[Feature Request and Ideas] Add Folders to SmartShare!...


Recommended Posts

Hi LG, your Web OS is really well built, but there are a few essential features lacking.

Such as:

 

- Folder filtering in the SmartShare App (We all need this ASAP, the navigation is a nightmare!).

- Audio stream selection within video files in the SmartShare App.

- A PLEX App the collaborates nicely with the PLEX Client.

 

- Faster start up times. From when you power on the TV to being able to quickly access the home menu and change the Volume, channel, etc.

  If you have to just offer an option to put the TV into a low power state/sleep (for as long as the user wishes) so you can resume quick menu navigation almost straight away.

  (and unlike Sony don't make it so after a few hours of the TV being asleep it fully powers down. (THIS IS NOT USEFULL, and is the reason I took my Sony TV back to JB HI-FI

  And bought yours).

  You could call this feature "PowerAct", or "instant on" it would make 'Life Good' and easier :)

 

- Auto backlight brightness? I have the Australian LB 6500 and I can't seem to find a Auto-Backlight/dimming feature anywhere, and seeing as I use it in my room, when the lights are off 

  I want it to dim so I don't go blind. I don't know if you've implemented a Ambient light sensor or not, but for $1,800 I would think you should have.

 

- If you would Like anymore Feedback/Suggestions, Feature requests or ideas from me then just PM me or write on this thread :)

 

Thank you LG, and thank you for being one of the very few 'Innovative' companies around today.

Audio stream selection from DLNA sources would be a good feature...

Yes! Please make  "Folder view" as default view. Not photos.

The folder structure in Smart Share works. 

Do the following:

1. Click ALL on the left side of the screen.

2. On right hand side, in the upper part, now you see three icons."View Type", "Device Selection" and  "Device connector". 

3. Click on the first one from the left. This is the "View Type" icon. You will see List view and Folder view as options. 

4. Chose "Folder view"

5. Now you have the folder view. All the sources are shown in the main window. If you click on a source you will see the folder structure. On the right hand side you have only two icons now.  

 

Here is a picture showing the step 5.

 With 1 is shown the first step where you have to click "All". . 

 

Enjoy!

How about the possibility to choose "Folder view" as default view? Because now it is veri inconvenient - everytime the Smartshare is opened, you are navigated to thousand of photos displayed in list view..

In smart share "Device view " should be default view,

Fed up of slow things are with just watching media from my TV .

Step.1 turn on TV ,wait for 15 secs to get the launcher ready.

Step 2 get to the smart share & select all devices.

Step 3 go to settings via home key & choose aspect ratio to full screen

Step 4 enjoy my media .

Earlier it was 5 steps with choose view type but latest firmware has fixed it.

Yeah I know lol :(.

Web OS is quite laggy on my system! (Lb6500) 55" 3D.

And it hasn't really gotten much better yet??

Whether it's to do with weak hardware and processors (pretty sure that's it) or software optimisation issue (probably not),

Why the hell did you not put a sufficient PROCESSOR in my $1800 AU dollar TV LG!!!!

Answer me please! Where are all the moderators on this forum, or people who work for LG?

Processor is just dual core , hope there is some on chip card soc for playing ultra HD content of bitrate above 125mbps .

Yesterday we tried to play the 4k video of lg demo via USB HDD , it outputted message as only video will be displayed , "no audio will be played " I was like what it doesn't even support audio with the video.

& the video also had low frame rate my guess would be 15 fps with some msecs shuttering

To its defense the HDD was connected to USB 2.0 port ,will try usb3.0 port & report if possible.

New update is available for country region Australia.

this just shows the devices as folders but not the media in folders. I see that you have a Zyxel NSA 325. I have a NSA 211 and I have a Video folder and then Movies and Series and within  Series I have a folder for each series and then each season. When I browse on SmartShare I see all of my videos in one long list including all the children's shows and movies which I do not want to see when I am looking for a specific grown-up movie or episode.

      After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
      Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
      Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.

      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...?

      Subtitles as well as all html elements beside video disappear on every website after 2 minutes. The only way to bring them back is to activate cursor with magic remote. This started happening around the beginning of July when new LG browser update rolled out. I managed to get around this by resetting TV to factory settings and evading browser update. This worked until 23rd of July when Web OS update came along . Thinking that problem might be solved i installed it. Turns out this update just integrated this browser error into the OS and now even after resetting to factory the problem cant be avoided. LG had just made the error which could be evaded by downgrading browser mandatory instead of fixing it. This is disgrace. If I had a company with 5 employees the update with error would have never entered circulation and even if it did I would not issue another update which would make error impossible to evade. LG has only billions of dollars and tens of thousands of employees and they do not notice such a major problem even after they have been informed by the users.

      Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?
      iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up
      I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.
      Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.
      Interested to hear your thoughts....

      what's new for tv in this update? Does it need to be installed or will it degrade the software capabilities of the TV?

      I can't connect my google home hub to my smart tv(UK6360PTE) don't say, it doesn't support it because it has an inbuilt Google assistant and also the model no is mentioned on the LG website containing the list of supported models. It's a 2018 model. The app named "connect tv to Google assistant" is missing from the home screen. I tried to be over smart (LOL) and asked the voice command for the app it said opening the "connect tv to Google assistant" app and redirected me to the app store but it said not available.
      HELP ME...

      I have a LG TV model: 47LB652V-ZA, webOS version 1.4.0-2523 (afro-ashley). Why isn't Spotify supported for this TV if its from 2014 and it says that devices from 2013 and onwards will be supported
