F4M or Flash Media Manifest files are a little different than your regular stream files. Most of Kodi stream sources use f4m file format for a high-quality stream.

In F4M files, you may find:

  1. Configuration of multiple bitrates so that different file streams can be generated depending on your internet speed and device specification.
  2. Different quality of audio and video stored at different locations referenced by F4M file to gather on the go.
  3. Additional metadata and description of the stream file.
  4. Built in DRM Security for sensitive content files.

FYI: DRM security means you can’t access the file without proper credentials. (username and password).
