Here is a list of popular IPTV players.
123TV's channels have EIA-608 embedded subtitles. In case if you're not a native speaker and use TV, Cartoons, Movies and Shows to learn English and Spanish languages I would recommend you following free open-source cross-platform IPTV players that can handle EIA-608 subtitles:
This old beast could play any subtitles. Unfortunately it doesn't support TV Guide.
Fast and extensible player. It supports subtitles, but not that good as VLC, sometimes you could encounter troubles playing roll-up subtitles. Unfortunately it doesn't suppport TV Guide.
Comfortable, handy, extensible with smooth UI player. Supports TV Guide, has mpv as a backend.
Supports subtitles, but there is no option to enable them via user interface. If you want to enable IPTV subtitles you have to use following "Mute" hack.
Enable IPTV subtitles
I found a quick hack to force play embedded IPTV subtitles, all you need is to create one file:
~/Library/Application Support/Jellyfin Media Player/scripts/subtitles.lua
And paste following text in there:
-- File: subtitles.lua function on_mute_change(name, value) if value then local subs_id = mp.get_property("sid") if subs_id == "1" then mp.osd_message("Subtitles off") mp.set_property("sid", "0") else mp.osd_message("Subtitles on") mp.set_property("sid", "1") end end end mp.observe_property("mute", "bool", on_mute_change)
After that every time you mute a video (🅼 key pressed), you toggle subtitles on/off as a side effect.
1) Settings -> Dashboard -> Live TV -> Tuner Devices -> Add -> M3U Tuner -> URL -> http://127.0.0.1:6464/123tv.m3u8 2) Settings -> Dashboard -> Live TV -> TV Guide Data Providers -> Add -> XMLTV -> URL -> http://127.0.0.1:6464/tvguide.xml 3) Settings -> Dashboard -> Scheduled Tasks -> Live TV -> Refresh Guide -> Task Triggers -> "Every 30 minutes"
Some versions does not support compressed (*.xml.gz) TV Guides.
Player built with Electron so you can run it even in browser, has light and dark themes.
Support subtitles and TV Guide.
1) Add via URL -> http://127.0.0.1:6464/123tv.m3u8 2) Settings -> EPG Url -> http://127.0.0.1:6464/tvguide.xml.gz
