Stream for Digital Signage


Stream is LIVE streaming based on the HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) protocol (RTSP on Android).

Most commonly the streaming plugin is used for the following scenarios:

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

Depending on what kind of content you’re looking to display you might want to check out our Website plugin.

  • 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 content is a video that you want to play from the beginning, you can disable this option.
  • Muted – Activate to turn sound off

Where can I find IPTV channels?

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

What does an IPTV URL look like?

It can be hard to find a channel that works with the HLS protocol, but more and more are joining. The format that you should be looking for would look something like this: The URL should always end with .m3u8 and in some cases, you might have to remove whatever is after .m3u8

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

What kind of formats do you support?

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