Please Help - Hiding Videos for TV


saggyLG

Question

Hi Guys,

  I own LG 47B6500 SmartTV. I have 1TB HDD in which I have stored lots of videos. There are some videos I have hidden using tool called "WinFolder Lock Pro" and they are not viewable on a computer. But when I plug this HDD to my TV and start SmartShare, these vidoes show up in Videos which is big problem. I have tried using simple method of hiding files/folders chaning attribute to Hidden as well but still they show up. Does anyone know a way around this so that videos/pictures can be hidden from this (over)SmartTV...Please help!!

Thank you

Try using the HDD with Windows & then check the folder with properties & check "Hidden" . let me know if it works for you.

 

Thanks for replying buddy.. I have already mentioned that I have tried changing attributes for files/folders in my question which is nothing but same you mentioned here...

Tried other methods too, nothing stays hidden from Linux and this Smart(ass) TV :unsure:

Have you tried this command in CMD with the folder you want to hide

for eg.

I want to hide Folder "XYZ" in  Drive D

or hide a file "XYZ.mp4"

type  CMD :

D: 
attrib +h +s XYZ 

attrib +h +s XYZ.mp4

 

 

 

Commands:

"attrib -h -s *.* "      (for showing /unhiding )

"attrib +h +s *.* " (for hiding )

Dude, again you are telling me to do the same thing which I think its most basic thing done by 99% of desktop users to hide their files. Attrib command = File Properties-Hidden option....webOS does not work like Windows operating system, it is based on Linux. And apparently nothing is hidden from Linux. Changing file name by prefixing dot does not even seem to work which would have worked otherwise in desktop linux.

      Hi,
      I've recently bought a 65QNED913PA TV (currently with latest official software) and I connected my Bluetooth headset to it - Jabra Elite 85t. Whenever I try to use pause button on my headset (while watching YouTube, Netflix, Disney,...) sound gets muted, but video does not pause. When I push the button again sound comes back and nothing else happens. Should my TV support pausing video from my headset or this does not work by default?
      Regards
      Maciej

      The built in Web Browser will not play Videos on SOME websites after updating to WebOS Version 04.40.25 and 04.40.70. The web sites otherwise work fine. Here is an example that won't play since the 04.40.25 update ... 
      link hidden, please login to view ... Please fix this LG ASAP, it's really annoying. PS. It has nothing to do with any Browser setting, I have checked all that.

      I tried everything:
      Resetting youtube
      Changing language and country
      Resetting tv
      Resetting tv by unpluging power for some minutes
      Uninstall and reinstall youtube 
      Connecting to internet wifi from phone hotspot instead of house wifi 
      I sent many feedbacks throught youtube app but still no fix until today..
