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.

      Please Help. I have LG qned tv with webOS 23
      1) What I did: with svc remote -> in start -> 0413 and all, area option was changed.
      I was trying many numbers to find the code for KR (which didn't work).
      2) What I wanted : change area option from CA -> KR (widely known area codes do not work)
      Original code: CAD 22411
       
      3) Problem: Once I put a number between 19461 ~ 19489, Language&Country is set to EU and would not change the country with the other numbers.
      Area option: 19461 ~ 19489 Continent index: 5 ~ 33 Language & Country: EU  
      Now I put 22411 to change it back to original region, but the country would not change from EU to CA, the area option is back to 19461.
      If anyone is trying the area option numbers, don't put any number between them.
      If any one knows how to resolve, please help me to escape from EU.. I am so desperate.

      The webOS community may be a bit smaller these days but it’s no less devoted to the platform. WebOS Ports is a small team of developers. As you can imagine, it is a few people to maintain a full OS that consists of thousands of components. Things are starting to come together for LuneOS, with the current major rebase and stable release. But we still need your help.
      As nice as it is to have some additional folk contributing, developing, and working on issues, we still need more developers to get involved to make this community project really take off.
      “Our focus is core functionality”
      We cannot stress enough that we are building an OS focused on core app integration that is simple, beautiful, and user-centric. Right now, function comes first. If we had a penny for every developer that knew some web code and could make a beautiful static mock-up of an app that didn’t do a thing in the backend and then said “I did my part, it’s up to you to make it work”…well, we’d have a lot of pennies.
      Developer requirements
      Once core app integration happens we will need HTML/CSS smart people. But to be an asset to the team, you need to have a good grasp on any or all of these technologies:
      Javascript C node.js C++ QML Qt Yocto Graphics design Are you decent at some of these, but might need help from time to time? That’s fine!  We’re a community, remember?  Hit up the
      link hidden, please login to view and/or channel and ask! Get the bugs out!
      We have several applications already available but many are placeholders or have basic functionality. Some of the apps are almost fully functional like Settings. But even Settings has bugs and can use refinement.  OK there are bugs everywhere! (If only it were as easy as a can of Raid to fix them)!  We’ve received lots of questions about how to get plugged into the project quickly.  Easy! Head over to our  to see current issues. Find an area where you think you can help and then find us on or (see below) to talk about it.
      Some examples of areas that need bug fixing are:
      Email: Some minor bug fixes Settings: Add Settings when needed Phone: Further polishing Calendar: Google C+Dav integration needs updating to adopt for Google’s changes Browser: Rework UI to be more webOS/LuneOS like And more. Core Apps/Features/Backend magic
      The Open webOS project released several core applications that were Enyo1 based.  These apps are in LuneOS
      Messaging: Needs a rework or rewrite to give proper functionality similar to legacy webOS PDF needs converting to QML. LuneOS also needs a media player app (maybe reuse/rework the webOS OSE app for this?). The C+Dav connector is there, but it needs updating for various changes by Google. It also needs testing for other providers. Additional IM connectors would be good to implement (Telegram, Signal) etc, there are existing plugins exist for Pidgin/libpurple that can be used. Looks aren’t everything
      As you can see, to really make stuff work first, most of what we need is in the backend.  It’s the old battle between form and function. Which comes first?  Designers will argue form!  But Ports is focused on the core functionality that has to work first and look pretty later. It’s a hard pill to swallow and we get that, but when building an OS, it’s the most important thing. If it looks pretty but doesn’t work, the project loses potential users. If it works but doesn’t look pretty it will at least show promise and that encourages positive feedback. And with a community led project, if you don’t have good feedback you’ve already lost.
      Additional help wanted
      Ports is looking to expand our public relations presence. If you are located outside of the United States or more specifically speak a different language than English and would like to help us advertise and direct interested people toward LuneOS and WebOS Ports, please let us know.
      We are also looking for a WordPress “expert” for a new site we’ll be setting up soon. Are you good at making tutorials?
      We have several “How to install LuneOS guides” on the wiki. If you’d like to make friendly guides, that’d be great!
      And finally, we need a “wiki-meister”. Someone that really knows the ins and outs of running a mediawiki!
      Get involved
      Everyone can help in some way. We need testers and bug reports! Sign up on the , contact us to let us know that you signed up and what your username is, and we’ll upgrade your account so you can post issues.
      Developers please join us on and/or drop by the IRC channel

      New user to the forum!  
      My TV is an LG OLED 65B6P, which was working fine until a few days ago, when the magic remote pointer and OK button stopped working (was getting message that Bluetooth needed to be initialized).  After making the mistake of calling product support, they had me do a factory reset, but that didn't fix the issue, and only made it worse, as now I can't proceed from the "Start Up" menu as I can't click the OK button.  I'm dead in the water, and have even tried this with 2 different magic remotes!  I've tried the pairing and unpairing suggested on numerous support sites, and can't get anywhere with this.  Can't even find an LG service center in the Boston area.
      I also have a Harmony Ultimate remote, but that likely won't help here, as I can't get the "OK" button assigned in the TV's current state.
      Any help is appreciated!

      I recently bought a LG TV with WebOS version 8.1 and have a frustrating issue.
      I have a usb disk with all my family photos & videos archive in it. 
      We love to browse through the pictures and videos on big screen.
      But current LG TV media player displays either pictures or videos. I want to see them in the order they were captured.
      It would be great to enable this feature when "Photos & Videos" filter is selected.
