LG 49UB850t Stops playing movies from usb???

Question

Hi there,

 

Recently I am having problems playing movies ( 3D and normal bluray) from a 32GB usb drive...

 

The movie plays but randomly stops at certain points eg 20min in ect

 

Some movies with play 100% and other will stop..

 

I switched of the Tru Motion on the TV cuz it looks funny when I'm watching TV, can this be the issue???

 

Can it be because of the firmware update??

 

Any solutions???

 

Thanks!!!

It sounds much more likely to be errors in the file you are playing or the USB drive not being fast enough to transfer the data to the tv. Is it an HD file ie 1080p mkv or similar?

I am using a SanDisk 32GB USB3 flashdrive....And yes the files are all 1080p mkv... They all work on my other Sinotec TV...

 

Should I try to format the Flash and only put 1 movie at a time ect?Cuz the drive is pretty much full

      I have read the usb drive limit is 2tb. Has this changed ? Do 4tb or 8tb drives work with WebOS ? Thank you

      Just got off the phone to lg support. I was told the web browser shuts down when attempting to stream video ON PURPOSE! Furthermore, once you stream anything from the internet, the cache fills up, does not clear, and prevents the installed apps from functioning properly.  I was told that the OS is a web browser NOT a web streaming service and if they allow customers access to stream video they will be in breach of their contractual agreement to the companies who have apps on the TV. This clearly doesn't happen on tablets or phones, so their logic for creating a sub par product is utter bollocks. I specifically asked the salesman if I could stream video from the internet and was told absolutely yes.  (Of note: I need to watch presentations by medical professionals, NOT ILLEGAL CONTENT. Ted talks is an example)  When I pointed this out to Lg customer service they re-iterated that a web browser does not confer the ability to stream video. This is misleading the customer, and effectively censoring and filtering internet content.  This must stop!

      Hi
      I've got the LG OLED55B7V. I have connected a Chromecast to HDMI4 and USB power from USB port 3. Is there any way to not turn off usb power on this USB port, or any other USB port, when turning off the TV?
      Since webOS still doesn't have a Spotify app i need a Chromecast to listen to music, and so i would like to have the Chromecast powered from the TV but the TV turned off. I know i can use screenmode to only turn off the screen, but since i can't enable that with a single button from my remote control this isn't a good enough solution.

      Every time I use the scrollwheel on the amazing LG remote for the 55" OLED55B7V TV nothing happens, until I realize I am scrolling in the wrong direction.
      For everyone not accustomed with PCs, ie the whole mobile generation and all of us on the Apple platform, the so called "natural" scrolling aka "inverted scrolling" is what feels right. If I want the content on my screen to go up to reveal more content, I scroll the wheel up. On PCs and WebOS, you scroll the viewport, not the content, so you have to scroll down to make the content move up.
      If it would be up to me, the default should be natural scrolling, but at least give me an option to change the scrolling behaviour! For me, the current behaviour is just jarring each and every time I want to scroll!
      Moving a viewport is the old paradigm. Moving the content, as you do every day on your phones and tablets and PCs with touch screens, is how we interact now.
