3D 4K video

Question

Hi everyone... I recently got an LG 55UB850V which I'm really enjoying. I'm under the impression that as it's a 4K TV it's capable of 3D pictures in full HD like you get with an active 3D TV and have tried to encode a couple of my blu-rays as Full HD side-by-side h264 for streaming over DLNA. I'm not having much luck, though, as it doesn't seem to like my 3840x1080 MP4 files. I've searched around and can't find any answers anywhere but wondered if anyone knew what 3D encoding would work to get the full HD experience from the 3D without using a blu-ray source.

Hi Irwell,

i got 3D Full HD working on SmartShare in every container like MP4, MKV and MTS but not

over DLNA, i read in the specs that by design 4k is not available over DLNA. I have external HDD

connected to USB 3.0 port.

 

Anyway i got it working after many try between compatibility and image quality.

I can say that SmartShare is unable to play SBS 3840 x 1080 becouse 

the WIDTH (3840) is initial step to determinate if the resolution is 4K. And if it is

2160 height is expetced. I really don't know why. I tried Many othere video with

mixed resolution more close to 4k like 3840 x 2000 and fail to play.

 

So to get Full HD SBS i upscaled 3840x1080 to 3840x2160 in SBS to get 4K full resolution,

and with passive 3D i got full resolution per eye.

 

I success in some case to put two videos OU (Top Bottom) instead SBS

to get 1920x2160 instead 3840x1080 but nevere tried over DLNA.

 

Hope to be in help,

Stefano

I run Serviio DLNA on my PC and my UB8500 can stream 3D just fine.  The 3D files I have are mkv SBS format.

 

P.S. I only have 1080p files.  I don't have any UHD to try it yet.

Hi Stefano,

 

I am very interested in your result. I am trying to achieve the same thing than you I think: Play full resolution (full hd) 3D files on my Lg 4k tv. And from my NAS as a bonus!

So you said that 4k isn't supported at all by DLNA? Good to know. I thought that DLNA was just "serving" the file... Because yes I have some 4k videos that play well from a USB connected HD but not from my NAS. It is sad that WebOs cannot connect to a SMB shared folder.

 

As for the 3D. What is your process? What software(s) are you using?

Is your source a bluray 3D?

 

In my research on playing full resolution 3d, I also found some discussion about "3D Frame Sequential" format (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=170863). The sample clip posted there play perfectly on my tv. Best of all, the tv detect that it is 3D content and switch automatically!

But this forum is really really technical and I didn't understand yet how to create that kind of mp4 from a bluray. I also read somewhere else that using 3D Frame Sequential format is bad because the video encoding is trying to compress between the right and left eye images and that cause a lots of compression artifacts.

If only WebOs could be able to play MVC MKV files...

I've live in italy.

i've buy a LG49Uf7767 , and i've a NAS Sinology.

 

I don't see my 4k video files streaming over DLNA.

 

It is a work-aorund ?

 

Hi Masssimiliano,

there are no workaround on WebOS 2.0, maybe on V3.0

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Ciao Massimiliano,

anche io sono italiano, purtroppo sembra che non sia fattibile

fare stream 4K da DLNA su WebOS 2.0, così dicono le specifiche tecniche.

Forse nella versione 3.0 ci sono più focus sul 4k.

You are not able to stream 4K media, and in case of 1080p - with file sizes larger than 1GB - you probably won't be able to rewind/fast-forward (at least I can't). WebOS is soooo good - isn't it, isn't it?

I should have gone with some other brand, offering great picture quality (LG LED's are apparently far from this) and stupid OS, and then add some good streaming media player...

Hi,

by design WebOS is unable to process 4k resolution via NAS / DLNA, this is a limitation of SmartShare.

About to play full resolution 1920 x 1080 per eye in SBS i got it working with BDtoAVCHD (http://www.connecta2000.com/BDtoAVCHD/?lang=en)

Is free, works and can be scriptable with avisynth to get MKV SBS up to 4k resolution and you can also encode video with x265 !

SmartShare is able di recognise this SBS MKV 3D automatically and play immediatly with 3D on !

How and using which software did you prepare 1920x2160 OU from 3D Bluray iso?

    • Question: How can I change the screensaver pictures ???

      Hi, just bought a new LG OLED and pretty fast noticed that I`ve now chance to change the wallpapers ?!?
      Really pretty strange - even the smallest smartphone offers such a feature. The TV has enough USB interfaces - why is it not able to customize this by an own set of pictures ?
      Can`t be that big rocket science to implement this , especially for such an expensive device this should be a standard feature !!!

      Or did I  miss something in the settings of the TV ?

    • Startup LG TV full screen in WebOS for Digital Signage

      I am using a LG 65-inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED Smart TV with WebOS 3.0 (65UH6030) as a digital display.   Every day I have to manually turn on the TV, go to the WebOS app, open a URL (http://www.tapnarts.com/signage) and then expand WebOS into full screen and move the cursor over to the top right hand of the screen to try and hide it.   Is there a way in which I could schedule the TV to automatically turn on everyday and open WebOS in full screen mode opening a URL (http://www.tapnarts.com/signage) and hiding the cursor? I would also like it to turn off at a specific time so it is not running 24/7.

    • Question: Streamed picture not shown full screen (best fit)

      Hi all, I have a question in using SmartShare on LG WebOS 2.0 (my LG TV is 43UF770T, a 2015 model). Recently I often use the TV to view pictures from files located in my NAS through DLNA capabilities in SmartShare app. I found out that when I view pictures with resolution smaller than 4K, then the pictures are shown in the center of the TV screen and cannot be shown full screen (automatic best-fit). This is quite annoying because when viewing older photos taken from old phones with 1920 x 1080 resolution for example, then the picture will look small because it is not shown full screen. For comparison, when viewing video files, the TV automatically resizes the images until best-fit full screen, i.e. video with smaller resolution than 4K still shown full screen. This is exactly what I want. Does anyone here know how to get full screen image shown for smaller pictures (auto resize upscale to best fit full screen), just as with video files in SmartShare?   Many thanks in advance.

    • [pivotCE]Guide: Cleaning out the /var partition when full

      Just like an older car, with any webOS device these days, you have to perform some maintenance to keep it running smoothly. And one of those maintenance items you have to do on your webOS device is cleaning out the “var” (variable data) partition. If your webOS device has any of the following symptoms, the trouble could be that your “var” partition is full, or nearly full: Unable to download files, or play streaming media. Can’t install or update webOS apps. Trouble downloading new e-mails. Generally sluggish, or very slow to respond to gestures.
      The “var” partition is an area of the disk used behind-the-scenes by the the webOS operating system. You don’t really notice it or interact with it on a day-to-day basis. This is a standard directory location on almost all Unix and Linux-based operating systems, which webOS of course, is. What usually goes here are files used internally by webOS during the course of its operation, such as log files, temporary and not-so-temporary database files, and other files that webOS needs to just keep track of what it’s doing from minute-to-minute. Now as you could guess, things like operating system log files could just get bigger and bigger over time, and without any user intervention, they could eventually take up the disk on a regular PC, or flash storage partition on a mobile device. There are already utilities built-in to webOS that automatically run once in a while to delete old log files to keep this from happening. Normally, on more recent desktop Linux operating systems, the var partition is just a part of the root partition, and can usually take up the whole hard drive. On our webOS devices, most (but not all) of our available storage is taken up by our media partition. When you have a TouchPad with 16GB of storage, only about 15GB is available for your own use, to store music, videos, photos, documents, and other files. The other 1GB or less is so that webOS itself can have some filespace for its own needs. Out of that less-than-1GB, only 62MB (megabytes) is set aside for the var partition. Yeah, that’s not a lot, but it’s just a consequence of trying to give as much storage is feasible to you for your own files on your webOS device. So besides the log files that webOS automatically trims once in a while there are other directories and files that webOS does not keep in check, that can grow over time and fill up the var partition. Over the years, different people have discovered that it is safe to remove files from the following directories: 1. Browser cache and cookies
      Your web browser has to save files somewhere, and you guessed it – they go in the var partition. 2. /var/luna/data/downloadhistory.db
      This file is just a listing of all of the different files that have been downloaded through your browser. On the TouchPad, you can clear this list using the browser. But on phones, you don’t have that option to clear this from the browser. 3. /var/minicores
      Files that go in here are stack traces of applications that have crashed. These are the kind of files that would have been useful to the folks developing webOS. 4. /var/context/pending
      This directory would contain files that would get uploaded to Palm periodically, to help them spot operating system errors on devices already released. The files also controversially contain things like location data. 5. /var/palm/data/localstorage – http*.localstorage
      Some websites use javascript features that create a little database on the users computer. Those database files go in this directory on webOS. Now, if your webOS device is in a state where you cannot even launch a new app because the var partition is full, you will have to use novaterm or a similar utility to access the command line of your webOS device, and delete files from the var partition manually. But if you have the Internalz file management app, and you can start it successfully, you can use that to navigate to each of these locations and take the following steps. 1. For browser cache and cookie files, open your webOS browser app, and access the Preferences from the menu. Press the buttons to Clear History, Clear Cookies and Clear Cache. Please note that clearing cookies will erase any passwords you may have saved for websites you might have to login to from the browser, such as Facebook or the webOSNation forums. You’ll just have to re-enter and re-save your login info the next time you visit those sites. 2. For /var/luna/data/downloadhistory.db, just navigate to this directory in Internalz and delete it there. The webOS browser will re-create it for you next time you start the browser. Even if this file is 1MB or so, remember that is 1MB out of 62MB total, so it will definitely help. 3. For /var/minicores, navigate to this directory in Internalz, and delete any and all files found there. You may not find any files here. If you don’t, no problem. 4. For /var/context/pending, navigate to this directory in Internalz, and delete any and all files found there. You may not find any files here. If you don’t, no problem. 5. For /var/palm/data/localstorage, you don’t want to delete all files here – only consider ones that start with “http”. Even those, maybe don’t delete files of websites that you visit a lot, or you may lose features saved by the website on your webOS device. There may be A LOT of files here, so here is a trick in Internalz: tap the “Size” column so that the largest files appear at the top. The display will go from this: …to this: Now you can easily delete the first few files beginning with “http” that will make the biggest impact in freeing up space for you. Keep deleting these files until you can’t stand it any more. Now that you have freed up that precious space in your var partition, there is one final thing you need to do, if you haven’t already done it: If you had a ton of files in /var/context/pending, this means you probably haven’t installed the “EOM Overlord Monitor” from Preware. This is a patch/application that will prevent the scripts that fill up this directory from running. These scripts or background apps also try to send these files to Palm servers that no longer exist, so it makes sense to turn off these features on your device. Just install the app from Preware, and it will care of turning those things off. With your routine maintenance complete, your classic model is ready for the road again! Discussion thread here.
