But there is a different way to watch IPTV – using MultiViwer software. With that program - instead of choosing one by one channel from the playlist - you can load up to 30 Channels at once, it’s all depends on your System performance and Internet connection speed.
Once it’s running, you can double click on any channel to enter full screen mode and double click again to go back to multi-view mode. With a mouse wheel you can increase the volume on selected Channel - very usefull in full screen mode.
You may create your own playlist or download playlist from the Internet and load it to the Multiviewer, which supports M3U playlist structure. It has backup and restore options to save current configuration, so you may try new playlists without loosing your original settings.
