PreCentral: Galaxy Nexus Open webOS port goes hi-res

Galaxy Nexus Open webOS port goes hi-resWhile we've been watching with glee , there was a part of us that cringed when we installed the on our Galaxy Nexus. See, the phone has a delightful 1280×720 pixel 4.65-inch screen with a beautiful 316 pixels-per-inch resolution. The webOS phone user interface images dredged up and implemented by Josh Palmer, however, were made for the 320-pixel-wide screens of , excepting the (itself 480 pixels across).

If you're amazing at math like we are, you've likely already figured that the UI images we're talking about here (the dock background, rounded corners, etc) are less than half the size than would be required for a screen of the Galaxy Nexus's caliber. Thankfully, we've got guys working with like and who are willing to step up and rebuild the graphical interface items in the proper resolution.

The clunky scaled-up resolution of the UI items in question here wasn't too evident in the video we posted last week of the progress made on the Galaxy Nexus port (in truth we really just wanted to check out the keyboard), the pixelation that comes from scaling up an image by 225% was too much for our fastidious eyes and persnickety interface tastes. So the full-resolution interface elements concocted by Goodell and Duncan are visual music to our sight-spheres. There's still a lot of work to be done to make the Galaxy Nexus port truly useful, but that they're sweating the small stuff so that it looks awesome when it is ready makes us happy campers.

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.

      Hi,
      I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
      Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
      My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
      I tried to use (with no success):
      - Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
      - Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
      - VLC UPnP feature - same as above
      What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.
