    Model: 2016 55-Inch OLED55B6P Smart OLED TV. Current Software Version: 05.30.60 Just wanted to share my experience relating to what started as a YouTube message that read “We’ll stop supporting this browser soon. For best experience please update your browser”. I don’t consider myself an LG TV expert, so my only motivation is that this might help someone. The bottom line is there is more than one way to access YouTube on your TV. First of all, let me be clear that I am referring to the basic YouTube platform, the one that features ads, which is what I use and care for. You also have YouTube Premium (previously YouTube Red), a paid service that offers an ad-free YouTube experience, and thirdly, YouTube TV, which is another paid service that offers live streaming television to compete with the likes of Sling TV and Hulu with Live TV. For the longest time I watched basic YouTube through the TV’s Web Browser application and it is through this method that I got the “We’ll stop supporting this browser …” message. In trying to resolve this I checked for software updates by going to ‘General’ and ‘About this TV’ where I then selected ‘Check for Updates’ but the system response was ‘No updates found’. My take at this point is that unless LG eventually upgrades the Web Browser application, it looks like this method of accessing YouTube may eventually stop working. It might be a good idea to make sure the “Allow Automatic Updates” option is enabled or checked. A Second Way (and this how I fixed my situation): I went under ‘LG Content Store’ on the TV, searched for the basic YouTube application and installed it. At first it was a bit awkward to figure out how to navigate the app. but after about 20 minutes of playing with the different remote buttons, I was able to figure it out. As it turns out, this LG YouTube application seems to be more feature rich and is actually easier and more practical to use than by using the Web Browser. A Third Way: Some time ago I purchased a Roku Streaming Stick+ which also offers the ability to access YouTube. The only issue with this method is that I don’t believe you can use the TV remote to control it (at least I have not figured it out), and for this reason alone, I believe the LG YouTube application is the best solution.

    LG webOS TV UH8500 Software version: 05.30.60. As of last evening YouTube has this piece of information at the top of my home page: "We'll stop supporting this browser soon. For best results please update your browser" Now what am I supposed to do?

    Hi, just bought a new LG OLED and pretty fast noticed that I`ve now chance to change the wallpapers ?!? Really pretty strange - even the smallest smartphone offers such a feature. The TV has enough USB interfaces - why is it not able to customize this by an own set of pictures ? Can`t be that big rocket science to implement this , especially for such an expensive device this should be a standard feature !!! Or did I miss something in the settings of the TV ?

    Got this this morning from VOD365 "Good Morning Unfortunately we not yet support HbbTV, this is due to change later in the year but as yet we do not have a date." Please keep us posted on Watchdog. The whole situation is a mess.

    There is no simple solution to this. 2018 LG TVs receive the channels 2019 don’t. LG blame Freeview and the broadcasters. Freeview said speak to the broadcaster and the broadcaster said there is not problem with their broadcast standards. The fact that these channels are available on older LG’s and the latest Samsung’s and Panasonic suggest it is an LG issue to fix. LG so far have been dismissive of this issue and do not plan to change it. I think the best way to get them to rethink is though public awareness as there is no way of knowing about this issue before you purchase an LG. I have reported this to BBC Watchdog and if enough of us do this the it may get some air time. As make use of social media to let people know that the latest LG do not revive all Freeview channels

    For channels being provided on, what they claim is HbbTV, my old LG TV (a 24MT57S) receives them loud and clear in MHEG. Maybe the providers mean they are on MHEG now, and will also be on HbbTV somewhere in the future, once they've been tested. Most of these channels say they can be accessed on t'Internet as well as telly, so perhaps people who need them could go that way. Meanwhile, I wonder if the service platform company is now searching for the plug that's come loose. If things suddenly start working, well done to the person who prodded them!

    I've been browsing adverts for the 49UM7400PLB in other countries and they say it supports MHEG in Ireland only ! For example, https://www.lg.com/ro/tv/lg-49UM7400PLB (LG's own specification in Romanian) says "MHEG (Numai Irlanda)" which is "MHEG (Ireland only)". It may be worth seeing what LG say about other models in Romania, since they're telling everyone except the UK about them. The DTG people, who are pushing the switch to HbbTV in the UK made an announcement in 2017 about it https://dtg.org.uk/mheg-hbbtv-transition/ but somehow these channels haven't moved since then. I think they were more interested in getting TV receivers ready for HbbTV rather than the channel providers. Maybe the channel providers need prodding, since their business is looking a bit slow to join the party.

    It seems to me like the dialog above is circular with LG customers complaining that many streaming web sites issue the same error instructions, "upgrade your browser" and LG basically saying, "Not our problem. Contact the website and tell them to fix the problem." That is not an answer. That is basically a cop out saying, "to bad so sad, it not our problem". I really love my new LG TV. S But I didn't buy the TV to stream movies from my laptop via a HDMI cable. What's the point of purchasing a high end smart TV if the only solution the vendor offers is to either use a "work around" (stream content from another device) or tell the steaming vendor to fix their problem. Come on LG. Have your really checked to see what the problem really is with your TVs not being able to stream CBS All Access? Is the problem with CBS All Access that they are streaming with Adobe Flash. I really find this hard to believe. What I do believe LG should be doing is checking out what the problem is and then coming up a a viable solutions for your customers. Do you know why I can stream movies from Disney Plus and not able to stream from CBS All Access? Step up to the plate and give us some answers. If the CBS All Access problem is because they are still using Adobe Flash, then tell us that so we can direct our complaints to CBS to stop using Flash.

    Jio Tv and Airtel Xstream app aren’t available for any smart tv officially. They won’t ever launch for any smart tv including LG. Jio Cinema is a different case and Jio needs to make the app. Sony LIV is under development and its the sony’s development team thats taking time. But it should be available before April.

    Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's. I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message. As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem. My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.

    I have been using the LG 43" UHD Smart TV with WebOS now for about a year. At first it seemed to run fine and continuously while watching all manner of material. Recently I added a Synology NAS Server to my network, and I've noticed interruptions regarding the "must restart the app to free more memory" while running the Plex app. I have tried various things to resolve the problem but the only thing I have found useful is to cut the power "just to the TV". I have my cables tied neatly together with ties, and as I'm not sure which is for the TV at my power strip, I find it easiest just to pull the plug on back of the TV. This should theoretically free up the memory just on the TV's internal memory. After trying this I have been able to watch any content which was previously stopping to free memory, without any problems for a least a couple of days now. If it happens again, the first thing I will try is unplugging the TV for several seconds and try again.

    You can disable transcoding in the native Plex app by setting video to 'original'. There is also an Emby player where transcoding can be disabled on the server but I do not have any experience with that.

    The native player is a bit primitive. The best way is to set up a simple server on your computer and a player on your TV. There are a few examples buy I use Plex. The LG App works great and setting up the server is not to difficult. Subtitles are much better supported. Good luck.

    You can't. Because of copyright reasons all recordings are encrypted and can only be played on the TV they are recorded (as far as I understand it).

    I am not aware of any other native video player on the LG TV. There are a few things you can do: Invest in a ethernet cable and connect the TV to you local network / computer Convert the movie to a format the LG TV understand Buy a Android TV box that can play your movie and connect it to your TV. Good luck

    The native player is a bit primitive. You can better use a third party player like Servio, Plex or others. Self I use the Plex player on the TV and a Plex server on my computer. Works like a charm.

    Dear gents, I can happily confirm that the Cable Matters adapter works flawlessly on the 2019 OLED55C9PLA model, plugged into a usb 2.0 port. LG decided to drop USB 3.0 but, even plugged into a USB 2.0 port, it performs better than the LAN port. With the network cable plugged into the LAN port, and a 40+ GB BluRay movie, i would get buffering every 2 seconds (using DLNA with the SmartShare app installed on my PC). Plugged in the adapter into a 2.0 port, "unknown device connected" and everything works! Netflix, Prime, updates, etc. I do not have wifi configured, it shows wired disconnected and wireless disconnected.

    @dave2336 The TVs have ample memory to store apps and images. I can't conceive of what ethos LG is trying to project with the 1970s era photo choices it has selected for wallpaper. It's certainly wildly different to the ethos projected by the defaults on their smartphones.

    I looked up DLNA and found a list of software that uses it. In the list was PlayOn, which I already have on my computer! I turned on the Media Library and it works great, allowing me to browse the folders where my media is stored. Thanks for getting me moving on this!

    If you use the voice function on the remote and say "screen off" it will also turn off the screen, this seems to be the most efficient way of doing it I've found so far. There needs to be a shortcut button on the remote!

    The built-in webOS Photo & Video app is great: easy to use interface, excellent codec support, good compatibility with other devices on my home network. But it is missing one key feature... Please add support for browsing chapters in *.mp4 (and other file types) as per the following: As a user, I can see a list of chapters in the media file I am currently playing (if there are any) As a user, I can jump to any chapter in the media file I am currently playing As a user, I can easily jump to the next or previous chapter in the media file I am currently playing As a user, the list of chapters includes both chapter number and chapter name (if a chapter name is given in the media file I am currently playing) As a user, I can see which chapter is currently playing both in terms of chapter X of Y and its name As a user, I can see how long (minutes & seconds) each chapter is As a user, I can see how long and how many minutes are remaining in the current chapter As a user, I can briefly see the chapter number/title and duration when I jump to the next or previous chapter

    I just found the answer on another forum --- On 1/13/2019 at 12:35 PM, George Hofmeister said: Ignore the option of trying to download, basically the website is trying to read the browser identification string, failing and then offering you the nearest equivalent it has available. The reason you are being told Chrome is not up to date is that the LG webOS browser is based on WebKit which is Apple's basis for its Safari browser and is used (or soon to be used, I'm looking at you Microsoft Edge) by pretty much every other major browser out there apart from Mozilla's Firefox. Yes webOS is 'nix under the hood, but this does not mean that you can just install a Linux app on the system, it would have to be written and compiled especially for the platform. Thanks, George

    LIKE THOUSANDS OF OTHERS I WANTED TO SAVE MONEY BY CUTTING THE CORD AND GET RID OF CABLE. I GUESS THAT WAS MY FIRST MISTAKE. I SEARCHED ONLINE FOR OVER A MONTH FOR A SMART TV WITHIN MY PRICE RANGE. LOOKED AT EVERYTHING I COULD THINK OF BEFORE I MADE A DECISION. ON EVERY THING I LOOKED AT NOTHING EVER SAID ANYTHING ABOUT THE MEMORY CAPACITY OF ANY SMART TV THAT I LOOKED AT SO I DIDNT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. THAT WAS ANOTHER MISTAKE. I FINALLY DECIDED TO GET AN LG BECAUSE I ALSO HAVE 2 LG SMART PHONES THAT WORK GREAT SO AN LG TV SHOULD BE EVEN BETTER. I JUST KEEP MAKING THESE MISTAKES. WELL I FINALLY DECIDED ON A 55 INCH LG 556090PUA BECAUSE IT WAS WITHIN MY PRICE AND IT CAME WITH A FREE SOUND BAR PROVIDED BY THE ONLINE STORE I BOUGHT IT FROM. WELL I HOOKED EVERY THING UP AND WHEN I STARTED NOSING AROUND IN THE TV SETTINGS THAT IS WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT THIS SMART TV STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOX BEFORE UPDATES AND BEFORE ANY APPS ARE INSTALLED ONLY COMES WITH 0.54 GB OF INTERNAL MEMORY. IM THINKING NOPE THIS HAS TO BE WRONG BECAUSE EVEN MY FIRESTICK HAS ALMOST 5 GB OF MEMORY SO IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR A SMART TV TO HAVE ALMOST 10 TIMES LESS MEMORY THAN A FIRESTICK. .ANOTHER MISTAKE. SO I WENT AND UPDATED 2 APPS THAT CAME PREINSTALLED WITH THE TV. I UPDATED YOUTUBE AND I UPDATED PRIME VIDEO. MY 0.54 FELL DOWN TO 0.42 GB. LG CLAIMS THAT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD APPS ONTO THEIR TVS BUT YET HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE WHEN EVERY PREINSTALLED APP ON THIS SMART TV NEEDS UPDATES BUT IF I UPDATE ANY MORE THAN THE 2 THAT I DID I WOULD BE OUT OF MEMORY AND THE LESS MEMORY THAT YOU HAVE THE SLOWER YOUR DEVICE RUNS. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHO IN BLUE BLAZES EVER THOUGHT TO CALL THIS DUMBER THAN A DUMB TV A SMART TV. SO NOW IN ORDER TO SAVE MONEY I HAVE TO SPEND MONEY. SCRATCHING MY HEAD ON THAT ONE. BUT IN ORDER FOR THIS SMART TV TO BE SMART I HAD TO BUY A FIRESTICK SO I CAN INSTALL PROGRAMS ON IT TO WATCH AS WELL AS BUY AN EXTERNAL MEMORY CARD TO SAVE THINGS TO. ITS A JOKE. THE SMARTEST THING ABOUT THIS TV IS LG ITSELF WHO DECIDED TO MAKE A DUMB TV AND PUT A SMART TV PRICE TAG ON IT. BECAUSE LG KNEW THAT A STUPID GUY LIKE MYSELF WOULD BUY IT FROM THEM AS LONG AS THEY JUST FUDGED THE DETAILS A LITTLE BIT. SO ME BUYING A SMART TV LEFT ME WITH 2 EMPTY POCKETS WITH NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT A SMART TV WITH ITS OWN VERSION OF THE SCARECROWS CLASSIC ON THE WIZARD OF OZ SINGING IF I ONLY HAD A BRAIN. AND LG THEY ARE LAUGHING AT ME THE ENTIRE TIME AS THEY ARE RUNNING THEMSELVES ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK TO DEPOSIT MY CHECK AND CALLING ME A SUCKER. SO PAT YOURSELVES ON THE BACK LG. I ADMIT IT YOU GOT ME. BUT THAT MISTAKE WILL NEVER BE MADE AGAIN BY ME. AND ALSO IN HOPES OF OTHERS NOT MAKING THE MISTAKE THAT I DID I HAVE MADE POSTS ON REDDIT FACEBOOK YOUTUBE AND TWITTER ABOUT LG STEALING MONEY OUT OF A WORKING MANS POCKETS AND I AM NOT DONE BADMOUTHING LG YET. SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWS MY VARIOUS POSTS HAVE GIVEN ME NEW IDEAS ON HOW I CAN GET MY MESSAGE OF LG RIPPING PEOPLE OFF. I DONT GET MAD I GET EVEN. YOU STOLE MONEY FROM ME SO I AM STEALING POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS FROM YOU JUST BY SPEAKING THE TRUTH. OF COURSE LG IF YOU WANT YOU COULD TRY AND SUE ME FOR TRYING TO BESMIRCH THE LG LOGO. BUT IF YOU DO THAT IT WOULD ONLY MAKE LG LOOK EVEN WORSE AND I CAN GUARANTEE YOU THAT IF I GET SUED THAT ALL THAT YOU WILL GET PAID BY ME WOULD BE MONTHLY INSTALLMENTS OF POCKET LINT BECAUSE THAT IS ALL THAT YOU LEFT ME WITH WHEN YOU SOLD ME A DUMB TV WITH A SMART PRICE TAG. BUNCH OF DAMN WANKERS.

    I just posted two pics with my original post that clearly shows that this TV fresh from the store came only with 0.54Gb of internal memory like I said the model number for this is 55UK6090PUA. Not 55UK6090PUB as you posted in response to me that is just LG trying to discredit what I say about how they try to rip people off so no I'm not going to calm down LG is nothing but a bunch of crooks who wants to rip people off of their hard-earned money and I stand by that statement and I've got all the proof I need to back it up

    Dears Kindly note that I purchased LG smart TV just to watch Tv series and programs in Shahid application, which unfortunately is not existed in Web OS! This application is the most popular here in the UAE and Arab countries. Having it will increase sales of LG smart Tvs! Honestly, I am thinking to replace my new LG TV with Samsung just for this application! Best regards Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I recently asked LG support to look into this for me, and though I don't have my hopes up for full 4.x on the 2016 and 2017 sets (be it a matter of performance, developer time, or lack of customer complaints), it would *really* be nice to at least get a teaser or two (like Assistant and Alexa support) backported to 3.3 and 3.5. LG could certainly earn some valuable loyalty points by falling in with the cool kids- the ones who roll out major system updates for years ;)

    There is a built-in web browser that is the only one you will be able to use. Again if you are not going to be able to view sites that use Adobe Flash or sites that do not cater for the webOS browser, in both of these cases you need to approach the site owners to improve their site.
