    Hi, I’ve got smart IPTV on my firestick, and have started having issues playing movies. Message coming up saying “media error, sorry cannot play this video”. My playlist provider says I need to go into the menu and change the player settings. However, I’m not sure how to get onto the settings menu using the firestick remote. Anyone have any advice? Thanks

    Yes he does. I know on a friends smart iptv they were having issues and I changed some settings in the main menu but they were playing it through their smart tv using the full remote. Do you know how to access the main menu through the firestick remote?

    Yes that takes you to the screen where you can see the MAC address and can restart the app. It also shows how to use the buttons but not how to get onto the main settings menu.

    You might be best installing STB-emu app. I think it's far better than smart iptv app on firestick

    STB emulator is far better than iptv app, runs a lot smoother and the whole appearance is far better.

    The smart IPTV app on the Firestick is not the most friendly but, if you wont to select what player software you wont to use all you need to do is, go to the channel that you want to play and press an hold the main select button on the fire stick remote, there will then be a menu that appears, select external player, you will then see a list of players you currently have on you fire stick, select which one you would like to you and it will play. You also that the open to make it the default player at the same time by selecting use always. In regards to Players, i would use VLC on the firestick. Any more advise get incontact

    Smart iptv app has a bug in it, I found that will play tv channels fine but any type of vod it will not play or have sound on certain ones, only thing you can do is put another app in like stb emu,perf player or ask ur provider if they do the iptv smarters app

    I know the app has just been updated last week so that may sort out the issue of no sound on vod, but that issue was more to do with the apps own media play. I would always advise using an external player with this app, Evan apps like Smarters iptv albeit a very good app the media player behind it could be better.

    If there are any Windows 10, Xbox One or Microsoft phone users i am in the middle of creating an app that you can use with the xtream api, your provider will give you more detail on its implementation, more details to follow.
