One of the main things an IPTV user is looking for is an player application with recording function. It's a feature which most well-know IPTV apps offer these days. If you are looking to record IPTV streams, it is best to have an android or a Firestick device as this function works best on those platforms. IPTV Smarters Pro is an android IPTV application with recording capabilities, allowing you to record your favorite content and store the recordings in your desired folder. Without further due, let's see How to record Live TV content on IPTV Smarters Pro.
Two things to clarify first:
Does IPTV Smarters Pro offer scheduled recording?
At the moment (February 2023) this feature is not available on the app and you can only benefit from manual recording function.
Is a normal IPTV account enough for recording IPTV streams?
No, your IPTV account must have at least 2 concurrent connections allowed even if you want to record the same channel that you are watching. The recording process will need a separate free concurrent connection slot for itself to operate properly. Hence, a normal IPTV account which is usually provided with 1 concurrent connection is not enough.
For your reference, if you want to know how you can install this app on your device, here is the ultimate guide on installing IPTV Smarters Pro on Android or Firestick .

2-In the Recording settings page:
The first field is the name of the recording file. by default, it is named after the stream you are going to record but you can change the name as you wish. Remember to leave the .ts as the file format at the end.
