I tried the .9.7.2 nightly and it now works with Lazy IPTV channel switcher.
Thank you for the update.
By the way, I seem to be having trouble with RTSP and MMS streams. XMTV Player can play them but, most of the time it seems like it has difficulty connecting to these streams. Sometimes it gets stuck for a while on connecting/buffering, and then suddenly exits back to the file browser. And MMS streams at times have very noisy audio.
I know the links are working because OL Player (rtmp m3u8 player) plays them RTSP without the same connecting difficulty as XMTV Player.
This was my experience even before trying the nightly.
Thanks again. Looking forward to more improvements.
