Problems with streaming


ghoul199

Question

Hi.

I own a LG 42LB650V and I have some problems with streaming. I am streaming using SmartShare.

The first issue:

When I am streaming 720p videos everything is ok, but when I want to watch a 1080p video which is a couple GB larger, it's so laggy that I can't watch. It's like 3 seconds of movie>10 sec lag>3 secs of movie> 10 sec lag etc. What can I do with it? Should I use a different DLNA server like Serviio? I am a newbie in this stuff, it's my first Smart TV and so far I'm really disappointed.

The second issue:

SmartShare is sharing with TV only the folders that I choose in its options. But when I put new files to the folder, in order to make it visible in the app, I need to go to SmartShare settings, delete the folder from there, click 'Apply', then add it again. Is there no simplier way?

Thank you for your answers and sorry for my english if I made any mistakes

Hi guys, 

 

I know that this is an old topic, but it seems that my question is fitting here.

My goal is to watch sopcast streams via my PC. Every time I open a sopcast stream on my PC can be accessed in the network by "any" player via the following URL:

How can I open a stream URL on my LG 47LB650V?

 

Thanks in advance.

      Recently live channels stopped working with an error every 2-3 seconds. 
      Older media is still playing. 
      Now I noticed that new media like today's news aren't playing either. Same error. 
      News from Friday 3rd may still work.

      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.

      Hi,
      I recently bought an LG UK6500PLA TV (my first LG), but I have a difficult time streaming content (Wifi connected), e.g. Netflix series is streaming in low resolution.  The router is only 10 feet away from TV (but ethernet is not an option) and uses a 5GH frequency range.
      I have tried making a speed test at fast.com, for both the TV (through the Webbrowser) and for my laptop and iPhone. The speed test for TV showed 2.5 Mbps and my laptop and iPhone showed 110 Mbps. Can there really be such a big difference? I am starting to wonder if this might be a warranty issue?
      Do any of you guys have experience with bad Wifi reception on your LG TV or have any suggestions on how to fix it?

      Good evening everyone, Since yesterday I have a problem that is driving me crazy. I have the smart TV in question and I can practically no longer see any content from any platform except YouTube, let me explain. If I open Netflix I see everything correctly but when I launch any content the TV loads up to 20-25% then gives me an error stating that that content cannot be played. Same problem with Disney+, the app tries to load any video then gives me an error, try again, same thing with Amazon prime. Basically only YouTube works. I'll list what I did: - Fully updated TV, fully updated apps - I unplugged and waited, nothing - I reset to factory settings, nothing - I changed 3 different networks, two wifi and one wired, changed 3 different DNs, inserted manual IPs, put back DHCP, nothing - I uninstalled and reinstalled the apps, nothing. The network works because the TV runs all the tests and is connected stably to my fiber. It's a problem that not even LG support can tell me about. I don't know what to do anymore, all that remains is to think of a firmware/hardware problem. Can you give me some advice? Thank you Roberto

      I can't open settings on my LG B9 55" either from the remote (results in black screen) or from menu system (same). Also, when I click on any streaming app, nothing happens although the buttons on the remote otherwise work. I would like to try a factory reset, but can't do this without accessing the system menu. If you know how to factory reset without the menu or otherwise know a fix, please let me know!
