Got the latest WebOS 3.0 update for my 2015 LG Smart 4K TV. Previously, I could go to a local TV channel and watch the morning news' "live stream" very successfully. Since the update, whenever the live stream goes to commercial (the channel displays a screen message stating that there is a commercial break), the streaming does not resume when the break has completed ...and clicking play arrow does nothing. I've got to refresh the page and click the "watch live stream" button again, then the play arrow to get it to resume, however when there is another commercial break, the live stream still does not resume after that break. Worked fine with the older version of WebOS 2.0.
can webOS 3.0 play a stream from network URL?
would typing rtmp://ipaddress/stream in the URL bar of webOS work as a player?
i've setup a streaming software on a computer and viewed the output with VLC media player and I'm wondering if LG webOS can display the same output
EDIT: if webOS 3.0 can't play the livestream, are they any alternatives?
NEWBIE NEVER POSTED BEFORE: I want to connect any compatible LG wireless headset to my LG webOS TV UF6450, my is on me to get this done because my wife likes to fall asleep earlier than me and I know this would work if my TV had the Wireless Sound Sync feature. I have emailed LG support and the chat service, neither one has attempted to respond and it has been over a week since I've written them. The following is what I keep sending LG over and over:
I’m trying to connect any set of LG wireless headphones to my LG TV webos 55UF6450 Ultra 4K with the weboS 3.10.80 software and my Smart LG TV came in the box with the weboS 2.1 software. However, every forum or LG help center related to the weboS 2.0-3.22 Behive-Big Horn edition software (same as my LG TV) illustrates a Wireless Sound Sync feature in the Sound Out function, but I don’t have the Wireless Sound Sync feature, which according to the LG site I should have it on my TV. I have exhausted every search for an entire 3 days straight to no avail. I called the tech support last night and the lady I spoke with said “NO old or new LG SMART TV would be compatible with any LG Wireless Headphones. I told her I read on the LG site that the HBS-700, HBS-730 and HBS-800 would work with my TV, only if I had the Wireless Sound Sync feature.
Hope I explained right and didn't put too much in the post.
As you will soon realise, I'm new to 'smart' things like TV's & Phones, and just invested in both.
I'm disabled, and struggle with things at times.
My Son - lives with his mother - streams from his phone to his tv, and been explaining it to me.
My phone is a Moto G 4GLTE, but I can't seem to get it to stream to the LG.
Any ideas please ?
Today, I am finding that my PC will stream to the TV.
I have just opened SmartShare and seen some video's from the PC.
One of them is a film: it has foreign subtitles. Can I turn that off at the tv ?
If not, can I turn that off at the PC ?
There are also a couple of youtube shorties that I did. On the TV, they are in the same folder.
How do I swap video's around from folder to folder ? Obviously I want to keep movies in their own folder etc.
Are they 'stored' on the TV, or purely stream every time I turn it on ?
This TV is a replacement one. When I bought the original one, I also bought a new 1tb Samsung HDD for it & saved a couple of things.
When I plug it into the replacement machine, I find that I can no longer play them.
LG say this is their doing.
Can I change the extension or something, to get them to play on my new set ?
(I know I can change the extensions to run .rec files from the Toppy onto the PC/TV)
Also, the replacement came with no black box for accessories,,,, nor batteries,,,, nor usb stick.
Again, LG say this is their doing.
When researching for my new, & long awaited TV set, I'm sure I saw an advert, or some write-up stating that it comes with a usb recording stick, but can't find it now. Can anyone point me in the right direction of any such advertising please ?
Thanks all for reading the ramblings of an old geezer.
