Now that we’ve entered the new decade, IPTV still continues to grow with escalating popularity. There are so many different IPTV applications that it can start to feel overwhelming. But one of the apps that I am most impressed with to this day is IPTV Smarters.
If you want to learn all there is to know about IPTV Smarters, whether that be what exactly it does or how to install it for yourself, this overview will cover everything you are looking for. Setting up IPTV Smarters is actually quite simple once you know all the steps, and trust me when I say that it is worth the effort.
What is IPTV Smarters?
IPTV Smarters is a video streaming player that was specifically designed for people who want to stream their TV or video-on-demand content on a variety of devices. Like any IPTV app, IPTV Smarters does not supply you with the content. It is a video player that must have a separate IPTV service added onto it.
There are many reasons why I think IPTV Smarters is one of the best IPTV apps out there. It has good support for embedding subtitles and also supports language switching, which makes it a great choice for people who are bilingual. One of its best features is the built-in IPTV player which supports a wide variety of formats.
Do I Need a VPN for IPTV?
Technically, you don’t really need a VPN to use any IPTV services but I would highly recommend that you do invest in one anyway for multiple reasons.
For one thing, VPNs are rather cheap, even the good ones. Many of them will only end up costing you $3 – $5 a month and come with many wonderful features to enhance your online privacy and security.
One of the most important things that everyone planning on using IPTV needs to know is that it can be quite easy to unintentionally access content that is not obeying copyright infringement rules. That means if you accidentally watch an illegal stream, you could be in trouble without even realizing it.
VPNs act as a safety net to protect you in this situation. Because VPNs mask your true IP address you’ll be totally in the clear in case you ever stumble upon any unsafe streams or content.
It’s also important to choose a VPN with strict logging rules. That way, your own personal information or data (such as your full name or real IP address) won’t be saved in their servers in the event of a shutdown.
VPNs are such a great tool that I would recommend them to you even if you don’t use any IPTV services, which means that their benefits only increase when you are streaming IPTV content.
Can You Record Content with IPTV Smarters?
While many IPTV players I’ve used in the past didn’t have support for video recording, IPTV Smarters is, fortunately, an exception.
Yes indeed, IPTV Smarters does come with a built-in video recorder. You can easily use it to record live TV and choose where you want to save this data. Whether you want your content saved on external or internal storage is totally up to you.
The video recorder of IPTV Smarters is very easy to use and works with the push of a button. It can only record whatever stream you are currently watching so keep that in mind.
