Could anyone please confirm if you are able to stream LiveTV from an IPTV stream on multimedia/tvheadend?

Ways to repeat this issue:
- Setup a network and Mux, and notice that you can't play IPTV stream
=======
Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Networks -> Add
network name: ABCdirect

Configuration -> DVB Inputs -> Mux -> Add
url: http://abclive.abcnews.com/i/abc_live4@136330/index_1200_av-b.m3u8?sd=10&b=1200&rebase=on
mux name: abc-news
service name: abc-news

press the little Play logo
error: VLC or html5 browser unable to play
=======

The same setup works fine on ubuntu

I had it working last year but don't remember much about it. IPTV streams on the Internet would go to TVHeadend, and then VLC would play those streams. I gave up on it because the only streams I could find were ones that only played for 15 seconds.

I've never used IPTV streams, but tried to follow your instructions, although I may have got something wrong....

When the mouse cursor is above the Play logo, the url shown is
Code:
192.168.1.2:9981/play/stream/service/74e466ca6f18ac1506afcf3e8f63ec85?title=abc-news
when I click on a file is downloaded with the long filename above with an m3u extension.
When I try to launch vlc with this file an error msg pops up saying your input can't be opened
Code:
VLC is unable to open the MRL
'http://192.168.1.2:9981/play/stream/service/74e466ca6f18ac1506afcf3e8f63ec85?ticket=99D1c1..........'.Check the log for details.
This is on Windows 10.

I'd love to see this working so that I can access IPTV stream via TVheadend.
