Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Terms of use m3u8x software


I’m not getting what he is saying, I have offline m3u8 file how can I paste it in this software, there is only link option to paste.

m3u8 are text files, so you can open them in any text editor to see what’s going on. if i remember right (haven’t done this in a long time) if there are URLs inside the file you can use them locally because it will look for the streams or resoruces in the web, but if not you will have to use the m3u8 file directly from the web source (just copy/paste the url). again, im not sure and things could have changed since then.

also i’ve used VLC player to download streams like this in the past, (menu media -> open network stream, paste the m3u9 local address or url) and convert the downloaded stream to mp4 and it worked fine. all within VLC player, nothing else needed.

I needed this. Let me try it
