What is Stream?

Our stream is LIVE streaming based on the HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) protocol, making it possible to easily embed live content in your digital signage. Most commonly the stream plugin is used for following scenarios:

  • Stream an IPTV channel
  • Stream live feed from an IP camera
  • Stream a video file

Options

  • MIMI type – Choose between MPEG-URL or dash+xml
  • Preload Stream – The player starts loading the stream before it is shown so that when the slide is shown, it will play right away. If the stream is a video that you want to play from the beginning, you can disable this option.
  • Muted – Activate to turn sound off

FAQ

Where can I find IPTV streams?

You can find a list of publicly available IPTV channels here: https://iptvcat.com/ and here https://hlscat.com/, but there are plenty of sites providing links to channels all around the world.

How does an IPTV stream look like?

It can be hard to find a stream that works with the HLS streaming protocol, but more and more are joining. The format that you should be looking for would look something like this: https://dai.google.com/linear/hls/event/rtcMlf4RTvOEkaudeany5w/master.m3u8. Streams should always end with .m3u8 and in some cases, you might have to remove what ever is after .m3u8

Please note that when using a paid IPTV service, we can not guarantee that the stream will work in our plugin. Many paid IPTV subscription services protect their streams with additional authentication or use a different stream protocol.

What kind of stream formats do you support?

We only support HLS streams, if you have RTSP/RTMP stream, then it has to be first converted to HLS stream by an encoding server.
