URGENT PLEX APP


m571

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I for one would also really love to have a working plex app for my lg webos tv.

Right now via dlna I can't get (auto downloaded by plex media server) subtitles, I can't resume where I last stopped viewing and I can't see which episodes I already viewed.

 

For those reasons I really wish to have a plexx app real fast. Also, plex interface is a lot nicer with album covers and fanart and imdb movie information etc.

Yes, a proper Plex app will be nice.

 

In the meantime, you can use the browser to browse to your Plex server and get the Plex web app. It's a little slow to browse but otherwise works fine.

 

Or, what I have done, is to get a Chromecast. Now I can browse Plex on my iPad or Android phone and cast to the TV. It works for YouTube too, allowing a better YouTube browsing experience than the TV's app has.

I have an apple TV. Can i stream from my iPad using the plex app to my TV? 

 

Some of my movie files are on MKV particularly the 3D titles.

Just bought a LG 47LB730V, Brilliant except no Plex app to be seen to my disappointed, out of all the apps, I realy thought that there would be a Plex App Available,

however I am using my Roku 3 connected to it for plex and it runs smoothly, Would like the Plex Smart App though.

      Hi, today I've lost about 8 hours trying find out how to open an rtsp of an IP camera into a new 65" OLED TV, which is updated to the latest FW. Tons of apps for IPTV but none of them is able to open a working/tested RTSP, also including it into a playlist m3u file. Nobody in this world has thought to display an RTSP on a LG TV? Looks unbelievable.

      I've read a bout "webOS Signage and LG" but no ide how to implement it, install it, nowhere it is described.
      I need to display an rtsp stream on LG tv, I have the chance only woth an external device by HDMI or DLNA? That's a shame..
      Thank you for help

      When playing files using the built-in media player on the LG C1, webOS 6, the support for AV1 and any kind of 7.1 audio is really lackluster:

      In particular, when playing AV1 videos encoded using aomenc (the official AOM encoder) with the setting --enable-keyframe-filtering=2, there is a 10-15 second video freeze when starting playback and when seeking. The audio plays immediately from the moment where the video will eventually un-freeze and sync up. This encoder settings does universally mess with seeking, to some extent, particularly limiting seeking to each keyframe/GOP, but to mess up playback THAT much is not seen in any other mobile, desktop, or TV media player. This seriously needs fixing.

      And another similarly atrocious flaw of the player, is that files with 7.1 audio do not play at all. I do not have a surround system, but it is expected that surround audio files are downmixed to your current audio setup, which does happen with 5.1 audio, but for whatever reason, if there is any 7.1 track in the file - it simply will not play. Which, again, is a behavior I have not seen on any other TV media player.
      Lastly, PGS subtitle format is not supported by the media player, and such subtitles will not show up in the list. Which again just seems like laziness, though it's not as major of an issue.

      I use BT Headphone with LG OLED C1 TV Webos 6.  It would be nice if I could also see its battery level next to volume level on the screen

      For a +1000$ TV, the subtitles system for the media player is not okay.
      1) The subtitles delay can only go in – time. No + (later). So if the subtitles come too early, you cannot improve it. It should be possible to control by 50ms or at least 100ms instead of only half seconds.
      2) The font is just bad. Not super legible, with inconsistent spacing (the space between letters is sometimes big, sometimes small), and a pretty bad design overall. Offer more fonts to choose, like other brands do.
      3) The smallest size possible is still relatively big. Why not give more control options? Maybe selecting the exact size by increments of 2 points instead of 6-7 options.
      4)  It should be possible to decide if subtitles have an outline or not, or shadow, just overall more control depending on personal taste and the film one watches. Just color is simply amateurish for this price.
      5) Offer more options to place to font even lower on the screen. I've seen others request this.
      Please LG, improve this in a firmware upgrade. Currently subtitles ruin my film experience. Thanks in advance.
