How to Setup IPTV Server on Ubuntu
IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) has revolutionized the way people watch TV. With an IPTV server, you can easily deliver media content through the internet. In this article, I will explain how you can easily set up an IPTV server on Ubuntu.
Ubuntu is a popular Linux-based operating system that is suitable for hosting servers. It is free, open-source, and offers easy-to-install server management tools. Additionally, Ubuntu is a stable and secure operating system that can run on both old and new hardware.
Install Necessary Packages
Before installing any software, it is important to update Ubuntu. You can do this by running the following commands:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Next, install the necessary packages that are required for running an IPTV server on Ubuntu. The packages include Apache2, PHP7, and MySQL.
sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
sudo apt-get install php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql
After installing these packages, you need to install the PHP extensions to support IPTV:
sudo apt-get install php-curl php-gd php-mbstring php-xml php-xmlrpc
Install Xtream Codes
Xtream Codes is a powerful IPTV panel that allows you to manage IPTV channels, streams, and users. It is a popular choice for setting up an IPTV server on Ubuntu. Xtream Codes provides a web-based interface that makes it easy to manage your IPTV server.
To install Xtream Codes, run the following commands:
sudo apt-get install git
sudo git clone https://github.com/XtreamCode/Xtream-UI.git /root/Xtream-UI
After cloning, navigate to the Xtream-UI directory and run the installation script:
sudo bash ./install.sh
During the installation process, you will be prompted to enter your MySQL root password, Xtream Codes admin password, and FFMPEG installation.
Once the installation is complete, login to your Xtream Codes panel using the admin credentials. You will be able to add channels, streams, and users, and manage your IPTV server.
FFMPEG is a multimedia framework that is required for encoding and decoding video and audio data in IPTV. It is used to convert video and audio files into different formats and to stream multimedia content.
To install FFMPEG, run the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathonf/ffmpeg-4
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg
By default, Ubuntu ships with the UFW (Uncomplicated Firewall) that is enabled. You need to allow incoming and outgoing traffic on specific ports for IPTV traffic.
sudo ufw allow 22/tcp
sudo ufw allow 80/tcp
sudo ufw allow 443/tcp
sudo ufw allow 9000/tcp
sudo ufw allow 8000/tcp
sudo ufw allow 8080/tcp
sudo ufw allow 27017/tcp
sudo ufw allow 3306/tcp
sudo ufw allow 8001/tcp
sudo ufw allow 5432/tcp
sudo ufw allow 1935/tcp
sudo ufw allow 123/udp
sudo ufw allow 53/tcp
sudo ufw allow 53/udp
In this article, we have covered all the necessary steps to set up an IPTV server on Ubuntu. We have installed the necessary packages, configured the firewall, and installed the Xtream Codes panel.
