Streaming refers to watching audio or video in real time rather than having to download the entire media file. You will typically need to have appropriate bandwidth, which will significantly impact the quality of the stream that you will get.
Difference between Downloading and Streaming
If you need to understand streaming and loading you have to learn how data in the form of emails, web pages, movies, and the music gets to your PC. Data will typically get to your computer either through:
2. Progressive downloads
Internet-based content is best accessed through streaming though you can also use the progressive download method, which has lately become less popular with increasing bandwidth.
The biggest differences between the two methods are with what happens to the internet content once you are done with it and when you can start using the data.
refer to the conventional downloads that we are all used to. When you download music from iTunes or download a game or an app, you have to wait until it is fully downloaded onto your device before you can use it.
makes it possible to start using the music, or content before the entire file is downloaded onto your device. For instance, if you are streaming from Spotify or Apple Music or from the IPTV server, you can listen to your song by clicking play almost instantly.
You do not have to wait for the entire song to download onto your device before clicking play. This is one of the biggest pros of streaming as it provides access as you need it.
Streaming is also different from downloads in terms of how your data is stored. If you use streaming, the data is automatically deleted from your device once you are done with it. With downloads, the data remains on your computer hard drive until you manually delete it. For instance, UPMaker IPTV will not save that Game of Thrones episode on your PC when you stream it unless you decide to save it for offline listening.
Streaming and Bandwidth
The quality of bandwidth needed will typically depend on the quality of content being streamed. For instance, a low-level quality video will require less bandwidth than a high-quality one. A good example is when you are watching a 400 by 226-pixel low-quality YouTube video versus a 320 by 240-pixel high- quality video. Streaming on PC will require more Internet bandwidth as compared to what you were using the smartphone.
Specifications for Streaming Content(VOD)
Streaming video on demand (VOD) will typically require higher internet bandwidths though this will also depend on the type of media you are streaming. You will usually need about 20 megabits per second or more for streaming standard definition video without any decrease in quality or buffering. 4K and HD media will usually require higher speeds to get high-quality video and audio.
(IPTV) Live Streaming
The technology that IPTV uses is identical to those used in live streaming. However, it is designed for real- time content delivery over the internet. Live streaming is popular with one-time events, sports or live television programming from your premium IPTV subscription.

While buffering may mean a lot of different things depending on the technology you are referring to. Here at UPMaker IPTV, when we talk about buffering, it is only about buffering in IPTV streaming.
Buffering typically means that the picture stops and resumes periodically while you are watching a live stream. The start-stop sequence is what is referred to as buffering. Buffering means that different tasks on your computer are sped up while your stream buffers.
You can prevent intermission or sluggish performance when you are playing a video game that is full of intensive graphics on a desktop PC or while streaming video through the use of buffering.
Buffering usually has to do with preloading data into a buffer. The buffer is a certain area of memory where it can be easily retrieved on CPU or GPU.
While it can be quite a complicated affair to detect the reason you are experiencing some buffering, there are several factors which could explain it. We explain these factors in this article.
Factors that May Cause Buffering
1. Internet Speed
Depending on the quality of the content being streamed, you will need to have a minimum internet speed connection. If you are below the minimum connection speed you are likely to experience frequent interruptions and poor quality.
2. Home Network
It is often very easy to overload your wireless router and have your videos buffer even when you are on a premium IPTV subscription. This is especially when you connect too many devices onto it at the same time. With too many devices connected, the bandwidth reserved for streaming will drop and you will experience interruption and buffering. If you believe that this is the cause of buffering, you can get another router that will handler the relatively heavier traffic load.
3. CPU Usage
One aspect that many people overlook is the level of the activity on any of your internet connected devices. Watching videos requires a lot of computing resources, and hence if your system has a lot of programs running in the background you are likely to get some buffering. One of the best ways that has worked for a lot of people when they have issues with frequently interrupted video is to close out programs and web pages that are not being actively used.
4. Overloading of the Stream Provider
If the IPTV server is getting too many requests, they may get overloaded. This may cause a slower transfer of the content from the server to your device resulting in buffering or an interruption. In such an instance, there is very little you can do except wait until the number of requests to the server slows down.
How to Prevent Buffering
The main reasons for buffering can result from either of these three things: the server from where you are getting the IPTV stream, the hardware processor, and the internet speed. If your internet download speed is fluctuating, you may also experience some buffering.
You will also have interruptions if your media or TV box does not have sufficient capacity to handle high-quality streams. HD channels will in many instances cause low-level boxes and TV to buffer.
Lastly, you will experience buffering if the IPTV providers server is being overloaded due to many users streaming a lot of content. Furthermore, if you use a Smart TV app, KODI or VLC media players, you could try to tweak your connections to reduce the buffering.
If you still cannot watch videos, there are a few solutions to reduce the stuttering effect.
Some video providers make it possible to start the stream, pause and then wait before playing.
This action will give the video time to download more of the data so that it is a little ahead of time. You can then watch without interruption for a while until it catches up to what has been downloaded. You can also disable IGMP Snooping, which has also been shown to be effective at reducing the buffering.
Take note that up to 99% of all issues to do with buffering are as a result of data packet loss and poor internet speed. The only solution to such issues is to change your ISP.
Another way of reducing buffering is to reduce the quality of the video. This will mean that you will be needing less bandwidth, which will result in less stuttering during playback.
You could also download the whole video before playing it. This could take quite some time, but you will be certain that you will watch the entire video with no interruption whatsoever.

The M3U format is the most popular format used in all premium IPTV devices. It is a text file format that has important information about the playlists which includes: the URL of the channel source, the name of the channel and the channel reference number. The reference numbers usually categorize channels according to country for easier access.
Using the M3U File
If you need to stream IPTV channels, the best way to do it is by using a VLC media player. It is a cross- platform media player that is compatible with tons of video and audio content. Moreover, it supports even rare formats such as CON, XSPF, PLS, and M3U8 among many others. The vast majority of IPTV subscription use M3U as their IPTV script of choice. Its popularity comes from its compatibility with many platforms as it can be used on Roku, Smart TV, STB emulators, Smartphones, and Android setup boxes.
Why Your M3U Link is not Working?
If by any chance you find that the M3U link will not work as expected, use the VLC media player to check the link on a PC. If the link is working on the computer, it may indicate that the problem is on your end rather than on the IPTV server. Type in your M3U link and ensure that there are no spaces and that you have not pasted the M3U link on other devices. Using the link on other devices simultaneously will result in your account being blocked. If you still cannot get the link to work on a computer, then it would be best to contact UPMaker IPTV for assistance.
Editing an M3U File and Creating a Favorites List
It is very easy to edit the M3U file as practically any text editor you have on your computer could be used for editing. If you are on PC you can use the notepad to edit the file. What you do is open the downloaded file with notepad and then edit out the channels you do not like from the list. You can then save the newly edited file on your PC that you can then use as the new list for all your future IPTV use.
Why the Channels are not Categorized
If you are using a simple M3U file or URL, your channels will not be categorized. You can have categorization and grouping of your channels by using M3U with options as your IPTV script. Check out an explanation of video formats and IPTV scripts here.

There are several ways to set up or modify your VLC media player so that you can enjoy your IPTV subscription. By modifying your settings and increasing the cache size, you can watch your premium IPTV content without too much buffering.
To optimize your VLC player UPMaker IPTV recommends that you follow the following tips.
Step by Step Guide to Optimize Your VLC Media Player
Step 1: Open the VLC media player and click on the “Tools” tab. Now click on “Preference”.
Step 2: Now click on “All” which is a tab you can find on the “Show Settings” option (Scroll down to the bottom of the window to find the Show settings option). Now navigate to the left sidebar and click on the “Input/Codecs” tab.
Step 3: If you open the file from a local hard drive and find it buffering, scroll to the right side and find the “Advanced tab. Look for “File caching (ms)”. VLC media player estimates the caching value in milliseconds and hence a 1000 value will buffer the player for 1 second. However, if you decide to set this number too high, you will experience huge lags when you need to manually skip the file as you will have to wait for the content to be buffered.
Note that If your file in on a network share, you need to change its caching value from the “Network Caching (ms)” tab.
Cache size in VLC
You could also try to find a temporary solution especially when you are streaming M3U and TS formats or running network URL formats. Check out the explanation of the different file formats below.
How to Change the Cache Size
1. Open the VLC media player application and then navigate to the tab “Media”. Now click on “Open Network Stream”.
2. Carefully type in the URL that you intend to play from the IPTV Server. Navigate to the checkbox and select “Show More Options”.
3. Depending on the speed of your internet connection, you can increase the size of the cache.

What are the softwares you need for watching IPTV?
Strictly speaking, the necessary software will depend on your device’s Operating System. Here’s a breakdown of what you’ll need per OS:
VLC Media Player works with Android, Mac, Linux and Microsoft Windows.
SIPTV and Kodi should work for Smart TVs, while Android users may install Perfect Player.
Enigma2 is good for MAG boxes, smartphones in general and game consoles such as the Xbox One and Playstation 4.
Kodi and Perfect Player are both needed for Android phones, tablets and laptops, while IP Television and GSE should make UPMaker IPTV work flawlessly for the iOS platform.
We break each software further per OS and how you can have it set up for your device.
Computers (Linux, Mac and Windows)
According to most of our IPTV users, VLC functions well in streaming IPTV channels straight to your computer. For those who are averse to VLC and would like other software considerations, we’ll list a few more for you.
Computers are versatile media machines because you can easily play back and watch Blu-ray and DVD content with little to no trouble as long as the hardware meets the requirements. Moreover, they can be used as digital hubs for almost any video content, from live streaming to sports games and many others. All you’ll need is a stable internet connection to start enjoying IPTV content.
VLC media player (Windows, Mac OS, Linux)
VLC can be used for the Mac OS, Linux and Windows. The good thing about VLC is that it’s free, easy to set up and compatible with most computer configuration and hardware (even the low-end ones). You can begin watching your favorite TV shows and movies in as little as a few minutes.
Perfect Player (Windows, Mac OS)
A close runner-up to VLC, Perfect Player can be installed on computers running Linux, Microsoft Windows, iOS and Android.
At its core, the Android app creates a set-top box environment where you can stream IPTV content straight to your Smart TV, mobile phone or tablet. You’ll need an IPTV subscription to watch them, though. Adding the channels is just a matter of importing m3u playlists in the Settings option.
Kodi (Windows, Mac OS, Linux)
Kodi is a popular software that runs on Mac, Linux and Windows.
It’s open source, which means it’s free to download and use by anyone who wants it. The robust media center has a neat feature that allows users to play media and stream it to your preferred destination, i.e., a computer, a smart TV or a mobile phone.
Kodi is widely available on most operating systems, including Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, Apple TV, Xbox One, Amazon FireTV and smartphones.
A straightforward yet powerful software you can install in your Windows 10, Windows phone or Xbox One device. Like Perfect Player, you can run IPTV channels by importing m3u playlists from an external drive or network, then clicking on “play” to start viewing. With IPTV in the name you can be sure that the software has a streamlined process for watching your favorite shows on UPMaker IPTV.
Which One Is The Best?
VLC player, Kodi and Perfect Player are our recommendations when you need a reliable IPTV software for your laptop, desktop or 2-in-1 computer. While it’s true that there are other apps out there that can display IPTV content, these three are the best softwares around for the best IPTV experience.
For Smart TVs
For branded smart TVs such as Sony, LG and Samsung, SIPTV takes the cake as the go-to software. It’s arguably the most-used app for Smart TV IPTV streaming because the interface works very well with any remote. Moreover, developers continually work on the platform and release updates time and again.
Other options include Kodi, which work well as an entertainment hub. To start watching IPTV, you’ll need your TV connected to the web and a compatible player. In addition, some platforms may have support for Grouping, Picons and EPG, to which you’ll need a URL or an m3u file to get things going.
Smart IPTV App (SIPTV)
Smart IPTV app, or SIPTV for short is kind of like the universal software for watching IPTV content on your smart TV.
The app requires little know-how and can be installed on most major TV brands, including Sony, Samsung and LG. Once there, SIPTV shows IPTV and OTT streams for your viewing pleasure. Open your TV’s app store, search for SIPTV and download it. Then, upload the m3u playlist on the SIPTV website.
Once the IPTV service is detected, it’s just a matter of browsing the available channels and sitting back and enjoying premium channels via UPMaker IPTV.
Smart STB app on Smart TV
Got an LG or Samsung smart TV and want to watch IPTV channels on it? No problem. The Smart STB is an Android-based app that channels IPTV service to a display, much like a MAG set top box does and with features you’ve come to know and love.
Kodi on Smart TV
Kodi is the easy answer if you need a software that can run IPTV content, but keep in mind that Smart TVs
have different operating systems, hardware specifications and compatibility. If your TV does support Android, then that’s good; but if not, then you’ll need to consider other software options.
Kodi does offer quite a few nifty features to enhance your IPTV experience, such as the ability to install add- ons and whatnot. The open-source aspect means any third party can access the code and introduce various add-ons for newer app functionalities.
Due to IPTV streaming and Kodi restrictions though, installing add-ons may require third-party platforms and a bit of know-how. If you can live without the enhancements, then Kodi will prove to be a solid choice.
SS IPTV is a multipurpose software for streaming videos through a local network or on the web. The app gets the seal of approval as it’s the recommended Smart TV IPTV software by most IPTV providers. Moreover, importing of playlists are natively supported, eliminating several steps in the IPTV setup process.
When installing IPTV-compatible software on a Smart TV, the rule “Simpler is Better” works.
The options above are the recommended ones because they require the least number of steps. There are other software but they aren’t as popular or as intuitive as Kodi, SS IPTV and Smart TV apps. If you have an Android-enabled TV, then you get access to more offerings, including the GSE, Perfect Player, VLC and more.
Smartphones, Tablets and Setup boxes (Android, iOS, Windows Phone)
Set top boxes, mobile phones and tablets vary from one operating system to the other. When it comes to particulars, IPTV for the iOS usually means GSE, while Kodi usually stands as the clear winner in the Android environment.
In this section we discuss the best IPTV apps you can get for your smart phone, set-top boxes and tablet according to OS.
Kodi (Smartphones, Tablets, and Setup boxes)
Kodi is a multi-platform software that shines as an IPTV app for set tops, tablets and smart phones. It’s available to download for Xbox One, Raspberry Pi, Amazon Fire TV, Nvidia Shield, Smart TVs and any device that can access Apple Store or Google Play.
By nature, Android is non-restrictive when compared to iOS and Mac environments and as such, you’ll be able to install IPTV software with relative ease. The only downside is that you’ll have to sift through dozens of IPTV apps to find the one that works for you. Moreover, you will need an app that shows the content correctly on your phone or tablet’s screen.
IPTV Extreme Pro
A definitive IPTV app you can get for the Android platform. The fine-tuning options make it versatile for all kinds of playback devices both big and small. IPTV Extreme Pro reads IPTV channels when you import an m3u link as a playlist on saved files and storage disks. Furthermore, the app has been downloaded thousands
of times and the reviews on Google Play show satisfied IPTV subscribers.

The Android-native app can be installed in a Windows, iOS and Linux platform.

Prog TV, formerly HyppTV has a small download footprint but is particularly useful for listening to radio channels and streaming your favorite IPTV shows and movies over local network or on the internet.
A free, multi-function IPTV player that’s fully compatible with hundreds of IPTV services on the web. You can easily import your IPTV channels and start watching in just a few minutes.

Discussed below are some of the guidelines that will help you to record programs and air them out on VLC.
How To Record

Other VLC Menus indicate it as Capture button instead of Save button bit all work the same. The best thing is that you can capture and record the video at the same time.
Secondly, after the video has been saved to your preferred file name, click the Capture icon and navigate to where the desktop content is visible specifically at the capture mode box. Occasionally, the default rate of the frame is usually one frame for every second and as a result, the saved video may not be clear. Hence try to adjust the frame rate to a point where it appears smooth enough then proceed to save or convert button.
Thirdly, decide and choose the file destination, a specific section where the file content will be saved. Apparently, depending on your preference, you can make your content visible while still on the process by enabling it on the output checkbox so that you can be sure with what you have saved.
