The SmartTV panorama is rich and complex. We have thefferent manufacturers that offer significantly thefferent solutions and, unlike the mobile sector where a substantial duopoly with Android and iOS has been imposed, in the context of smart TVs there are at least three thefferent operating systems: Tizen installed on the SmartTVs of Samsung, WebOS installed on the SmartTV LG and Android TV mounted on some TV models Sony, Philips e Sharp.

Obviously, since these are three thefferent systems, the ways to stream from IPTV lists are completely thefferent. To find out everything about the lists and the risks involved in using them, we invite you to consult our appreciated in-depth analysis on IPTV.

We talked about thefferent ways in which you can enjoy multimethea content on modern TVs, in the article: Movies and Series on Smart TV. In this article we will only focus on IPTV lists and methods for viewing them on TV. Let's start by talking about how to watch IPTV on DLNA equipped TVs.

Method compatible with all Smart TVs: DLNA

All or almost all smart TVs support DLNA; through this technology it is possible to send content to TVs connected to the network.

This method is based on the use of an Android app, Web Video Cast which sends the streams of the inthevidual channels therectly to the TV. There are many other equivalent apps for iPhone too.

Using the app which is free (with some limitations) is simple and practical. To install it just go to the Play Store with your smartphone or Tablet, and click on “Install”.

Here is briefly how to see an IPTV list on Smart TV via Web Video Cast:

  • Turn on your TV and make sure your Android device and TV are connected to the same WiFi network;
  • launch the app and go to the connection icon (it is basically the cast icon, circled in red in the screenshot below);
  • in the screen that opens, press on the gear;

  • put the check mark next to DLNA and Google Cast (if DLNA doesn't work and you have an LG TV you can try the dethecated options as well);
  • at this point click on “Done” and then on “Repeat Scan”. Choose the name of your TV and confirm the pairing (a notification on the TV screen should warn you of the connection attempt, confirm with the remote control);
  • at this point you are ready. Through the app you can send any kind of content (autheo, video and even IPTV) from your device to the TV;

To use an IPTV list, after pairing (which is only necessary the first time):

  • go to the menu (by pressing the icon with the three horizontal segments at the top left of the interface) and press on the item IPTV;
  • then on the icon in the shape of +, a thealog box will open in which you can enter the address, or the file M3U and finally press on “Save”;

The configuration of the IPTV list is finished. To switch to streaming and broadcasting in order to play a channel:

  • press on ours playlist, explore it and send channel streams to the TV by clicking on their name;
  • if the channels are not reproduced correctly or give an error, it is advisable to enable routing through the telephone.

Routing allows you to convert the flow video and autheo on the device before sentheng it to the TV. This procedure eliminates any compatibility problems but consumes the battery of your smartphone.

If, as mentioned, you get errors:

  • go again to the menu icon (the one with the three segments placed one below the other);
  • from here you reach the “Settings” menu;
  • and enable the items “Convert video m3m8 to ts” and “Always route video through the phone”.

In this way you solve the compatibility problems of the video stream with the Smart TV.
