Hail, i'm web programmer and buy new LGsmart TV about week ago but after searching on internet i cant find any recommended directory structure for Movie,Music or Picture that on my TV shows the Covert of Music/Album or Movie Poster.
I use picard music tagger that save inside the album `cover.jpg` of music album art. but seems be LG web os dosnt show it. How can i show the cover of album music instead of default folder Icon in smartshare part.
I got same question about movie. contain movie poster.
After all LG or any devices must have Linux clients for smartshare .. i use minidlna and lg must support this tiny usefull app to help us to connect lg smart devices like TV.
After all WebOs is also linux based os. we need somthing like windows or mac software on most popular distros like Ubuntu.

I've just bought my new LG 43" UH668V
I've installed the Smart Share software on my PC which is extermely Slow and painful to use. Does everyone get this experience? My PC is high end with powerful CPU and graphics + SSD hard drive.
When I share my music folder the TV doesn't show all the folders and MP3's within it. It stops very short in the list (only showing artists A-H).
My music folder has 1470 folders and 20,000 music files within it. Are there any limitations to the sharing and is there any workaround that doesn't involve jailbreaks etc.
Also, when I click music, it appears to give me repeated folder names, instead of following the same folder format my PC has.
I also wanted to ask why LG offers more than one piece of software to share media from my PC to the TV?
Is one better that the other? I own Nero 2016 - should I use that over LG offer?
Is there a known media sharing piece of software that out performs all the others - i'm happy to invest in software that handles this perfectly?
Any help is appreciated?
I have the following setup:
LG 55EF950V television which is running webOS 2.2.0-1317 (this should be the latest version of the OS).
I have a number of video files on my Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS which I connect to with the TV over DLNA (on the TV this is Smart Share -> Devices -> (NAS))
I can see all the video files and play them etc., however when viewing the list of files I dont see any thumb images even though I have a JPEG image for each file. For example: "My Video.mkv" has a thumb call "My Video.jpg". For collections I put a "cover.jpg" image in the directory (this doesnt work either on the LG TV).
Has anyone else out there managed to get a webOS 2 TV to show video thumb nail images for videos over DLNA?
BTW: this all works when I use a Samsung TV so I dont think it has anything to do with the way the Synology DiskStation DS413 NAS is setup.

I recently bought a LG Smart TV with WebOS (42LB6500) and would like to connect to my external hard disk connected over network. Here is how my home network and devices are setup.
I have a high speed broadband that comes to my WiFi router (D-Link DSL 2750U) with USB support for External HDD. I have connected my Seagate Ex.HDD to this router and I am able to access the drive over WiFi on my smartphone and computer using the network path \\192.168.1.1\... Once connected I am able to use it similar to any mount location, i.e., read/write files, play media, etc., I want to do similarly with my TV, I would like to use this connected Ex. HDD as any other location and would like to achieve following two things at the least without any additional hardware Play media files on this HDD (very very important) Use the HDD as recording device for timeshift/live pause feature (important)
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
