IPTV: Support for streams with .m3u8 file extention
Can you please add support for streams with .m3u8 extentions?
- Subject changed from Support for streams with .m3u8 file extention to IPTV: Support for streams with .m3u8 file extention
- Target version set to 4.4
Just for "the google", you can already do that yourself with the pipe:// handler as described here: Custom_MPEG-TS_Input
I'm also interested in this feature. Will also have a look at Hanspeters' solution. Thanks
- Status changed from New to Fixed

The code is not much tested and I hope that I didn't break the standard streaming. Anyway, only the first stream is used, others are ignored. v4.1-610-g9f21e59
@perexg .m3u8 is usually used for HLS playlist files so I'm not sure this support is that useful for that use case.
HLS playlist seems to have multiple streams with some attributes. It should work if streams are MPEG-TS (first is selected at the moment). Of course, I would expect that users want to add some "fine" filter to select stream based on bandwidth or any other descriptor - language etc.). But, many sites uses .m3u just for the redirection.
