Serviio Online Sources with IPTV Links

Hi everybody. Im using Serviio with the feature of online sources in combination with my IPTV subscription service (using Online Sources feature).

So far its working fine, im able to add the link corresponding to the channel streams and use it from WebPlayer, Android App, etc. without any problem.

With my IPTV service provider i have a restriccion of concurrent conection (5 devices in 3 different locations/ip).

My question is about how Serviio works when using online sources and concurrent connection limit with my iptv server provider when let me open these links and made them accessible?

in other words Serviio opens the link as a one conection with my IPTV service and then broadcast the stream (lets says internally), counting as only one connection with my IPTV service and manage the connections with Online Sources by its own?

What im looking to do is open a link as online source and be able to open at my Home Lan as many devices as i want (sort of bypassing the concurrent connetion limit of my IPTV service, at least on the same network the serviio server is).

As i mentioned, so far the functionality itself its working fine, i just dont want to be banned or blocked by my IPTV service provider (lets say serviio server opens one concurrent conection with my IPTV server for each device using Online Sources feature, meaning there is no advantage at all in terms of concurrent connections with my IPTV server provider in the use of Online Service to open the IPTV links).

Can you explain a litle bit how this Online source works when use with my IPTV service, regarding the concurrent conection limit with them?

Here is an example of the Online Source link (is not an actual one, just an example)

Re: Serviio Online Sources with IPTV Links

The Serviio server is the client (only) of your online sources, and all your customer devices are clients of Serviio. So you should not have a problem with the limits.

Then I think this is a very good combo (Serviio + IPTV service) to broadcast an event at home devices.

Great. Thanks!!
