    Just for your amusement this is an example of the level of control I have on ALL LG TVs: the menus you see are custom made.

    SEOUL, June 26, 2019 — LG Electronics (LG) announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with The Qt Company, the Finnish-based software developer behind the Qt Project, to expand its existing collaboration on webOS. The expanded partnership will focus on embedding LG’s open source webOS platform in future automotive, robotics and smart home devices as well as positioning webOS as a reference operation system of Qt. The partnership will guarantee more efficient management of resources required to port Qt and minimize gaps between Qt and webOS, leading to the best user experience for AI and IoT customers. With Q’s expertise in user experience (UX) and LG’s knowledge of products, the collaboration will create a powerful development environment for developers, engineers and designers to create innovative and immersive apps and devices. “Our vision to create highly innovative, AI-powered and content-ready smart embedded devices using the webOS platform is more attainable with Qt as a partner,” said Dr. I.P. Park, president and CTO of LG Electronics. “Designing and developing these extremely complex systems requires more advanced software development capabilities than ever before and close collaboration between hardware and software experts is the foundation of this collaboration with Qt.” Qt is a software tool for developing Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) to deliver intuitive and modern UI/UX design and powerful touch functions in consumer and automotive devices. Since 2014, LG has relied on the application development framework of Qt to provide an intuitive and easy user experience for smart TVs and information displays running webOS. Qt will also play a key role in the development of webOS Auto, planned for deployment in future automotive infotainment systems. “LG has been a consumer electronics leader for generations, which is one of the many reasons they’ve become such a trusted partner of Qt,” said Juha Varelius, CEO of Qt. “With its initiative to expand the reach of webOS into rapidly-growing markets, LG is underscoring the massive potential of Qt-enabled connected experiences. By collaborating with LG on this initiative, we’re able to make it easy as possible for our customers to build devices that bring a new definition to the word ‘smart’.”

    No buddy, I don’t allow this here. You can take this behavior to another forum or Facebook, keep it off this site.

    So Joe, did you join the forum just to be a troll or do you actually have something useful to contribute?

    Currently you cannot install an APK on a webOS device as it is a different operating system to Google's Android.

    Hey Guys, So I noticed the same problem and found an ideal workaround. I used the browser feature built in the webos tv and navigated to espn and logged in. I was then able to watch my espn + content. Yes the website takes some time to load but the video content once your playing it and go to full screen showed 0% lag. Keep in mind I'm using an ethernet connection on the tv and have a 100 mbps connection. The quality was very good as well, 4k. I added a picture.

    @Adit The webos version specified by you is firmware version rather than webos version. According to hotstar, only tvs with webos 3.5 and above will receive the update. The tv model specified by you has webos version 2.0 when checked in specifications. So contact hotstar whether they are making the app compatible with version 3.5 below tvs

    Hi James, Woooooah there fella. Formatting. Shouty. And breathe. But anyhoo, according to the specifications found here: https://www.displayspecifications.com/en/model/58b11668 your set comes with 1.5GB of RAM and 4GB of storage.

    I don’t think LG would be answering that. According to the WebOS version it should have been available by now but I guess its a combination of model nos & WebOS version. A lot of older models inspite of having the required WebOS version haven’t received it. Contact hotstar at [email protected] or [email protected] . You can also tweet @hotsartweets

    To use the Google Play Store and the apps that are on it you will need to by a device that runs Android.

    I think what you need is a router with wifi that connects to your communal WiFi network. This way you can create your own local network that can not be accessed from the outside. I don't know if you can do this with any kind of WiFi router so you have to find the right one for your needs. Good luck, Peter

    Subtitles aren't appearing for certain shows(eg. Big Bang theory).NO option to change audio language,video quality. Certain shows are like watching snapshots at 10s interval(check Homeland). Cricket matches are having slow frames per second although i have good bandwidth and fps on my tv(LG UJ652T). NO VIP option also.

    You need to remove the optical cable and connect an HDMI cable from the tv’s HDMI ( ARC) port to the soundbar’s ARC port. After doing that turn on LG Simplink in the settings. Then you will be able to control the soundbar from the magic remote. You can also add the device using device connector -> add device. Simplink is basically HDMI CEC that allows control of connected HDMI devices. Optical cable is just an audio output cable and cannot be used to control the other device. Get a decent HDMI cable.

    The app should be available for your WebOS version.You should search for the app in the LG Content Store.If you find it click on it and click on install. If you don’t find it, then write to [email protected] and ask them.

    Thanks Geroge. Sorry about the confusion. Let me get in touch with Hotstar as well. Will update back if i hear anything promising.

    That is because LG is webOS not Android.

    Its a shame WebOS doesn't support steam link still. I don't think I can wait any more longer for LG to add it to the store. I've decided to sell my LG TV and get an andriod TV just so i can use the steam link app.

    Yes I am sure that the website does work on your phone and computer (as it does on my own devices), but those are not running webOS. Just because something works on one browser does not mean it will work in another. Did you ask MotoGP if they had tested their browser in webOS or if they just tested it on mobile & desktop platforms? Websites have to be written to be compatible with the browser trying to serve the page, for instance Internet Explorer would need several different pieces of coding to be viewable in all the different releases. As I have written else where in this thread the webOS browser probably does not recognise the JavaScript being uses to display the video, and it should be relatively easy for MotoGP to engineer their site firstly to recognise the webOS browser and secondly to serve it with a version of JavaScript that it can understand and display. http://webostv.developer.lge.com/discover/discover-webos-tv/ It is easier for a website to write a site to serve the correct JavaScript to a web browser than for a browser manufacture to cater for every esoteric piece of coding language out there. It should not be difficult as webOS's browser is based around WebKit as used by Safari, Opera, Chrome and even now Microsoft's upcoming releases of Edge. Most websites are not catering to webOS or even Smart TVs in general as they still make up a very small percentage of devices browsing the web, all sites need to be told to look for specific browser ID strings: https://developers.whatismybrowser.com/useragents/explore/operating_system_name/webos/

    Right, here we go again. First. Nope there are no LG officials on this site, it is a user-to-user forum. Second. Like every other operating system out there the manufacturer of said system does not produce every single app for said platform, see Microsoft Apple etc for examples. So why do all LG TV owners expect LG to produce every single app for the platform?

    You would be better off asking where Steam Link for webOS is on the Steam forum as they are the ones who produce the software. If they can make it for multiple platform including competitors' TVs then they should be capable of porting it to webOS. https://steamcommunity.com/app/353380/discussions/0/1692669912400498996/

    Absolutely agree. The market for people streaming local content at higher bandwidth than 100Mbps is very slim, and if you deducts the pirates I believe it approximates zero. So LG probably decided to skip gigabit in the believing that those watching high bandwidth content would do so using blue ray. But the original question about USB2 Ethernet dongles is interesting. USB2 at 400Mbps would be more than enough, and we have all seen devices with “secret” drivers. Like for instance the Chromecast with USB2ethernet support. I unfortunately only have a 100Mbps usb dongle and a thunderbolt. But if anybody has a gigabit USB dongle please try it out and report back.

    But he is talking abort streaming local content, it is not unlikely to be much higher bandwidth: look at the blue ray standard: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_HD_Blu-ray I LOVE my OLED and WebOS, but I do agree a 100Mbps connection is outdated on a 4K high end TV.

    4K only needs 25mbs. Works fine on my C7.

    I have exactly the same issue with my LG 43UJ630V purchased in August this year. Firstly very disappointed with the WebOS, lack of sufficient internal memory to run the 'apps' properly without constant restarts to 'free up memory' - no excuse for this really given memory is so cheap now. Anyway another major disappointment is the total inability of these sets to use USB Flash drives - LG claim this is due to the read/write limitation of said devices which is quickly exhausted by recording in HD/ 4k. Well all I can say is my six years old Toshibal could manage this faultlessly . The LG however sometimes records OK then other times the recording simply stops after a few seconds. Don't know if this is a 'power' issue or the almost new flash drive is now 'worn out' but whatever LG should either insure their products do what the advertising says or fix the problem. Concerning the 'restarting to free memory error' I did manage to get a call eventually from LG support tech who just stated these TV's are not like computers and cannot be expected to run their Smart TV Apps! Er, excuse me this was promised and is why I purchased the damn thing.

    Lg WebOS hasn't got Flash because i have talked with LG and they say that ADOBE doesn't want to provide them Flash, then i asked why Netcast has flash, they sayed that in that moment ADOBE provided them and as you can see netcast has flash 10 and can't be updated, and the actual version is Flash 15, they sayed that if i talk personaly to adobe, they could help me, so if we all send a mail to adobe, may be they can provide flash on behalf of clients, so friends, one email can change the way of your TV, so please help me and also send emails to adobe. Hope it helped, 1 like also helps me.

    Hi people, Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring? software version: 3:03:04 WebOS TV version: 2.0.2-3928 (behive-badlands) thanks.

    I am surprised that there is a Facebook app for Samsung and other popular TVs, but not for LG. Does anyone see a Facebook app in their location?
