Its reasonably straight forward, you add the path of your xmltv url within the settings area of IPTV, then more importantly you ensure that the name of each channel in your m3u file correspond with the xml file. (note: addon supports local xmltv files as well as web urls)

Then if epg is up to date with one or more of the channels in your m3u everything should just work.
(Also dont forget to update EPG in live TV settings option after setting up and/or making changes under IPTV settings)

Carefully re-read this post in this thread from developer of IPTV (afedchin), its very clear about what to do with exception of icon naming in m3u which now must include extension (i.e. BBC World.png BBC1 World.jpg)

I personally only use tvg-name tag which I then believe is only item within #EXTINF:-1 string which must align with channel name in xmltv file

Here is a simple example of what information I use in my m3u, entering a valid channel stream url below each channel #EXTINF:-1 entry.

#EXTM3U tvg-shift=0

#EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="BBC World" tvg-logo="BBC World.png" group-title="Working Channels",[COLOR blue]BBC World[/COLOR]
http://.....................
#EXTINF:-1 tvg-name="BBC News" tvg-logo="BBC News.png" group-title="Working Channels",[COLOR red]BBC News[/COLOR]
http://.....................

Just to be clear, I am using a personal stations.m3u and epg.xml stored locally on my network. (Internet URL's provided by other users, as in your example youtube video typically have a short shelf life of working availability)
