HOW TO UPDATE SMART IPTV APP?
From time to time apps are updated to resolve bugs or have new features added. Smart IPTV App is no different and it is a good idea to keep it updated. For instance, previous versions didnt have buffer size settings but new versions have this feature which will help you set the app to have an auto detect buffer size mode, 5 seconds buffer size which is good for slow connections and 10 seconds buffer size for bit faster connections. Bug fixes and new features are other good things which make updating to new version a good idea.
While it is good to keep your app updated, doing so is a bit tricky but yet an easy procedure. Here is how it`s done:

For those of you who want to install Smart IPTV on a Samsung smart tv but you can not find it on the app market, here is a simple tutorial to do this manually via a USB flash drive. Doing this is very easy but you need to make sure you are using the right widgest file from one of the methods below by being certain of your Samsung TV series.
Samsung TV’s are either running based on Tyzen or non-Tyzen operating system:
-Tyzen TV’s (J K M N Q R Series):
Click here to download the Tyzen Widget zip file directly from Smart IPTV app server. Once downloaded, unzip it. A folder called userwidget should be created which contains SmartIPTV.tmg and widget.license files. Put that folder on a FAT32 formatted USB flash and then connect the flash to the USB port of the TV. Now if you go to My Apps page, Smart IPTV should show up there. You can then remove the USB flash drive from the TV.
Note: If you are using a J Series TV, before removing the USB flash, Menu > Smart HUB > App Auto Update and disable the auto update feature. You will then never lose the app when TV is restarted.
-Non-Tyzen TV’s (E ES F H HU J4 J52 Series):
Click here to download the Orsay Widget zip file directly from Smart IPTV app server. Once downloaded, unzip it.

Put that folder on a FAT32 formatted USB flash and then connect the flash to the USB port of the TV. Now if you go to My Apps page, Smart IPTV should show up there. You can then remove the USB flash drive from the TV.

Disclaimer: IPVANISH App WILL NOT WORK on the FIRST GENERATION FIRE STICK!
NOTE: The First Generation Fire Stick (FCCID: 2ABDU-0509) may allow the IPVanish app to be installed and even launch, but that does not mean you can use it. The older hardware in the First Gen Firestick will not allow the app to work properly and may result in making it an unusable device. If you are using a First Gen Firestick, then do not use our app.
IPVanish requires the Gen2 Fire Stick (or newer).
*** NOTE: Some generation 1 sticks do also now come with an Alexa Voice remote, so please check the FCCID number as mentioned above to see if you have a generation 1 Fire Stick ***
It is the user’s responsibility to make sure their devices will work by researching compatibility FIRST. Again, ONLY use the Gen2 fire stick (or newer) or the Fire TV.
The following is required for IPVanish VPN to work with the Amazon Fire TV or Amazon Fire Stick:
A secure IPVanish VPN connection (Don’t have one? Sign up here!)
An internet connection
Amazon Fire TV or Amazon 2nd Generation or later Fire Stick
