So if you’re an avid lover of IPTV like me and purchased / rented a MAC Address based IPTV provider and primarily watch on a Macbook Like me AND also have a VPS or virtual server OR want to run it locally, the best solution I’ve found so far is self-hosting STB-Proxy by Chris230291. I run this on my Google Cloud based Ubuntu server (also works on Centos7) and is Python3 based. It’s a simple, no-frills way to add your IPTV MAC servers and watch them in your browser or with common media players like VLC. It’s not the fastest. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles. But it WORKS!

Here are the instructions on how to install it on your server.
git clone
apt-install python 3
pip3 install flask requests retrying
apt-install ffmpeg
cd STB-Proxy
sudo python3
Then navigate to if you’re running on the same machine or open port 8001 and navigate to your servers external IP address
