Mac Setup Tuturial

mac-logoThis tutorial will guide you through the simple setup instruction for Mac OS X computers.

Alternative Setup: Viewing the Live TV Store service on a PC or Mac though VLC Player works really well, but it is slightly limited and the user interface is not very indepth. There is a workaround for computers which involves using an Android emulator as the base OS, which then gives a far greater user experience.

Continue with a VLC Player setup

  1. Download and Install VLC Player from Videolan.org
  2. Run VLC Player and click onto ‘File’ -> ‘Open Network..’.
  3.  Paste your unique ‘network URL’ into the address bar, then click onto ‘Play’
  4.  In order to view the full channel list click onto ‘Preferences’ then uncheck ‘Show video in main window’. This will display the playlist in the main window and the video in a new window.
  5. In order to simplify future viewing, you should also save the playlist URL to a file. To do this, click onto ‘File’ -> ‘Save Playlist’ and save your Live TV Store playlist to a safe location (such as documents) as an Extended M3U file format.

Watching Live TV after initial setup

  1. Run VLC Player -> Click onto ‘File’ -> ‘Open File’ or ‘Open Recent’.
  2. Select your Live TV Store file.
  3. Wait for the playlist to load, this can take a few seconds.
