M3U links explained for beginners

If you’ve never heard of IPTV, you will probably start using an M3U account, also known as m3u URL.

Your URL contains the IPTV server, your username and password. This URL is personal, anyone with this URL can get access to your IPTV account. Do not share it on public forums.

How does it look?
Most M3U URL’s look like this - the bold parts will be replaced by your actual details. Most resellers will give your URL in the format below.
http://YOURSERVER.COM:80/get.php?username=USERUSER&password=1234567&type=m3u_plus&output=ts

You can strip this to:
Server: yourserver.com
Port: 80
Username: useruser
Password: 1234567

TIP: You can log in to portals on IPTV receivers with these details!

Port is not necessary to include, only when it’s not 80.
