Why VLC crash while load m3u link ?

It happen while loading very huge playlist (like full package of IPTVandIPTV provider

which are more than 60000 items ) . You need decrease Channels and VOD list .

Its possible to manage and remove unwanted categories via IPTV dashboards

which provided by your provider.

Can I see Channels, and VOD groups ( Bouquets ) in VLC?

It’s not possible via VLC player.
