So this was the easiest step by step tutorial guide to install IPTV on VLC Media Player. While using this method, you may get some issues. Here are some frequently asked questions answered.
Why i got error fail to open a TS file?
Why VLC stopped working while i tried to open an m3u link?
This happened due to there was a BIG list of channels available in m3u playlist and non of them worked (due to stream down/link down or IPS blockage). Try using with any VPN may work.
Why VLC loaded few channels not all, available in m3u?
This happened due to, the list of channels/streams+VOD is more than the limit of VLC playlist. Try editing m3u file and short it (keep only you wanna watch).
How to resolve VLC channels skipping issue?
VLC is skipping streams due to streams are offline or your ISP is blocking it. Use any VPN and retry may work. Sometime channels go offline for few seconds and back again, in this situation VLC loop button(available at footer of VLC) may work.
