Who is DojimeIPTV.Net?
DojimeIPTV.Net is a premium service provider for IPTV Streaming subscriptions, so we provide access into global IPTV streaming services from our servers in Europe. We do not own the streaming sources, nor download or archive the streams into digital storage, in any form whatsoever. We started with customising DreamBoxes back in 2008 but it was not until 2013 that we started to tinker with IPTV streamings. We launched into IPTV streaming in mid-2014 and we have been providing streaming services since.
This is our detailed DojimeIPTV.Net FAQ on IPTV Streaming that covers quite a lot of very relevant informational details and tips that you will need to know about IPTV streaming.
How is the quality?
Most channels are in HD (720p) or even FHD (1080p) and 4K FHD quality. But there are a lot of SD (Standard Definition TV) channels if HD is not available. More HD, FHD and 4K channels are being constantly added as we move forward.
Where can I watch?
Because IPTV works over an internet connection, all you need is a device (be it a desktop computer / laptop, android-based TV device, tablet or smartphone) and a hard-wired LAN, strong Wi-fi or cellular connection (3G/4G/LTE). From our experiences, you are much better off on wired Ethernet unless your Internet connection is nothing short of a superlative consistent performance of at least 30Mbps or higher. So you can watch IPTV streaming while on holiday, in a train, or in the car, etc. If you are constantly on travel, then placing a subscription onto a mobile device eg. smartphone or tablet works so good.
Can I watch ‘live’ sports?
Absolutely Yes! Almost all good sports channels are included like, Sky, Fox, BEIN, NBCSN, CBS Sports, Star Sports, Setanta, MBC Sports, OSN Sports, Sky Net and all other major broadcasters. So you never have to miss your favorite game again.
What internet speed do I need?
According to the Netflix streaming website, Netflix recommends that you have at least a 5Mbps (Megabit per second) stream to support HD video. The breakdown is as follows:
0.5 Megabits per second – Required broadband connection speed
1.5 Megabits per second – Recommended broadband connection speed
3.0 Megabits per second – Recommended for SD quality (420p)
5.0 Megabits per second – Recommended for HD quality (720p or 1080p)
25 Megabits per second – Recommended for Ultra HD quality (4K UHD)
However, this DOES NOT MEAN overall Internet speed required from your internet service provider (ISP).
MORE DEVICES = MORE BANDWIDTH
If your home internet connection, for example, is at 100 Mbps – or 100 Megabits per second. That is the maximum bandwidth speed available to your home from your ISP.
From there, it goes into your router, which then sends it out to a wired PC and wirelessly to a perhaps a Chromebook, three smartphones, two tablets, two Android Wear watches, two wireless printers, a Western Digital MyCloud NAS and a gaggle of streaming media devices, all connected to your home network.
All of these devices are accessing the network, talking to each other, at the same time.
So how much of that 100 Mbps do you think eventually is getting to your TV screen when you are trying to watch Daredevil in 4K? This example shows you just how easy it is to have your bandwidth taken up and thus, slow down your network speeds.
Thus, do make sure you have an Internet connection that is fast enough to support all of your devices, and a router for streaming TV that won’t get bogged down directing all of that traffic.
Because of the probable real-life scenario as per described above for your home network, you will probably need at least a consistent 16Mbps (2MB/s) at minimum for SD; a very stable 30Mbps or higher (3.75MB/s+) connection for HD; and 50Mbps or higher (6.25MB/s+) for FHD. For 4K FHD streamings, it will be at least 80Mbps (10MB/s) or higher. A wired Ethernet cable connection is strongly recommended. In contrast, Wi-fi connections may drop signals, so then you may get a little buffering for a few seconds. Naturally, a very good high performance Wi-fi router may prevent that, of course. Finally, a more than decent Internet service provider serving your location, to provide you the best bandwidth quality connecting to our servers in Europe.
A MegaByte per second (MB/s) is a non-standard metric for network throughput, which is nevertheless often used due to its convenience since most file sizes are in MB, GB, etc.
Mbps is often the unit in which fibre optic, broadband, LAN or DSL connections will be described in. Most likely you have a 100 Mbps (bandwidth) LAN card on your computer, or a 1 Gbps (bandwidth) or 10 Gbps (bandwidth) LAN cards as well. Typical home connections usually range between 10 – 300 Mbps (bandwidth) in their home networks.

What about buffering issues on channels?
We have been into this for past many years and thus, our servers are constantly improving over the years. So much so that our video streaming services are blowing many of our competitions away. Nearly 99% of our streamings (in SD, HD, FHD, 4K resolutions) are buffer-free, and our inhouse support ticket reporting and regular maintenance resolves troubled channels fast. From our experiences, the main reasons for buffering problem lies with the following usual suspecting factors, not necessarily in order of merit:
- Telco’s Internet speed quality from Europe to your location? Eg. must range between a minimum of 16Mbps to as high as 50+Mbps or higher actual bandwidth throughput. Read our FAQ for bandwidth throughput expectations in relation to SD, HD, FHD, 4K video resolutions.
- Extreme high latency rating from your telco to our Europe servers?
- Choice of media devices eg. either a slow or low spec laptop, tablet, android TV box?
- Hardware specs of media device / TV Box / Computer ie. Slow CPU? Device has 2GB or more RAM?
- Is the media device / TV Box connected to Internet/network via 100Mbps on wired Ethernet LAN port?
- Hardware media device specs on OS version? Is it 4K capable (optional)?
- Slow Wi-Fi connection? Generally, please try not to rely on Wi-Fi, instead go for wired LAN connections.
- Media device connection to home network – is it wired or wireless? High speed 100Mbps / 1Gbps?
- What is the ACTUAL bandwidth throughput from your router to the media device? Get a fast router eg. Asus Brand, that can really help.
- Software configuration / settings / tuning of the media player app in use ie. VLC, Smarters Pro, GSE, etc.
- Slow or bad VPN service? If exists – will need a better / faster one or need a reconfiguration fix.
Finally, if all above fails to resolve buffering issue, then it is most certainly your telco provider may be inherently filtering and / or blocking your incoming iptv streams, hence the need for a good, strong and fast VPN (read about our VPN recommendations blog article).
May 5th 2020 Update – DojiMeIPTV now has a built-in Free VPN feature in our users dashboard login accounts. We now have a VPN functionality that is exclusively developed for the sole use with our paid subscriptions absolutely FREE, especially for OTT’s XCIPTV App for Android OS and iPhone IOS platforms.https://dojimeiptv.net/how-to-configure-xciptv-with-free-vpn/
I have a question or problem, what to do?
You can fill in the contact form with your question or inquiries. For tech support issues, send a support ticket through your Dashboard login account to our internal tech support contact channel. Alternatively, send a support email to our support team and they will help you within a a short interval after your account verification.

Can I use it on more then one device? What kind of devices are supported?
Yes you can, but NOT at the same time. If the servers detect that you are using the same subscription account on more then one device at the same time (means watching the IPTV streams simultaneously), your account will be suspended immediately. If you wish to do that, you will need to get another subscription for the other device, and so on.
We support all kinds of devices such as Smart TVs, MAG BOX (eg. 250, 254, 256, 322, 349w3, 351 -4K), Dreamlink, FormulerZ, Avov, Smart Phones (Android and iOS), Android-based TV Boxes, Apple TV, E2 Boxes (DreamBox, Vu+ etc), PCs / laptops, VLC and XBMC/KODI are the supported platforms. However, our own past experiences and expertise lies with Windows-based PCs/laptops, almost all manners of Android-based devices ie. TV Boxes, smartphones and tablets.
The fastest way to test your streams is to use VLC Player software installed on your desktop PC or laptop. We have a user guide PDF on how to configure your resultant m3u url link (aka. line statement) or resultant m3u playlist file for VLC Player software installed for Windows on desktop PCs / laptops, for a quick setup and testing.
In most cases, the best and most convenient hardware device to go for would be an Android-based TV Box. We strongly recommend getting a good reliable Android-based TV Box that comes with at least 2GB RAM or better (with at least 8Gb ROM or better), a HDMI connection, at least a 100Mbps or 1Gbps LAN Ethernet port, 2 USB slots (for remote keypad or mouse, or a USB thumbdrive as an option), and with Google PlayStore installed.
Do I need to invest into a VPN to make use of this service?
The system network is designed to work seamlessly via proper standard Internet HTTP protocols, so you only need to be more concerned with the quality of the Internet bandwidth that you are getting from your local Internet service providers. So, there is no need to use VPN on this service.
However, should you feel the need to do so or suspect that your telco provider may be filtering / blocking your incoming streams, please read our blog article in regards to using VPNs for streaming.
Update: As of 15th Nov 2019, due to increasing ISP blocking of iptv streamings, VPNs are now fully supported on our platform. Now more than ever, users need to deploy VPNs to properly protect their streaming activities from prying eyes and their own Internet telco providers .
In addition, we are now the only IPTV streaming provider that provides FREE VPN feature with our streaming services to our subscribers exclusively!– Admin

Basic Glossary for IPTV Newbies
What is IPTV Service?
Internet Protocol television or IPTV, is the delivery of television content over Internet Protocol (IP) networks. IPTV is widely deployed in subscriber-based telecommunications networks with high-speed access channels into end-user premises via set-top boxes or other customer-premises equipment.
What is M3U, a M3U Playlist URL and a EPG URL?
M3U stands for MP3 URL. It is a format mostly associated with audio playlists but has since expanded to contain visual information and can be used for multimedia files. Multimedia players use M3U files to queue files for playback. A M3U file with the M3U file extension is an Audio Playlist file that stands for MP3 URL, and as such, isn’t an actual audio file in and of itself. An M3U file just points to audio/video files so that a media player can queue them for playback.
M3U playlist URL is a ‘single-line statement’ that contains all the info for your IPTV streams. It can come in either MPEGTS or HLS format, ie. with a text ending of either ‘=ts’ or ‘=m3u8’ respectively. Read up on our blog article about MPEGTS vs HLS formats.
EPG URL is the program data for those IPTV streams. EPG stands for Electronic Program Guide and is the same as a TV guide that you would view on a cable TV box.
