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,
      My TV is driving me nuts!
       
      I keep getting reminders for programs starting for programs I don’t watch or have never watched and 2. The tv even switches on for scheduled programs that I haven’t set.. actually I have only ever set one program reminder and that has now been deleted.
       
      I can’t see any programs in the reminder page or anywhere in the tv programmer?
       
      Short of resetting the tv I don’t know what else to try? And I don’t really want to do that until I know how the tv ended up like this? Plus I don’t want to have to reload and sign in to all my apps 😬

      Recently bought 2021 model OLED 55” A1 with WebOS 6(I think). When watching anything on all4 ( I know I’m lucky that I could get all4 after reading about 2020 models), but there seems to be an issue that the TV doesn’t seem to realise that there is content playing and so the screensaver comes on every 2 minutes.  
      Anyone else got this issue and more important how to fix it?

      I hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.

      I am recording videos to 
      link hidden, please login to view NAS. During the recording I like to watch the video (still recording).  The Photo and Video App on webOS does not show the file unless the recording has terminated. Is there a possibility to watch videos in webOS while it get recorded? Joseph

      Am using LG OLED TV 55BX UAE version in India but can't install Disney Hotstar App in my TV and India is not mentioned in Broadcast and Location option which is not at all fair. Please sort this out...  I am a LG electronics user ( Air conditioner, Refrigerator, Washing machine ETC ) and recommending others also this Brand but this kind of issues are leading to discourage ..
