won’t work as it is manual in nature; ie. you need to insert the URL of the latest M3U file version. We had made past blog guides on what is M3U file and how to install it in our previous blog articles. Follow the method described in the guide, download the file. And insert the download link or you can directly add the M3U file to stream the content directly.
If your IPTV service provider provides a streaming URL as we do, configuring for it would be a piece of cake. Let’s proceed to the setup/configuration process.
How to configure IPTV Smarters for Streaming URLs on Android Devices
IPTV Smarters App is an Android Application based on Xtream Codes for End-Users that provides the facility to watch Live TV, VOD, Series & TV Catchup on their Android Devices (Mobiles, Android TV Boxes, Fire TV Stick etc.).
There are 2 ways of adding a profile/user:-

Load your Playlist via File/URL: You will need to enter your Server URL that is provided by your IPTV service provider.
Load your Playlist via API: You will need to enter your Username, Password and IPTV Server URL
Example line: http://example:80/get.php?username=xxxxxx&password=yyyyyy&type=m3u_plus&output=ts)
- Any Name, for example – IPTV Community

- Password: yyyyyy
- Link: http://example: 8080 (Please put in your own url as provided by your IPTV vendor)
IPTV Smarters Pro works perfectly on most Android TV devices. If you have problems with it, they are most likely to be caused by entering your credentials incorrectly. Check that you have entered them exactly as in your line with no spaces. Check the upper/lower cases.
Here you can setup auto-start on Boot-up, show full EPG, active subtitles, set user agent or change the language.
EPG Time Shift: Default it is 0.
Stream Format: Can save it as MPEGTS (.ts format) or HLS (.m3u8) format.
Time Format: Default is 24 hours, can change it to 12 hours.
EPG Timeline: Default is show All channels. (leave it like this)
Automation: Do not change as well.
Set Parental Password: In case if you’ve got kids at home.
Suggest keeping default settings at Software Decoder; in case of problems then choose Hardware Decoder.
Is IPTV Smarters Pro worth it, what are the beneficial features?
Every user has this question on their mind. Why should I spend so much time on this? Isn’t there any better way? The way we see it, here are a number of GOOD reasons why you should consider using this app on your Android device.
b) It worked almost flawlessly if it is configured correctly
c) If configured to work with a streaming URL link from IPTV service provider (like as what we provide at DojimeIPTV.Net), the UI (user interfacing) menu is intuitive and easy to navigate, as well as works really well in terms of channels switching and EPG installs for all TV channels and movie-on-demand titles from your IPTV service provider.
d) For streaming URLs, this is a case of ‘one-time configuration’ only, and there is no need to refresh or constantly update the M3U playlist file.
e) The streaming URLs’ channels and EPG will be constantly auto-updated by the IPTV service provider automatically, hence one do not need to do anything more. EPG is an on-screen menu that allows the viewer to navigate the available channels and also choose to view a set of channels by genre.
Well, these are the steps to install IPTV Smarters Pro on the various Android devices, most especially for Android-based TV Boxes. Hope the use and illustrations of IPTV Smarters Pro are clear.
