We need DS Video app for Sinology NAS. samsung already has it.  

Hi, We need this app for our tv!  @LG TEAM When wil be this app available? Please Thanks very much.

It's really a shame that LG TV can't have a DS Video app. I think that my LG 55c6v is almost perfect in my home chain, but it miss DS Video app to be really perfect.

^^^  I always use the DS Video app on my phone and just cast to the TV.  Why would having the app on the TV make it any better?  I find the response to apps on the phone and casting much quicker than comparable apps on my LG TV.

Other family members could access it, if your phone died you could still access it, if your phone breaks you can still access it, guests could access it, kids could put on their own movies, everyone can decide what to watch together looking through the choices on the screen, if you lose your phone you can still access it, a long way down the line if the phone app no longer functions or something happens to android/apple it would nice for the tv to be somewhat self sufficient

I'd love this app available on LG and file types like m4a songs should really be able to be played as it's an open source format so free to use . I hear samsung have both these on their tv already...

Yes, Plex is an alternative, but it is not free, DS Video is!

Plex Media Server, players for desktops and streaming devices all free.

What do cost money are Plex Pass and mobile apps.  Plex Pass is not essential for day to day use, but the ability to sync content to mobile devices makes it well worth the money in my opinion.  If you are on the Plex mailing list they occasionally run promotions, my lifetime membership cost considerably me $74.99 instead of $119.99.  When it comes to the mobile apps, well they are not not exactly expensive.  

Of course you have to have a Synology device that is supported by Plex so it is not the be all and end all.

A article on Plex Pass will tell you whether or not you need it:

Today I have an old sony, with 5V line issues (so no USB, no WI FI, etc...).

I am using DS Video from Android and IOS, streaming to a chrome cast, the same way I am watching YouTube or Netflix today.

I intend to buy a new TV and for now the main option is OLED55C8P, a very expensive model in Brazil.

My Sony with chromecast goes to my son's room and I would like to use my wide content in DS918+ directely to my new (probably LG) TV, with DS Video, that in my personal opinion is better than Plex.

It wolud be great if LG and Synology work togheter to achieve this.

      I recently purchased LG commercial TV UTc640s (Asia) and found out that content store is missing and thus can’t even run a simplest application such as Netflix, is there any way we can update firm ware or something to add the content store or am I stuck with that very expensive smart box, that can’t even run a Netflix ? Kindly help please.

      Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
      I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
      As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
      My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.

      After updating to the latest web browser with new UI, closed caption subtitles on ALL websites video including Youtube.com disappears every 2-3mins. Video continues to play without subs and subs will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
