EPG Multiple countries

Post by rodalopin »

Hi,

I have some problems to understand how the EPG in SS-IPTV works... I understand it takes it from the standarized name. Ok, that's fine. But what when the channel is in many countries and I have in the playlist different countries (organized by categories).

So, let's say I have:
- ES > Fox
- USA > Fox

Right now, all the Fox looks like is bringing the USA EPG (or english site). How can I specify the contry for each channel? Should I add "ES" at the end of all my channels under Spanish (ES)? Would that work?


Thanks!

Hi,

Use ISO 3166 Alpha 2 code as follows:

Code: Select all

#EXTINF:0 tvg-name="OriginalName" tvg-country="ES" , Title
http://path_to_stream/playlist.m3u8
or

Code: Select all

#EXTINF:0 name="OriginalName" country="US" , Title
http://path_to_stream/playlist.m3u8
"tvg" prefix is optional.
Original name is used for recognition, title can be used for displaying.
Best Wishes,

Ahhhh thanks. My IPTV provider doesn't provide by default with that "country/tvg-country" tag so I guess I will have to do some script to fix it... :(

The name has to be "exact" in the sense, it doesn't take "HD" or "FHD/Full HD" or "1080p" or similars in the name, correct? Thanks
