M3U url vs Portal url

Hi, Im just getting familiar with IPTV and wanted to understand what the difference is between M3U file(url sent from supplier) to inputting a portal address(seen on Mag 256). Is one better then the other for quality. I recently used Perfect player (amazon fire stick) and used a m3u link. The actual stream worked fine but i was disappointed with how slow it was to scroll channels and get the epg working. Any advice appreciated

M3u is the file u enter into ur perfect player or other iptv player. Which has ur portal n username n password on it.

Url is the http link from ur provider which is used to enter into ur magbox.
U get m3u subs and u get mac address subs. With mac address subs u take the mac address frm ur magbox n give it to ur seller he then adds ur mac to the iptv servers and gives u the portal url which is the http link. This connects u to the iptv server n cuz ur mac address is already added the server send the iptv channel list to ur box

Ok thanks. So just different ways to get a channel list. No difference in terms of one is better quality for streaming then the other.

I have successfully entered the url address of m3u playlist into simple client of kodi and it updates and I wondered if it is possible to do this in echannelizer for zgemma
