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

      I use Enigma2 for watching TV, recording etc.
      Is WebOS an alternative?
      Enigma2 can:
      Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
      Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
      Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
      NAS instead of USB HDD.
      Unencrypted recordings.

      LG Signed a deal with Luxoft yesterday to bring webOS to new verticals such as automotive, robotics, and the smart home. Very interesting development and a clear expansion of how webOS will be used in the future for not only TVs, projectors, and appliances. Below is the press release from the Luxoft website.

      Next-generation webOS operating system will target vehicles, robots and smart devices
      IFA, Berlin, GERMANY -- 31 August, 2018 -- Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a global IT service provider, has partnered with LG Electronics Inc., a multinational electronics company, to help create the next generation webOS as part of a strategy to extend its capabilities and ecosystem into the automotive, robotics and smart home verticals.
      LG Electronics has previously deployed webOS in over 60 million LG smart TVs and digital signage displays worldwide and this install base is growing rapidly. As a strategic partner, Luxoft is bringing technical assets as well as experience in designing and deploying software platforms for a wide variety of products and services.
      “Thanks to our collaboration with Luxoft, we are able to bring webOS into automotive and beyond,” said I.P. Park, Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics. “Luxoft is providing a substantial technological contribution to webOS and has also greatly enhanced our ability to deploy it into new industries.”
      Luxoft will lead the deployment of webOS into the new, targeted sectors, beginning with automotive. Initially focusing on digital cockpit development – which includes infotainment, navigation, and other features that are human-car interaction-centric – Luxoft and LG Electronics also plan to introduce the new platform into the robotics and smart home sectors.
      “We’re already leveraging LG Electronics’ thriving smart TV eco-system to customize and enhance webOS so it provides an innovation canvas for car manufacturers to develop next-generation autonomous vehicles,” said Mikael Söderberg, Senior Technical Director, Automotive at Luxoft. “Having access to webOS and its cloud services platform will enable car makers to design and develop better customer experiences for autonomous mobility services.”
      With both technology and specific industry expertise, the Luxoft and LG partnership is helping provide more ways for businesses across multiple sectors to digitize.
      “Underlying this partnership is a shared desire to make it easier for manufacturers to innovate with technology. This platform gives them the flexibility to make digital changes. This will help accelerate the mobility revolution, improve human-robotic interactions and make smart devices even smarter,” concluded Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft.

      I'm developing an app for LG WebOS, and at one point I load the content dynamically, ajax, and with it also appears the input for search. It turns out that even with the input focused, the keyboard does not appear. Is there a Javascript method to call the virtual keyboard?
