IPTV proxy for Plex Live written in Golang
1) Go to the releases page and download the correct version for your Operating System
2) Have the .m3u file on hand from your IPTV provider of choice
Any command arguments can also be supplied as environment variables, for example -playlist can also be provided as the PLAYLIST environment variable
3) Run telly with the -playlist commandline argument pointing to your .m3u file. (This can be a local file or a URL) For example: ./telly -playlist=/home/github/myiptv.m3u
4) If you would like multiple streams/tuners use the -streams commandline option. Default is 1. When setting or changing this option, plexmediaserver will need to be completely restarted.
5) If you would like telly to attempt to the filter the m3u a bit, add the -filterregex commandline option. If you would like UK only tv, run telly with the -uktv commandline option. If you would like to use your own regex, run telly with -useregex <regex>, for example -useregex .UK.
6) If telly tells you [telly] [info] listening on ... - great! Your .m3u file was successfully parsed and telly is running. Check below for how to add it into Plex.
7) If telly fails to run, check the error. If it's self explanitory, great. If you don't understand, feel free to open an issue and we'll help you out. As of telly v0.4 sed commands are no longer needed. Woop!
8) For your IPTV provider m3u, try using option type=m3u_plus and output=ts.
Adding it into Plex
1) Once telly is running, you can add it to Plex. Plex Live requires Plex Pass at the time of writing
2) Navigate to app.plex.tv and make sure you're logged in. Go to Settings -> Server -> Live TV & DVR
3) Click 'Setup' or 'Add'. Plex won't find your device, so press the text to add it manually - input localhost:6077 (or whatever port you're using - you can change it using the -listen commandline argument, i.e. -listen localhost:12345)
4) Plex will find your device (in some cases it continues to load but the continue button becomes orange, i.e. clickable. Click it) - select the country in the bottom left and ensure Plex has found the channels. Proceed.
5) Once you get to the channel listing, telly currently doesn't have any idea of EPG data so it starts the channel numbers at 10000 to avoid complications with selecting channels at this stage. EPG APIs will come in the future, but for now you'll have to manually match up what telly is telling Plex to the actual channel numbers. For UK folk, Sky HD is the best option I've found.
6) Once you've matched up all the channels, hit next and Plex will start downloading necessary EPG data.
7) You're done! Enjoy using telly
telly is automatically built at the Docker Hub
