    yes, start cheap. You can even just use your PC or Laptop for iptv too.
    Till you get used to it or want to just test it.

    There are many Players that are available to view a iptv66 Playlist in m3u format. Even the popular VLC Media Player will work.

    How to Get a Rocket m3u Playlist
    First thing you have to do is visit iptvrocket.com and log onto your Rocket code using your 16 digit Order number and your 12 digit Rocket Donation.

    Once you are loged on to your Rocket, use the Change MAC function that is found there and delete your MAC address seen there
    Do not enter the zeros, just delete the MAC that is there now.
    It may revert to 00:00:00:00:00:00 on it's own after you have deleted it, and that is okay
    But do not enter the zeros, just delete the excisting MAC, or if no MAC entered yet, then that is one step you do not need to do, the Playlists should be already available in that case.

    Once that is done, you will see a Playlist selection, click on that and a drop down menu will appear.
    There are a few different Playlist types available, depending what Device or Application or Players you wanna use. Some are config lists and some are txt lists.

    As an example for this tutorial we will look for an M3U Playlist.
    Scroll down thru that list shown, and choose Generic M3U
    Now you will see an http address appear there just below where your MAC had once been
    Either click the address or copy that address and paste it into your Browsers address bar OR you can highlight the complete address and left click on it and choose .... Open in New Tab.
    Next you will see a hotlink appear, choose Save.
    That Playlist file will now be saved on your PC somewhere, prolly in your Downloads folder or wherever your downloads end up at

    That's it as far as getting the Playlists.
    You can grab as many as those Playlist versions as you want.

    **Very important ...
    Do not share these Playlists. They are linked to your Rocket and password, with the password even being included in the http address for each and every channel.
    If NFPS sees that your access is being streamed from more the one device and same time, your Rocket will be stopped and you will be banned from the service.

    So play nice with your Playlists

    You can also edit these Playlists on your PC or laptop (arrange channels and delete unwanted channels or VODs).
    Create an exact copy of the original (or just save your work renamed, then the original will still be available) and then open one of the playlists in note-pad or word-pad and delete the channels you do not want or rearrange the channels.
    Save and rename and Ensure it stays as an .m3u file (not a .txt file) and also is kept encoded as UTF-8 (for this Generic M3U file).
    If you are not sure if it saved as an .m3u file, just right click on the file and select Properties and check file type there.
    There are some Playlist Channel editors that make the process faster. The VLC Media Player will even allow you to edit them.
    With the VLC on laptop you can open your playlist and view channels playing... and at same time you can start editing the same list as easy as that.

    **But remember, do not have your playlist playing on your TV and also thru your PC on VLC Player at same time or that will get you in trouble with NFPS

    See the VLC forum section here on site, for more info about VLC Media Player and Playlists

    Kodi addons that work with m3u Playlists
    --- Playlist Loader -Playlist Player
    --- Perfect Player
    --- Simple iptv -Playlist Player
    --- PVR IPTV Simple Client
    --- VLC Media Player (VLC Player also has PC versions which can include Portable versions for all types of devices)
    --- Xtream-codes
    plus many more not mentioned here.

    Xtreams_codes is another Kodi addon that works with these Playlists, but it is a bit different .
    It is however also a good method to use these Playlists, and with different procedures and functionalities. Look for the video tutorial in the Announcment forum area for that.

    This Tutorial was written for Rocket, but iptv66 will be the same and later NFPS as well will be the same ..... except of course for the websites

    How to play Rocket m3u files and edit with VLC Media Player

    first, there is a video tutorial posted here in this same VLC forum. It shows an easier way to get the Playlist while using the VLC
    Reason why I show another way here, is so you have the actual Playlist in hand and needed for the functions explained in this tutorial.

    Lets start by discussing the editing of an m3u file, simply with Notepad or Wordpad.
    This is easy to do.
    Simply open the m3u file with Notepad or WordPad on your PC and start editing.

    Afterwards, when you save the file, ensure that it is saved as UTF-8 encoded and an .m3u file.
    Right click on the file itself, and then click Properties and check in there that the file type is in fact .m3u

    Okay, with the file open, you will then see a bunch of lines of information, hundreds of lines with a very large Playlist.

    *Shown further down below in this tutorial, is an actual working M3U Playlist (not rockets thou)
    These shown here are just some old 1950's movies, but the concept is the same for Live TV m3u Playlists.

    Couple things to take note of here.
    The Playlist always begins it's script with #EXTM3U
    Each seperate channel line (or movie line) begins with #EXTINF:0,

    Shown below is an example of one full channel line ...
    #EXTINF:0,The Admiral Was A Lady 1950
    When it comes to deleteing a channel from your playlist, simply delete the full channel line script.
    Or to arrange channels, you would copy the channel line and then paste it where ever you want in the Playlist order (delete where it was as well, if it is still there after coping).

    Easy peasy right ?
    Problem is that it is not so easy doing all that copy and pasting and if you have a very large Playlist (such as the Rocket full Playlists are), then it becomes difficult picking out the channel name in amoungst all that info. And with Rockets lists , the channel names are short and hard to pin-point with any kind of effeciency and it is lots of work just arranging a few channels (as far as editing is concerned)

    The Playlist shown below is a very tiny list compared to Rocket list, but you may be able to see what I mean when it comes to editing and pin-pointing channels, if you are doing lots of editing.

    #EXTINF:0,The Admiral Was A Lady 1950
    #EXTINF:0,Love Island 1950
    #EXTINF:0,Behave Yourself 1951
    #EXTINF:0,Mr.Imperium 1951
    #EXTINF:0,You Asked For It - Bela Lugosi 1952  
    #EXTINF:0,Kansas Pacific 1953 -in color
    #EXTINF:0,Yongary, Monster From The Deep 1967 
    #EXTINF:0,Love Happens ??
    So, a good way to edit Playlists would be with a Playlist Editor, and the ideal way is an Editor which is also a Player
    There are a few out there.
    Fobar2000, wimamp and a couple more that I do not recall off hand.
    They work... but not what I expected

    Now lets talk about VLC Media Player !

    It is a Media Player for all types of media (almost all).
    It is Open Source and therefore always free.
    It is an Editor.
    It is well supported.

    So with VLC open on your desk top, simple drag and drop the m3u file onto the VLC Player
    then hit the play function found shown at the bottom portion of the ¨Player (ensure you have the Player in maximize window).
    Bang ....your first channel on the Playlist should start playing.

    Okay, that is great.
    Next lets open the Playist in a list type view and while the channel is still playing.

    In the bottom portion on the screen (while in maximize window), you will see the Playlist View function off to the right of that Play button.
    (Hoover the mouse over the icons and the function description willl appear).
    Click the Playlist view function.
    A list of all the channels will be shown and at same time your channel will still be playing in a small window on the Player.
    Double click any channel for channel change, or use arrow functions at bottom portion of the VLC Player

    Okay left or right click a channel. Should now see a pop down window with options to remove ,and other options.
    To move a channel, just drag and drop it.
    This Editor is not a full blown editor where you can high light groups of channels and move them all at same time and other things, but is a pretty good Editor none the less.

    Here is a trick
    If the channel you are viewing is buffering, and maybe so bad that there is a noticabale dead spot, your VLC will automatically change the channel and keep changing till a working channel has been found.
    This only happens when in Playlist View mode. It does not happen in full screen viewing.
    But anyway, no big deal right ?.... but it does play havoc on your on-going editing , because the channel change takes presitance over your editing process and your current spot on the playlist that you happen to be editing, will change to coincide with the channel change.
    The best way to overcome this is to not have the Player playing any channels while editing... or ensure you are on a channel that does not buffer and also save your work often (thru the media tab, found up top left)

    Okay another thing along the same topic... Take a channel that never buffers and is one of your favorite channels and drag and drop it as your first channel on the list , and save as that (save your edited work often, as you go along)
    So next time you open the VLC Player and your Playlist, there will be no lag with start up while the Player is waiting for the channel.
    With a channel that seldom or never buffers and is placed at number one spot, then there is no lag at start up.
