The DVBViewer Media Server provides M3U playlists containing video or audio files (not URLs!) via UPnP if they are located in one of the media library directories. They also appear on the media page of the web interface. Here it shows the content of the file playlist.m3u that is located in one of my music directories.

So if you configure Kodi as UPnP client it should be possible to access the playlist content.

Thanks for the quick reply. 

Ok, i think i understand, this will only work with example mp4 file ect. my playlist only contains urls (m3u file vod provided from iptv service). is there away i can host m3u playlist files to clients via LAN, or do i need to manually set up my m3u playlist on each client device?

You can use the DMS API to provide an URL for playlist download if it is located in the DVBViewer/DMS configuration folder:

Zitat

Added: API: Download of files from the configuration folder and its sub-folders by using the following URL scheme: /api/getconfigfile.html?file=[path relative to the configuration folder]. Example: /api/getconfigfile.html?file=config%5Cservice.xml (with %5C as URL encoded backslash). Please note that files containing the sub-string “userdata” in their name are purposely excluded and can not be downloaded.

 

If there is a file myplaylist.m3u in your configuration folder, you can download it from the web server by using

 

http://[Media Server IP]:[Web Server Port]/api/getconfigfile.html?file=myplaylist.m3u

 

Provided your web server port is still the default 8089, you can download the file in your browser on the server PC by using

 

http://127.001:8089/api/getconfigfile.html?file=myplaylist.m3u

Ok, my server port is set as default 8089. Im getting a little confused,   are you a able to provide me with a step by step instructions to set my playlist up to host on my media server?
