Last month I mentioned we could develop an IPTV player and I received very positive feedback. Many of you showed an interest and curiosity towards it but I also noticed that the concept was often misinterpreted or not fully understood.
It’s still too soon to say whether this will be part of Linux Mint and how much we can focus on its development, but we got enough enthusiasm here to get the project started and build a prototype called Hypnotix.
You can download Hypnotix at:
This is an early ALPHA, with no translations and a very minimal user interface and set of features.
It comes configured with a free content provider (FreeIPTV) which provides streams for a variety of TV stations. This was done so that anyone could use it and see how it works. The scope of the project is however limited to the development of a player application and does not include the maintenance or the provision of streams or multimedia content. This is done by the content provider.
Hypnotix doesn’t have preferences in its user interface, but you can configure it from the command line. If you have an IPTV content provider, you can specify its name and your M3U address this way:
gsettings set org.x.hypnotix providers “[‘Provider_Name:::https://m3u_url.m3u’]”
You can follow Hypnotix’s development on Github at https://github.com/linuxmint/hypnotix.
not available in the aur though
Just a matter of time
Should be easy to convert .deb
Well a 30 gb virtualbox and an install of lmde solves the problem too
Edit: I noticed the initial release is tagged at 1.0.0 in the debian/changelog and the deb file, so I’ll do this too:
I searched in pamac-manager and didn’t see it
Also, the upload date and the first commit message.
My arent you the clever one!!!
I try. I often fail, but I try.
TY! Btw, i had to install mpv player to get it to run. just fyi
Ah, another implied and missing dependency. I’ll add it to the package’s
Also: TY TY TY TY TY TY TY TY TY TY TY TY!
See now i wish i knew how to do things because on this page are a number of iptv stations listed but i dont know enough about anything to be able to configure an iptv provider to select those stations
I predict a future iptv box running Linux (not android) marketed by the creators of hypnotix
That was fun, even if there only was a few Swedish channels. Is there a way to make the stream run full screen?
Not yet. On git its been posted as a feature request
This was implemented recently - it’s in
They just don’t respect boundaries or people there.
