*For Android devices,

you need an Android TV Box for streaming IPTV. There are plenty of tv boxes available for Android and from them, very few are the best and reliable. TiviMate and Nvidia Shield are the best of them. 


*For Windows,

VLC Media Player is the best media player and quite easy to record any video stream.


*For macOS,

I will prefer VLC Media Player again as Windows and macOS are quite similar.


*For Amazon Firestick,

the process will be the same as Android devices. But the limited 8GB internal storage can become an issue for recording files and storing files respectively.

The main thing is, your device must be capable of storing long video files for working smoothly and well. And if you wish to watch an IPTV channel at the same time while recording, make sure to take IPTV Service with “2 connections” from your IPTV provider. Because one connection will be used for recording and the other one will be used for viewing the channel to you.
