tvheadend is not able to handle IPTV master urls
many thanks for developing tvheadend, I use this amazing piece of software regularly :-)
One issue I stumpled over is that tvheadend (in contrast to e.g. vlc) does not support IPTV master urls, e.g. used for a prominent German TV channel:
kodinerds-iptv used the direct url
but after the direct url breaks frequently, they reverted back to the master url.
I think the proper fix needs to be implemented in tvheadend.
As a temporary workaround I use a script, maybe it helps others until a proper fix is available:
[email protected]:~$ cat /usr/local/bin/fetch-dasErste.sh #!/bin/sh masterurl=$(wget -O - -o /dev/null http://bit.ly/kn-pipe|grep -A 1 "Erste HD"|grep pipe|cut -f 5 -d " ") url=$(wget -O - -o /dev/null $masterurl|grep index_7|grep -v "[0-9]-b") echo '#EXTM3U #EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="Das Erste HD" tvg-id="ARD.de" group-title="IPTV-D" tvg-logo="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jnk22/kodinerds-iptv/master/logos/tv/daserstehd.png",Das Erste HD pipe:///usr/bin/ffmpeg -loglevel fatal -i' $url '-vcodec copy -acodec copy -metadata service_name=Das\ Erste\ HD -metadata service_provider=IPTV-DE -mpegts_service_type advanced_codec_digital_hdtv -f mpegts pipe:1' >> ~/public_html/dasErsteHD.m3u8 [email protected]:~$

With other words, if you put this m3u8 link in standard m3u playlist,
situation is totally different and chance to work is greater.
How would I add the m3u playlist? As a new network (IPTV automatic network?) like I did with http://bit.ly/kn-pipe in the first place?
