M8linux IPTV addon requirements – Kodi 19 (Matrix)
Functionality: To stream all mpeg ts/hls/m3u8 format live streams continuously and smoothly To play all on demand video/audio formats
Addon requirements: SETTINGS: 1/ Settings must have a user/pass login dialog, this login is then to be inserted into code to complete the url that will fetch users .m3u file and store in local cache. Example:
Settings: $username/$password output source: [login to view URL]$username&password=$password&type=m3u&output=m3u8
2/ Settings must have toggle to display/hide Adult categories
FRONT END: Must be able to read and handle both M3U and M3U-Plus files, with group, category, and icon support. GUI - basic Default Kodi layout but must still read m3u categories Start with “Select Country” list when 1st entering addon, followed by channel groups, then channels.
On very first run of the addon, if no user/pass exists display welcome dialogue and go directly to settings.
Cache m3u locally, refresh every 6hrs (I think this is ok, change it if you think better.)
Background artwork and addon logos will be provided. Testing links will also be provided
