I am not sure what you are referring to here

Page 9 has no links to ms_meme's nook - page 9 is the article for IPTV: Free Streaming Over The 'Net

ms_meme's nook is on page 2 and page 12

Maybe you can explain to me what problem you are seeing or are experiencing


UPDATE: Sorry I was looking at the HTML and not the PDF. I will get it corrected.  It should be working now....

IPTV: Free Streaming Over The 'Net 
I tried to follow the directions with VLC.  I get a sharp picture, but after a couple of seconds it changes to the next channel.  I can not make it stop on one channel.  Thanks

I had the same experience yesterday on a lot of those streams.
I did find one lot which played very well .....  BT Sports.

I have not tried today ....  I expect the streams will be updated by now.

Try clicking on the "Loop" button in VLC. You may have to do so twice. This is per the instructions on the GratisIPTV site.

Some m3u lists play better than others.

Hope this helps!

Unfortunately not ......  had tried that as per instructions on the site. :(

It seems to be a different problem, as the channel changes much quicker than the ~30 secs mentioned.

Thanks Magazine crew for another great issue! :)

The IPTV article really caught my eye. I purchased a year subscription to ExpressVPN and have been reading and setting it up, so far I really like it.

I've tried some of the IPTV lists from GratisIPTV using VLC and Chromecast. I've found a few stations that I was able to watch. Lots of googling to do ;)
