Question

Since two weeks or so, finally the WebOS store became available in the Netherlands. Unfortunately for me some very desired apps are still missing. 

 

These apps are:

 

- Soundcloud

- Spotify

- IMDB

 

Does anybody know if they are to be released in the Netherlands soon? Are they already available in other countries? In the web browser both Spotify and Soundcloud cannot be used because flash is not supported. Will there be flash support in the future?

 

Before WebOS I used a Western Digital Live TV media player, WebOS is such a relieve in comparison to the WD media player.

 

If these apps become available soon, WebOS is for sure the best smart-tv OS.

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

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.

SmartShare as a viewer for TV Shows and Movies is a really bad experience. You cannot see them in a folder view. All your TV episodes are in one screen, having to scroll down for ages to get to an episode. I am not sure what LG developers were thinking when they were designing this UI. It should have a File Explorer view.

I think having a steam streaming app would be awesome, being able to plug your controller into the tv and use steam in home streaming without having to use a pc would make webos the best tv os ever.

My old TV was a 2011 LG whith medialink (PLEX) it's a shame that in 2014s models like my 49LB87 you can´t use it.

 

But yes, it is possible to see the folders in your PMS in a 2014 TV. Don't use smartshare app directly, you got to go to "Device Connector" and then "PC" ... then smartshare connects to your computer, but now it's able to see the folders... (excuse me for my english!)

p.s. for those whishing for a plex app. Until it is there, I always open the browser on my tv and visit www.plex.tv. That works very well for me.

 

Other things on my whishlist besides Plex:

- flash support for browser

- di.fm app

- stumbleupon

- a microsoft OneDrive picture viewer app

 

And on top of my whishlist would be (besides plex):

 

- an app that streams the sound of whatever is playing on the tv to your smartphone via wifi. So I can plug in earphones on my smartphone and watch a show without disturbing my wife

Actually this is possible.

 

When you start SmartShare, you can click on the left on "All", after this you see circle icons in the upper right, with one of these you can change the view to "folderview", which will result in what you are looking for =).

Just want to let you guys know the Spotify app is available in the Netherlands (so probably in many other countries too). I find it pretty slow and why there is no option to cast songs from your smartphone?

 

My suggestion is buying Chromecast for easy casting of songs from Spotify and Soundcloud (Chromecast is only €35 in the Netherlands). There is still no casting option in both the official apps but with the My Cloud Player app and Spoticast app it is easy to finally cast music to your TV.

 

I hope many LG WebOS apps and also Android and iOS apps will support casting in the future. I use it a lot (Youtube in WebOS and Spotify and Soundcloud in Chromecast).

A decent video/photo gallery app that both looks better and works much better than the truly awful "smartshare". I would prefer a "Pictures hub" that aggregates pictures from whatever source you select. Then you can sort by tag, date, location whatever using a pivot menu or something like that.

 

The concept with smarthub is just awful, and the whole interface is really bad....

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.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=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...

      I use Enigma2 for watching TV, recording etc.
      Is WebOS an alternative?
      Enigma2 can:
      Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
      Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
      Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
      NAS instead of USB HDD.
      Unencrypted recordings.

      LG Signed a deal with Luxoft yesterday to bring webOS to new verticals such as automotive, robotics, and the smart home. Very interesting development and a clear expansion of how webOS will be used in the future for not only TVs, projectors, and appliances. Below is the press release from the Luxoft website.

      Next-generation webOS operating system will target vehicles, robots and smart devices
      IFA, Berlin, GERMANY -- 31 August, 2018 -- Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a global IT service provider, has partnered with LG Electronics Inc., a multinational electronics company, to help create the next generation webOS as part of a strategy to extend its capabilities and ecosystem into the automotive, robotics and smart home verticals.
      LG Electronics has previously deployed webOS in over 60 million LG smart TVs and digital signage displays worldwide and this install base is growing rapidly. As a strategic partner, Luxoft is bringing technical assets as well as experience in designing and deploying software platforms for a wide variety of products and services.
      “Thanks to our collaboration with Luxoft, we are able to bring webOS into automotive and beyond,” said I.P. Park, Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics. “Luxoft is providing a substantial technological contribution to webOS and has also greatly enhanced our ability to deploy it into new industries.”
      Luxoft will lead the deployment of webOS into the new, targeted sectors, beginning with automotive. Initially focusing on digital cockpit development – which includes infotainment, navigation, and other features that are human-car interaction-centric – Luxoft and LG Electronics also plan to introduce the new platform into the robotics and smart home sectors.
      “We’re already leveraging LG Electronics’ thriving smart TV eco-system to customize and enhance webOS so it provides an innovation canvas for car manufacturers to develop next-generation autonomous vehicles,” said Mikael Söderberg, Senior Technical Director, Automotive at Luxoft. “Having access to webOS and its cloud services platform will enable car makers to design and develop better customer experiences for autonomous mobility services.”
      With both technology and specific industry expertise, the Luxoft and LG partnership is helping provide more ways for businesses across multiple sectors to digitize.
      “Underlying this partnership is a shared desire to make it easier for manufacturers to innovate with technology. This platform gives them the flexibility to make digital changes. This will help accelerate the mobility revolution, improve human-robotic interactions and make smart devices even smarter,” concluded Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft.

      I'm developing an app for LG WebOS, and at one point I load the content dynamically, ajax, and with it also appears the input for search. It turns out that even with the input focused, the keyboard does not appear. Is there a Javascript method to call the virtual keyboard?
