  6. The PHP version of the panel requires libcurl3 but this library is automatically removed on recent Ubuntu when installing a package that requires libcurl4. The two versions of libcurl are mutually exclusive. If libcurl3 is missing, the panel PHP binary and php-fpm process manager will not work. To get the panel working again just reinstall libcurl3: apt install libcurl3 -y If you need to use the curl cli tool, you can download a static binary that doesn't need external libraries.
  7. You can manually symlink your streams directory to a directory on disk: ln -s /home/midnightstreamer/iptv_midnight_streamer/streams /disk/streams DON'T symlink the streams directory on the same disk your panel is running on. Stressing the disk where the database resides is BAD practice.
  8. One useful feature that goes hand-in-hand with Direct Streams in on-demand mode is URL Mapping. Creating MAPS allows you to dynamically change the URL or part of a URL when connecting to a remote server. Let's say you want to randomly change the username and password included in a URL of the stream, so that the remote server sees a different user who connects each time one of your users opens a certain stream on your server. Always connecting with the same user to a single stream will definitely end up with a ban. It's easy for the remote server to detect if you are restreaming, even if you've changed the user agent. With URL Mapping you can get around this type of restrictions. This is an example of how you can implement URL Mapping: First you create a stream, setting a placeholder "{my credentials}" anywhere in the URL you find useful: In Redirects & Rewrites -> Maps you can add as many MAPS as you need. In the example below we want to map {my credentials} to some username and password. The maps are chosen randomly every time the stream is started, if the stream is in on-demand mode or according to "Change map every X minutes" if it is not in on-demand mode. You can map any part of the URL including protocol, DNS and port number.
  9. Contrary to what other panels do, MidnightStreamer does not merge multiple VODs into a single immutable mega file when creating custom channels. In MidnightStreamer, Custom Channels are real dynamic live channels based on MPEG-TS feeds that can be changed on the fly without interrupting users' viewing. This method is much more fun and is similar to how professional software for TV stations works. You can combine static and live feeds, much like TV stations do when they schedule movies and live news. When the schedule expires with no new feed provided, the channel loops seamlessly and indefinitely until a new feed is provided, never interrupting users' viewing. ➡️ You can even set your custom EPG title and description for each feed/event.
  10. Proxy means to act on behalf of. I understand it can be confused with HTTP proxy. Passthrough is probably a more descriptive term here. Thank you for your suggestion!
  11. In order to connect Ministra to the panel you need to follow a few simple steps: 1) Create a new Line in the panel and set This line will be used in STALKER Portal to Yes. 2) Create a Channel in Ministra and click on "Add Link": 3) Insert the Channel URL in this format (mind the "ts" suffix): http://panel-ip:8000/live/username/password/1.ts Select "Xtream-Codes" from the dropdown list: 4) Copy your stalker key from the panel (System -> General Settings -> Stalker Key): Open (or create if not present) custom.ini in the /var/www/html/stalker_portal/server directory of your Ministra server and add your stalker key: [xtream_codes_key] xtream_key=2770afbb5aade2092adc02592c35f24a Congratulations ! You have just linked Ministra to MidnightStreamer. When a MAG device will connect to Ministra, it will be logged in the panel under the Client Connection Log. Note: In older Stalker Portals, the "Xtream-Codes" option is not present in the Temporary URL dropdown list. In this case you have to copy 3 files in the Stalker Portal: ⚠️Make a backup of your existing itv.class.php, add_itv.php and custom.ini. Copy itv.class.php to /var/www/html/stalker_portal/server/lib Copy add_itv.php to /var/www/html/stalker_portal/server/administrator Copy custom.ini to /var/www/html/stalker_portal/server itv.class.phpadd_itv.phpcustom.ini Open /var/www/html/stalker_portal/server/custom.ini and set your stalker key: [midnight_streamer_key] midnight_key=your_live_streaming_pass_here Now you can choose the MidnightStreamer IPTV Support option from the Temporary URL dropdown list.
  12. All clients with a pro or starter license have been extended the expiration date of the updates to December 31, 2023. Unfortunately, the release of V5 will shift further as we need to step up efforts on the current branch. The TODO list is still long and maintaining two branches is demanding, so we decided to prioritize important features like dynamic cache, new improved firewall, active codes and standalone installation with local activation. All V4 clients are guaranteed the upgrade to V5.
  13. Yes it can be done. No need for extra payments for suggested features.
  14. No, the Ministra player cannot be used with the MS embedded portal. The stalker option is used to connect the stalker portal with the MS panel streams.
  15. Submit a ticket. We can't find the problem you are referring to on other servers.
