Smart Share Improvements

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I'm really impressed with WebOS, though I have noticed a few bugs.

However, the Smart Share feature really needs work. Here are some suggestions, covering the most important areas:

  1. Easy access to content!  This is the worst part right now and I can see a couple of ways to fix it:
    1. Add Smart Share shortcuts to the Launcher Bar.  These could include one or more of these options:
      1. DLNA server, folder & view type
      2. DLNA server, folder
      3. DLNA server
    2. Alternatively, completely redo the top-level of Smart Share
      1. Start with list of DLNA/content servers
      2. Allow users to create shortcuts to specific servers, folders with/without view type
  2. Retain view-type selection! Right now, this defaults to "list view" after you power-cycle, etc.
  3. Better use of screen area at the top
    1. It shows the current folder in big text, how about showing (in a different text color but still large text) the select folder underneath that
    2. Make it more clear that the tab on the left is a tab/button that goes back to the previous device or folder
  4. Fast-forward and rewind
    1. I think the scrubber works but I don't see why these are greyed out?

Thanks!

It would be nice addition , & I would also like to add that every time I open a file in smart share , its aspect ratio needs to be changed to my preferences full screen settings, it resets every time I turn off & On the TV.

Better photo management with next photo prebuffered , so that it shouldn't show loading symbol while going to next photo. & Also photo resolution option to "fill the screen" .

These three additions would be really helpful.

    • Disney Plus on LG webOS TVs

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus

      To all, I hope someone can help me. We recently bought an oled55e9 en we are actually quite pleased, apart from the wifi being to slow and sometime dropping.

My problems now: In the menu, under screen sharing, I can only delete existing connections, which we don't have In the smart menu I don't have an app screen sharing I cannot find th

    • Question: WebOS 4 + HBBTV MHEG 2019 FAIL

      Hi All Has anyone with a 2019 model Webos 4.5 or above got any of the Freeview IPTV channels working eg. 211,  261,  265 etc. I am trying to workout if this really is a problem affecting every TV made by LG in 2019 or just a few of us. If it is every LG tv then why are there so few people highlighting and reporting this, If it is just a few of us the maybe is is a set or batch problem. I just struggle to understand why LG would remove functionality from a tv that has more pro

    • Question: WebOS update and 49SM8600

      Hi All, Has anyone had a recent update of the OS on their TV to 4.7.050204 (goldilocks2-gulaga) ? The reason I ask is that the IPTV channels on my TV seem to have borked these channels as I now get "Invalid Service" floating across the screen. I'm pretty sure these channels worked before the update. I'm referring to channels such as Now 90's, Planect Knowledge, The Sports Channel Network etc. So these are NOT APPS but TV Channels showing up on the guide and still show the prog

      I've just bought my new LG 43" UH668V
       
      I've installed the Smart Share software on my PC which is extermely Slow and painful to use. Does everyone get this experience? My PC is high end with powerful CPU and graphics + SSD hard drive.
       
      When I share my music folder the TV doesn't show all the folders and MP3's within it. It stops very short in the list (only showing artists A-H).
      My music folder has 1470 folders and 20,000 music files within it. Are there any limitations to the sharing and is there any workaround that doesn't involve jailbreaks etc.
      Also, when I click music, it appears to give me repeated folder names, instead of following the same folder format my PC has.
       
      I also wanted to ask why LG offers more than one piece of software to share media from my PC to the TV?
      Is one better that the other? I own Nero 2016 - should I use that over LG offer?
      Is there a known media sharing piece of software that out performs all the others - i'm happy to invest in software that handles this perfectly?
       
      Any help is appreciated?

      It would be super handy to have the ability to create a bookmark (a tab on the home menu) to make it easy to return to any location on a DLNA server. It has taken weeks to discover the folder browsing option hidden in Smart Share, but it still requires drilling down through the nested folders to get to the good stuff. A bookmarking feature once you're in a folder would be awesome.
