Request to support standard User-agent and Referer like in Kodi

See original GitHub issue

Hi, could you add url support with “User-Agent” and “Referer”, as in Kodi ? 🤔

Most modern IPTV players support the M3U8 Kodi syntax for UA and Referer:

Here’s an example:


It would be really useful since in many list for different channels we need différents “Referer” and the option allow to specify only one different referer by playlist.

Regards ! :octocat:

@4gray I’ve seen that you have integrated the feature so I’d like to know when you intend to publish the next release with this feature integrated ?

Thanks a lot @4gray , 👍

It will be really useful to play legal links from various sites that are expecting a specific user agent. :octocat:
