Smartshare audio track change problem

Recommended Posts

How to change audio language?

I Was watching a film. (Mkv)

I stopped playback.

Tv said there is firmware update. I updated to firmware 04.30.09.

Later i wanted to continue the film, but the audio language changed to english. I can not switch It back to to original. The audio icon in the menu is inactive (like It was always).

Im playing the film through Dlna from my NAS.

Any ideas, how to Change language?

I have the same problem after update.

I can't switch language from english when playing mkv over DLNA from my PC HDD.

It can be fixed if I delete all audio except required languge from mkv file.

I think that is new firmware bug.

I have the same issue. The local support told me unfortunately the DLNA client does not support switching audio streams. However, watching the same MKV from USB works fine, I can switch between audio streams.

 

Hopefully they'll solve this problem in the DLNA client because I don't want to remove additional audio streams from each and every MKV I have.

Ok, no changing Tracks on DLNA, but I checked the MKV file with MKVMerge.

My wanted audio track was the first, it had the same language whitch is set default on TV, and it was the default audio Track in MKV.

So it seems WebOS picks audio track randomly. (or it always picks the English Track...)

I hope it will change soon.

It's closer to random. Mostly it chooses English but there are cases when other streams come out as winners. FYI, I've created a shell script to easily create a copy of an MKV file with the video and one audio stream. It's on GitHub: https://gist.github.com/csiknor/ad9d9db0f0f2cb9767a6

I have updated to the latest firmware but the issue is still there. I have an MKV with multiple audio tracks and the playback starts with the english one not the local language (the language settings are set to define hungarian as the local language).

I have local language plaing with my mkv files now. Not sure how DLNA client select tracks to play but each mkv file has adio "track#" and "default" property for each audio track.

My files have local languge as track #1 and its "default " property = yes.

Hi! I started having this annoying issue on my 42" 42LA740S after an update, probably the same as you. Out of the box it was possibile to switch language and subtitles while streaming (I use Plex as media server on my PC). I'm trying to get an answer from the LG italian support, but I expect nothing  :unsure:

 

I think they removed this functionality from the DLNA player for some reason, and they are never putting it back  :huh: 

Maybe if we flood the support with emails.... :D

edit: I found this article explaining how to downgrade TV firmware 

http://blog.techflaws.org/2014/05/26/firmware-downgrade-for-lg-smart-tvs/

 

I'm not new to this kind of thing, but I think is a little dangerous because there is no "recovery mode" or a way to flash the firmware directly from a pendrive USB, but you need to trick the TV to make it download a specific version of the software from your PC instead of LG official website.

Actually, with the latest software update the whole issue has has been resolved for me. I'm able to select audio track and subtitles provided in the MKV files.  :)

Are you sure it works streaming from a DLNA server like Plex? I just received last update (04.27.05) but this ain't changed. What is your software version?

 

I attach a detailed screenshot of my sw version  :)

Yes, I'm using my NAS as the DLNA server. It used to be the case that I was unable to change audio tracks, although the TV could handle multiple audio tracks when I used the same file via USB instead of DLNA.

 

Please hav my software version as following:

It's not immediately obvious but you CAN change the subtitles and audio track on Web OS 4.0.0.0. Here is how:

 

1) In Smartshare, choose a video and play it.

2) When Playing a video, click on the Additional Options icon. It's a left arrow Icon (<--) at the bottom right of the player.

3) Once you click the left arrow, it's clear. You can select the Subtitle option or Audio options. If the icons are disabled, it means it the video doesn't have addiitonal subtitles/audio.

 

That's it. I hope that helps.

Hello everyone. I am having the same issue as everyone. Change language track is disabled in the menu. I am pretty sure I was able to do that a couple of months ago. Probably I updated the firmware. The TV is a LG 32LB580B-SA-SA_37. Firmware is 04.02.06 and Tv says there is no update available

    • Question: Pages reload on switch

      Hi, I own an LG Smart TV (43LK5900PLA) and I seem to have an issue with the browser. If I have more than one tab opened if I switch between them, they refresh / reload. The thing is this doesn't always happen and I haven't been able to figure out why. One thing is for sure - it is really, really, REALLY annoying and makes browsing the internet impossible on websites that have pop-ups. You may ask why. Well, because they usually open a pop-up whenever you make your first click. Pop-ups open in a new tab and the browser automatically switches to it. After closing (or going to the initial website tab) it reloads and .. well.. the pop-up again. Also, it's impossible to check e-mails and open links too. Same story. You click on a link, a new tab opens and when you go back to the e-mail it reloads and the e-mail is opened no more. Like I said, this doesn't happen every time. 90% of the times, regardless of what sites I open, of what I have opened when the browser opens. The LG webOS is up to date and I've tried clearing the history and 'clearing the cache ' in the browser. Nothing works so I'm pretty disappointed. Thanks in advance.

      Hello Forum Friends   I have attached a wireless keyboard to my LG Smart Tv, and when I am in for instance in the web browser and typing something in the URL field each time I hit the spacebar it changes my language. I have english and danish as the two keyboard choices. I cannot not chose english, it is greyed out. So I cannot run just danish. However if I unmark the danish in chose keyboards in the settings menu and run just english keyboard, the spacebar still does not work. Anybody have a solution to fix this problem. I have looked in the webbrowser settings and of course the settings menu, to no avail. I have tried another wireless keyboard without luck.   Thankyou for your assistance.

      When we feature a new root method it’s typically for a smartphone. If it’s not a smartphone then it could be a tablet, smartwatch, or an Android TV set-top box. However, more and more devices are starting to become “smart,” which essentially means they have some sort of extra software feature that previously wasn’t possible. This could be a light bulb that can be controlled by our smartphone or a TV that has applications you can install.

      A few months ago LG announced a partnership with Luxoft to create webOS Auto for automotive infotainment type of uses. This week at CES 2019, visitors got an initial look at what webOS Auto is all about. Continue reading the article from Mobile Syrup below:

      It’s now old news that webOS has the potential to play a role in automotive infotainment, but seeing it in action was an interesting paradox. It’s strange seeing the webOS logo on a vehicle, even if it is a concept. If there’s one platform that’s been around the block, so to speak, it’s webOS. From its inception through Palm, to its collapse with HP, and ultimately renewed lease on life with LG, it’s since been defined as a smart TV interface. That looks to be changing. Luxoft, a Swiss developer, partnered with LG on this project of porting over the smart TV platform to in-car use. It’s not even close to a direct port, so don’t assume it has the same look. This looks very different, and it was evident to me that it’s still early days for the viability of the setup.


      A different look  - For starters, Luxoft demoed this in a unique concept vehicle — basically a pod that can sit on top of a rolling set of wheels the company calls a “skateboard.” The idea is that pods can be used to move people and goods with automated machines laying and removing the pods as necessary. It’s a bit confusing, but that’s secondary to the platform inside. Three screens make up the system. One is the user’s phone, one a large touchscreen on the dash, and a curved display taking up half the windshield. Users first order the vehicle through an app (with blockchain) where they can unlock the doors and then integrate their handset by scanning a QR code on the dash’s touchscreen.


      Amazon’s Alexa, which is built-in to webOS Auto, confirms the connection and displays a home screen. The curved display showed a map, supplied by HERE, to indicate the vehicle’s location. A Luxoft rep then gave a verbal command through Alexa to navigate to a destination. While the pod was theoretically driving, he verbally ordered a drink from a Vegas hotel and booked a tour of the Strip. The idea is that passengers can engage with services while they ride, using Alexa or the touchscreen to do them at any time. Whether it’s booking something, listening to music through Spotify or watching video on Netflix and Amazon Prime, a lot can be plugged in. It’s like having a virtual concierge during every ride. Luxoft’s other partnerships are part of the mix here, like the PELUX and Qt Auto platforms, for instance. But this is really more of a middleware play. Luxoft helped develop the newer MBUX system Mercedes-Benz has rolled out recently. As a middleware provider — not unlike BlackBerry’s QNX — Luxoft was simply showing what webOS Auto could do. What it could look like would depend on what automakers or mobility services companies want. Another German automaker is expected to make an announcement regarding webOS in the spring, so we’ll get news soon.


      LG and Microsoft team up In a separate, yet related, announcement, LG will be putting Microsoft’s AI and Azure cloud service into its emerging automotive infotainment platform. The same aforementioned German automaker is on board with this, and the feature set will include smarts for the driver assistance and cameras in whichever vehicle runs the system. Where Azure fits in is to process data faster on the fly, like recognizing pedestrians, lines, signs and much more. It will also involve Azure’s Virtual Assistant Solution Accelerator, a voice-activated framework that is supposed to give drivers useful data, like traffic, music, and points of interest. Neither gave too much detail beyond the basics, but it looks like LG is gunning for Samsung (among others) in the automotive arena.
