Author Topic: Creating m3u8 file for audio streaming service  (Read 1099 times)

I am trying to create an m3u or m3u8 file to use with XMPLAY for an audio streaming service.  As is common today, the IP address and stream numbers are hidden.  When I run the stream through URL Snooper 2 I find NO multimedia file formats. When I use the INSPECT function in Chrome with the NETWORK tab, I get a rapid succession of :

which repeats and increments the livestream number by 1 each time.

How can I create the proper M3U playlist file to play this stream? It seems I ultimately need the IP address and Stream number, which my tools are not finding.

That looks like an HLS stream. To play it with XMPlay, you would use the full URL of the livestream.m3u8 file.
