I am so sorry if this is the wrong section. I need some help. I have a few questions actually. I recently bought an iptv subscription with a provider. I am only able to play the channels on Android, I want to play it on kodi. However, I found out the method they use to encrypt the channels and what not. There's an encrypted page that is accessed using my login credentials and within that page(I think it's a json file), there's a session id. The session id goes in the m3u8 link as such: http://website.com/index.m3u8?sessionid=

How would I create a script that would load the json file,get the session id and connect it to the URL so that it plays? The session id expires every 15 minutes. I assume I would use php but I have no idea how to code. I am able to understand a tiny bit of code however. Also, the link with a proper session I'd doesn't play in kodi but it does in chrome.on Android. I assume that this is a user-agent issue? I have set the URL as such in kodi(http://website.com/index.m3u8|User-Agent=) with the proper useragebt but it doesn't work. I assume that they blocked the usage of user agent. Thanks a lot, and I am sorry if this is the wrong section.

  • Welcome to Raspberry Pi Stack Exchange community. Those URLs to www DOT website DOT com? Are they supposed to be links to your IPTV provider - because they do not seem to be - more of a website creation company OR are they a "generic" form that uses "website" as a generic name 8-)? – SlySven Feb 3 '16 at 19:56
  • Hello, thank you so muchf or youre reply. haha, those arent links to my iptv provider, I edited them out to not make them public. – Bruhbruh Feb 3 '16 at 23:44
  • I suggest learning to code first before attempting any scripting. – Gene Feb 4 '16 at 15:43
