When addind/importing iptv url channels that contains a "%" in the url the iptv_channel table will stored it correctly but when querying the database from any client the "%" gets escaped to "%25" changing the original url causing the stream to fail. Example:

This is the original stream url http://ip_address/live/test.m3u8?clientid=%2F.ts

After stored in the DB and when trying to be accessed from any of the clients the server will try to escape the original url and will try to access the following url


It will try to escape the "%" to "%25" causing the stream to fail
