Please Help - Hiding Videos for TV

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

This is linux you must name it to start with dot

Hidden must be .hidden

Dude it made matter worse!! Not only it still shows in SmartShare Videos of TV all files are now on the top of the list after prefixing with them dot. Any more suggestion please!!

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.

    • Question: Computer Content

      Last Friday the 26th of October I was able to play all of the shared files (mp4, avi, divx, mkv, almost anything) on several of my computers on my network on my LG OLED 65C7P and had been doing so for the past 10 months. Saturday morning Nothing would play. I can navigate to the files on the computer with the TV but everything returns the message "This file cannot be recognized. Do you want to play the next file." The next file after waiting several minutes returns the same message. I then tried another computer on the network with the same results. I was wondering if the TV had downloaded an update that screwed this up. The software version is 04.71.00 and the WebOS TV Version is 3.71-57127 (dreadlocks2-drto). The TV plays my cable box and input from my amp fine. I stream almost everything from my compter and I will be lost without this function.

    • Question: No sound on live radio but good on youtube videos

      C55ln5750 smart tv has ggod sound on youtube videos but zero sound on live radio via radio stafion direct, iheart, streems etc. . I also get out of memory while searching but I have no open apps. lG Canada “Support????” Claims there is not enough memory on-board to handle streaming radio broadcasts so how do they explain my ability to run YouTube videos with music and no drop in signal of video or audio? My iPad mini can broadvast the target station’s live programming with its limited memory and the tv can play movies with sound so what’s the problem with radio broadcasts?   Not Impressed st all!

    • Question: Photos and Videos app works unintuitively?

      I loaded the Photos & Videos app and was pleased to see a Filter that allowed it to show both Photos AND Videos.  So I applied that Filter (which was probably the default anyway).  I see thumbnails of Photos AND Videos.  So then I clicked on the first thumbnail, which happened to be a video.  When that video finished playing, it went to the next video and so on through all the videos.  I expected it to go to the next Photo OR Video.  In other words I expected it to step through and play the thumbnails as they were displayed by the filter. I don't suppose the LG webOS programmers visit this forum, but if they do, can this feature be changed?  If I just wanted to watch videos, I would have changed the filter to just videos.  Instead it looks like it launches the video player and then goes to the next video.
