Well, all apple products, the xbox one, the xbox 360, the LG smart tv etc none of these have flash support, nor SIlverlight, which a lot of movie providers use.

 

We just have to wait for the content providers to write apps that can work in these environments without the need for flash. For the LG Webos case, hopefully they will release native apps in the near future...

Flash has two major problems:

  1. As MrNorth noted above, most devices do not support Flash and there are very good reasons for that.
  2. All anyone really cares about is video playback.

We need a video-only version of Flash (which is unlikely to happen) or HTML5 to take over.

 

It would really be best if Flash disappeared entirely.

Lg WebOS hasn't got Flash because i have talked with LG and they say that ADOBE doesn't want to provide them Flash, then i asked why Netcast has flash, they sayed that in that moment ADOBE provided them and as you can see netcast has flash 10 and can't be updated, and the actual version is Flash 15, they sayed that if i talk personaly to adobe, they could help me, so if we all send a mail to adobe, may be they can  provide flash on behalf of clients, so friends, one email can change the way of your TV, so please help me and also send emails to adobe. Hope it helped, 1 like also helps me.

There are no apple products that have flash either...I don't think its as important as it used to be, its more important for websites and streaming services to adapt and change to HTML5. However, it really isn't up to LG but more up to Adobe to allow the licensing. webOS when it was Palm didn't have flash support either for a while. I'm sure it's more involved than LG just including support, there has to be something behind the scenes with licensing and such. All the bigger sites have adapted by changing to newer technology.

Bitterly disappointed!!!!!!!!!

HTML5 may be the future but LG should have forked out for the licencing fee during this transition period or got one of their WebOS monkeys to develop an app to solve to problem.

Or put a big sticker on the side of the box that says "DOES EVERYTHING EXCEPT STREAM WEB CONTENT "

 

Guess I got three options

Wait for a WebOS developer to create a work around.

Dust off my old PC and stick it behind the DUMB TV

Or take the bloody thing back

 

Any suggestions on other reputable brand smart tv's would be appreciated :)

I bought a "first generation" LG Smart TV four years ago and got on to them about this, and now I've bought a 4K model (OK they are nice TVs) and it's really disappointing that nothing's been done. The set surely can't be described as a web browser without this - there are so many sites which use Flash. I love the BBC i-Player but the supplied app does not include the radio, and going to the BBC internet site the radio won't play because that needs the Flash player. I've got a mini-PC backed on to the TV and that does the job but it surely shouldn't be necessary. Whatever the future may be, right now needs the Flash player - wake up LG!

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 3, 2011 – Catering to the creativity of application developers, LG Electronics’ flexible Smart TV platform is taking Adobe MAX by storm. 

At the developers’ conference, LG is engaging Adobe’s developer community as part of a broad effort to welcome them into the LG Smart TV ecosystem and inspire them to create and deliver Adobe® Flash® based applications powered by Adobe AIR® for the LG Smart TV platform in TVs, Blu-ray DiscTM players, home theater systems and set-top devices.

The global leader in connected devices has collaborated with Adobe to enable support for AIR 3 and Flash Player 11 on LG Smart TV platforms for 2012.  This will be enabled through LG’s Smart TV SDK 2.0, which is expected to be available by December."

 

What happened???

All apple products have no flash support. The future is HTML5.

When does future come? ANd what shall we do before the future come?

 

There are web browsers  in apple / android that have flash suppor, and companies (CBC, TSN ....) have their own apps so that people can watch the videos. LG smart TV has no apps and no flash support web browser. Now, I have no way to  watch CBC (web site)'s Olympics streaming in my SMART TV.

I would imagine the issue is trying to get Google or Adobe to provide flash support at a fair price and LG is too cheap to get in to a contract. Had a similar issue a few years ago with a really nice alternative to ROKU which linked any tv to the internet. The problem was their flash was version 10 which was outdated and was still working on a contract for authorization for 11 which made the device useless. I took it back. I'm thinking LG tried to get around it with the Smart Share app between a laptop or smart phone and the tv. But I agree. At this point, there's no excuse for not having flash capability in a web tv. I paid for NFL gamepass and would like to be able to access it through my webOS tv. After all, isn't that why we bought a web f***king television? I think it's time for somebody to get off their profit margin and provide the product they're selling.

LG should have the chromecast build-in, but LG went to Miracast  :angry:

      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

      I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      The NEW Amazon Prime Video App update is horrible. Cannot access any content from my Shudder channel subscription. Constant errors.

      Hi! Thank you for your kind help
      I'm looking for a way to show an IP camera to LG TV, I've updated it to the latest version (WebOS).
      I really hope it is possible without buying an external HDMI box, there is any way to obtain that or install apps from USB? Thank you a lot!
