Is this tutorial ever going to happen?! (Creating own Site Ini)

Title.

I would really like to learn how to make own Site Ini (my own EPG).

Would like to learn and practice on these as well as use them for my IPTV channels:
https://www.tvarenasport.com/tv-program
https://www.tvarenasport.hr/tv-program
https://epg.sbb.rs/
https://mts.rs/oec/epg
https://tvprofil.com/

I hope such tutorial will be made soon, this is something I never found explanation for. Wherever you ask such question you either get joked by people or you get recommended to use that nonsense m3u4u....

But no one knows how to actually open website such https://epg.sbb.rs/ and grab EPG the hell out of it.

I understand it might take some programming knowledge but still, that's what's tutorial for.

It's seems like it's easier to get familiar with some illegal stuff on internet that shouldn't be spoken about at any cost than learning such interesting thing as grabbing EPG is. (just an example)

So much IPTV enthusiasts on the globe, more then ever before and there is no a person, a single person, to explain how to manually create own EPG. Strange, in my opinion. Idk.

Thanks in advance dear people. There are links I put above, all are official websites of IPTV providers and channels except last one that's meant to be an website to track EPG of worldwide channels and it contains all channels from other links in one place. It's something like universal EPG service with cool website and Android app, best place to grab EPG from, but how?

a turorial is almost impossible todo for the simple fact that what i say about how site a operates will most likely be completely different for site b,site c,ect,ect.

the best you can do is try to get the basic concept of how ini work and start asking questions.
that info has been available for years from the dowmloads page.

Is either you start studing or grab thru wg++ . It's like self-learning , there is no school if you want to do it yourself. Follow the link BlackBear indicated, is the documentation of the funcions for this software. Anyway most of the site you mentioned are available with wg++ so you can get epg thru this software (you need to be a donator to run them).

But I guess you know how to grab manually? Let's say from the simple https://www.tvarenasport.com/tv-program which has only 5 channels.

I would just like to learn how to manually grab EPG, am not thinking anything bad about WebGrab, without WebGrab how we would even have any EPG?! Is it really so different on every website? If I learn to grab EPG from https://www.tvarenasport.com/tv-program there is no way I can grab from any other website I mentioned above?

I mean, I don't really think there are 100+ steps to grab EPG for only 5 channels, I guess 10-20 minutes tutorial or 15 minutes reading article tutorial would be enough to explain EPG grabbing. Unless it's forbidden to publish EPG grabbing tutorial here.

In my opinion it's not a crime to ask something in order to learn something instead to just pay. Like in Two and a Half Men TV Show, they had problem with Satellite antenna, "Call the guy to check it" they say, well heck, we shouldn't "Call the guy" for everything in our life, it's not a sin to do something by ourselves or ask to learn, then do.

there is no such option with webgrab.
creating a ini for a site with a single channel is the same process as doing a site with 1000 channels.

help is free,its if you have the desire to learn.
i for one wont impeed you or steer you wrong,what i wont do is simply give you the solution.

i learnt from knowing nothing and using the manual in the link posted above.

if you truely want to learn everything is available free.

for the people that think its too much or those that cant be bothered they are donators.

btw the manual is a tutorial,it explains the steps required to create a ini.

Like bb199 said every site is different, there is no "one format" that can be used. My suggestion is read manual, start with one channel site and see if you can get a full week schedule. There is no video tutorial or one base point to start....but in the manual is explained all the steps and different case you may need to use. Think about i still read the manual after 4 years!!
Anyway tv arena sport is pretty simple, (you need experience to make multi country) so start with one country only.
