So you must install a physical file on your local drive for Edision to open? I wanted to simply point Edision to the location on the Internet the way a PC works.
That could work also. But IF your address is an https, just use the add-stream plugin for http and backspace and then add the "s" then type in the rest of the address.

I tried with and without the 's'. It didn't work. Also tried with .m3u8 and .m3u ending.

Of course it won't. That's why I just told you to backspace and ADD the "s" to the http. You want it to say https://whatevertheurlis.

Also, do NOT forget that these addresses are CASE sensitive!

For some stupid reason, the Add-Stream plugin doesn't have a preconfigured https choice. But you can manually do it like I've said.

I've also noticed that IF you make a mistake, it doesn't allow you to correct it after you've saved it. You have to delete the bad one that doesn't work, and create a brand new one. I highly suggest you get a remote keyboard. Then, go right up to the screen and make SURE it's all correct before you do the final save. It can be pretty difficult, especially with an address that's real long. Even the tiniest error can be overlooked, as I've found out myself

I guess we're not communicating. I said I tried it with http://XXXX and also with https://XXXX. It doesn't work. I've typed it enough that I almost have it memorized. Yes, case sensitive. I typed it correctly.

I just want to get one link to work, then I will consider whether I want to pursue using this feature with a remote keyboard for example.

I would like to be able to record an IPTV stream.

I can't figure out how to enter an IPTV stream into a bouquet. The media player seems to be cut off from the satellite receiver side of the box. I have Mio+ with TNAP 3.2.
If you have the Dreambox Edit program, see my post #24. Once I learned how to do it, I found that it works very well.

Ok, I just tried it from your link above:
Code:
https://uplynkcontent.sinclairstoryline.com/channel/ddd76fdc1c0a456ba537e4f48e827d3e.m3u8
and it doesn't work for some reason. I definitely typed it all correctly, but the Mio can't resolve this one for some reason. It does play in VLC though.

Try this one, it's a good one (You Too America), but not Nasa YTA TV – Something Different.:
Code:
http://thegateway.app:8081/YouToo/CueTones/playlist.m3u8

Most of these streams don't work very well on my 500 Mb internet service.

You might need to put those in .M3U files. Should also play in the browser. I will probably add more so when I go for the holidays, I can hear this on the train.

I've discovered our STB can parse and play m3u8 files. Normally I either have to cast those feeds to the TV from my phone (which ties it up for other things), connect a PC via HDMI (doable but cumbersome due to having to use a wireless keyboard with mouse) or on Roku (which doesn't play all of these feeds).

There is a list here of free and legal IPTV channels, which are in m3u8 format.

To play these channels on your STB, right click and copy the URL from the link above. Paste the copied URL into a new tab in your browser. A small .m3u8 playlist file should download. Open this file in PotPlayer to make sure it plays.

Once you've tested the m3u8 link, save the file to a USB drive or EHD connected to your STB. I save my files to a folder in the root called IPTV, but you can name the folder whatever you want. Rename the m3u8 file to something other than "Master," as most m3u8 files save as "Master."

Download the Media player plugin from the Plugins menu on your STB.

Open Media player. Navigate to your USB stick or EHD. Open the folder you saved your m3u8 files in. A list of the files should appear.

From here, you can either play the channels directly or add them to a playlist. There is supposed to be a way to add IPTV channels to a channel bouquet so they appear alongside our satellite channels, but I haven't figured out how to do that quite yet.

Live streaming channels can also be paused, rewound, fast-forwarded etc (assuming you have an EHD connected to your STB and time-shifting is enabled).

Enjoy!

Never had a chance to try these out, may get to monkey around over the long weekend. I notice the link for the available services your shared does not work anymore. Where can we find a list of whats available? Thanks
