Hi I just bought LG 32LB6500-TH, I found that in LG store there is no many apps compared to Andriod TV. I would like to install live tv apps for chinese channels, but I cannot find in LG store, the TV I bought, there is no location country for China. Please help, thank you.

 

I would also like to find some Chinese stream tv apps. My wife is Chinese but we live in Sweden, and she is having a hard time finding streamed content. ost likely it is blocked by content providers. As a sidenote I really HATE that concept. Everyone talks about how "international" we are nowadays, but if you move to Sweden, you are only supposed to watch Swedish content, no matter if you know the language or not, or if you are a native Swede. Your best bet in this case is to find media on the web, either illegal or from websites that don't use IP blocking. Usually this is of really poor quality also. I mean, who the f-ck cares if the consumer is in Sweden, China, India or whatever. It is a  CONSUMER that is INTERESTED in your content, provide it! Totally narrowminded... If I want to pay for watching CCTV1, 2 and 3, why do I have to physically exist in China? I pay for it, so why does it matter where on the planet I am located?

Steam Game Stream is possible, but just with a Raspberry Pi!

 

I can Play all of my Steam Games remote. With an xBox360 Controller and a Windows Wireless USB Connector, normaly controlling the Games will be possible to. But at this time i have to wait for the delivering of the USB Adapter, then i can test if the controller works with my Raspberry to.

 

When the Streaming App for the Raspberry also will run on webOS, i would be so lucky, but there is no such App at this moment...

 

 

Someone maby know something about this App and the compatibility with WebOS?

The Name of the App is "Limelight"

 

http://www.raspberry...=65878&p=483479

 

It just works with some "big" nVidia GPU's and requires Java running on Raspberry/WebOS

 

Sorry 4 that bad spelling, i am from Germany...

It would really be nice to have HBO Go. 

 

For those asking for Plex there is a PLAYz Media PLEX client in the store.  Don't know how good it is because I'm too cheap at the moment to download, It's all of 5 bucks

A simple file explorer that allows to browse network locations just like \\192.168.1.1\ or \\homenetwork\media\movies etc., would be awesome.

- A Plex client app (running Plex Media Server on a px in the same network as the TV)

- A pictures screensaver (configurable to show pictures of a folder in the network)

- Plex

- A smartphone app that plays the sound of the tv. So I can plug in my earphones in my smartphone and I can listen and watch what I want without disturbing anyone else in the house

- Plex

- The native smartphone lg tv remote app is missing a keyboard function

- Plex

- I want to mirror my smartphone screen on the tv

- Plex

- Shazam app: would be really nice if you could use this on whatever is playing on the tv, since shazam can also recognize tv shows and music

- Plex

- Google calendar app

- Have I mentionned Plex already ?

Plex exists (since July) its called "PlayZ media" and works pretty well (some problems with mks subtitles)ç

The native smartphone lg tv remote app already has a keyboard function.

A smartphone app that plays the sound of the tv? I'm pretty sure that there is a way to do that.

 

 

My props:

GOOGLE APPS, specially Hangouts

Hi pi314,

 

I'm From Belgium. My WebOS version is 4.32.20. Tv is 42LB630V.

PlayZ media is nowhere to be found in the LG store on the tv. Not under 'Premium' and not under 'Apps and games'. Is there something I missed to get the app ?

 

The native lg app does indeed have a keyboard. But if you for example open the netflix app on your tv and want to enter your account information than you have bad luck because the keyboard does not seem to open then.

 

As for the app to play the tv sound: I could not find any.

A Movistar Online TV App would be great for spanish users.

 

This is the app for the TV OTT from Movistar ISP, the bigger at Spain. (I think it could work over HTML5).

 

An app of this kind, will be a great push on the LG-WebOS Tv success!

 

:rolleyes:

After using the system for a couple of weeks, the tv desperately needs a Plex application. Using SmartShare to communicate with the plex server is a bad experience. Everything appears messy and tv series do not appear.

 

hello there .. 

have anyone managed to play with the subtitle

i've tried and used their guide to properly setup the settings for the playing a movie with the subtitle from Plex .. but no use 
can anyone provide a sum-up of all the settings required .. in order to ensure that i am not missing any

Hello Flyke & HanoYs: In LG Store (at least in Spain) there is a Plex Client called PlayZ Media and it works fantastic. It's a creation of an Australian Guy. The first days (July 2014) it was called "Plex" but Plex told the creator not to use their name, so today it's called PlayZ Media... Here's the forum at plex https://forums.plex....smart-tv-webos/ And the Web page http://playz.sithari.com.au/ If the app is not in your country LG Store, I think in the Web there is a way to install it...

Hi, I could not find the app in the LG store on the TV at first. I'm from Belgium. I first had to go to TV settings, set countries to manual, then select UK as country and then restart te tv before the PlayZ Media app appeared in the store. I'm happy that I did, the plex (PlayZ) app is great!

Hi, please add DS Video for Synology NAS on LG Store. There are many LG smart TV users who wants to play the media content from the NAS and the experience without this application it's very unsatisfying.

Plex +1

Plex is still not available, but hey... although there isn't a Plex app released for WebOS on the LG, LG officially uses Plex server to "talk to" the SmartShare app on your TV. When you go to download their "SmartShare" software for your computer, you will notice it is actually Plex Server. They don't even try to hide the Plex name. LOL. Chances are, it is coming! :-)

It is a waste of potential LG does not provide basic apps that would make use of them more than stand watching videos, music and photos.

 

For me, missing programs such as:
 

- simple file manager

- messenger with video call ( skype or lg proprietary app, why not ? )
- email client ( may be, only to read messages )

- one social network app
- rss or news reader ( read through the browser is horrible )

- an blessed ssh server to access the system !!!
