Not really a webgrab question, but is enough that you have a storage or a common place the accessible internally (99.9% no problem) for example a router with usb, will have a "link" like http://192.168.1.1/usb0/guide.xml
Same if you have a storage...http://mynas(or ip)/public/guide.xml
Then you point your devices to that link and it's done. There are several way to do it but basically the principle is that.

My guide file is epg.xml
With nignx server I see this file in local network.
Problem is that tivimate, iptv player... wont load this epg.
If I open this epg.xml in web browser i see epg.

oh i see to save space and have an easy import of the xml (also on iptv players on cell phone) you can zip it into the format they require. Long time ago (working on satellite decoder stuff) I discovered xz is the best. This kind of compression has been introduced everywhere now. You said you use ngix so i guess you have a linux based device, all you need is after the webgrab run compress the guide xml, in a script i have two commands
cp guideIT.xml Italy
xz -z Italy
with this 2 commands my italian guide xml is copied into "Italy" and then compressed with an output of "Italy.xz", then i import locally into my devices.
Hope this helps.

Did you set the file output name to "guide.html" or is that a typo? if you did, that should be "guide.xml"

Quick setup "file browser" mode on freshly installed nginx server:

Edit default config for nginx:

sudo vim /etc/nginx/sites-available/default

Add following to config section:

location /myfolder { # new url path
alias /home/username/myfolder/; # directory to list
autoindex on;
}

Create folder and sample file there:

mkdir -p /home/username/myfolder/
ls -la >/home/username/myfolder/mytestfile.txt

Restart nginx

sudo systemctl restart nginx

Check result: http:///myfolder for example http://192.168.0.10/myfolder/

---------------------------

then go into tivimate. ( the purchased version!!!, no cracked version works proper with epg )
go to epg and write: http://IP/Folder/guide.xml

works perfectly on my raspberry 4 and tivimate.

Now I have new problem.
I have new webgrab now in docker container and I cannot setup to use epg.xml in local network.
Abowe example wont work for me now.

EDIT:
I will try to install nginx in docker container and connect it with webgrab container to see if I can do it that way.
