Plex plug-in that plays live streams (like IPTV) from a M3U playlist
Plex has retired plug-ins functionality! This plug-in still works, however most Plex clients and apps do not show any plug-ins at all, including this one. So this is the end. It was a fun project despite a bit deserted by me for last year, because some time ago I switched to Kodi as a frontend and Emby as a backend for my multimedia needs, including IPTV. You can read my blog post for more IPTV alternatives if you want. Good luck and take care.
In short, as title states, it lets You watch IPTV in Plex.
It also has a basic program guide, categories, custom logos and other goodies, please read the wiki for information on how to set all up.
Important note: Playback is handled by Plex itself, not the plug-in, and many streams are not playable by many Plex players, please read the wiki for more information and possible solutions if Your desired stream does not work.

If You have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me via GitHub or Plex forum, or visit my personal blog at valdasv.blogspot.lt, but please keep in mind that I did this plug-in voluntary in my spare time and I have other priorities to do so do not expect a quick response. However if You find my work useful, please consider making a small donation as a sign of gratitude and support. Also accepting bitcoins.
