  1. I checked out the video you referenced above; "4K Video ❤ Beauty of Nature" First thing's first, that video is RIDICULOUSLY beautiful! I stood there dumbfounded. It was jaw-dropping! Problem #1: On a more technical note, this video has issues being loaded into the buffer. Something is definitely wrong utilizing DASH* on this video. The first few times it wouldn't even play. It would just show a frozen image at precisely 45 seconds in. I had to tickle DASH into working properly again by scanning backwards to 0:00. This forced a buffer purge, and then video reloaded, correctly this time. T
  2. Yes, I mentioned that in my post; "Display Video Info" will display the video resolution you are viewing and the codec. You stated that it will never play 4K. I can testify that it does, in fact, play 4k YouTube videos. Proof: http://screencast.com/t/xtFcUUdcrcGH I apologize for the angle; I took a picture of my TV screen with my mobile phone. I truly regret that you are having trouble, but perhaps I can help... In a different post I mentioned an LG glitch which prevented me from getting UHD on the Amazon app. It was the same reason I didn't get UHD/4k from Youtube as well, in
  3. I don't know why you don't have the store if you have WebOS. Perhaps you have to run through the setup again; I think there may be some caveats to the TV turning on the "Store" app? I am on WebOS2. I am under the impression that the store is installed with WebOS so long as you complete the initial setup.
  4. If the video is available in 720, 1080, or higher, it will automatically display in HD so long as you have ample bandwidth and you subscribe to an internet speed sufficient enough to stream these resolutions. You can check your streams by going to "Settings" >> "Display Video Info." This should show you all the info you need to know in order to determine what the problem is.
  5. I am not sure what you mean by "It happens to apps also store to at new install" but I had failed installs and glitches with some updates for the Amazon and Netflix apps. It was due to the fact I updated these apps before updating my firmware (WebOS) I ended up uninstalling everything and re-installing and never had the issue again. Your issue may be different, but that is the only problem I had. No issues since. My TV is a 65UF8500 though.
  6. Well, it is not "bad" as it is more "sensitive." It's not VLC, that's for sure. It likes h.264/h.265 of the MP4 variety and it is particular about the audio stream it can handle. This isn't a surprise as many blu-ray players, smart Tv's, streaming boxes, etc have players that will only handle a handful of file types well. This has everything to do with the speed of the processor they have to work with and the software they are running. The good news is that any device that is certified to handle HEVC (h.265) well, can most certainly have a better player. I have not come across any official pla
  7. 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! :-)
  8. Oh, and once you "see" actual 4k in your home...you will HATE 1080p. When I say "HATE," I mean to use a stronger word, but need to check the dictionary to find it. Be warned
  9. I have the same model LG as you, 65UF8500. HBOGO is not available on WebOS 2.0. Currently, the only "premium" apps available are the big 4.. Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Vudu. The first two mentioned, Netflix and Amazon, offer UHD/4k streaming. One glitch to note.. between updating your TV's WebOS and your apps, Amazon can get glitched where it won't qualify you for UHD and you won't have access to the UHD library. To fix this, just uninstall the Amazon app (you don't even have to unlink your account) and then re-install the app and voila! :-) HBOGO isn't offering 4k yet...but stay tuned....a
