Hi,

if i could understand your problem is about 4K content ? isn't ?

I have the same TV and actually webOS has support for 4K contents

if they are covered by specs described in the help menu provided by the TV. 

 

Check this specs with your 4K contents to see if they are right.

 

Your 4K contents must be on the HDD plugged to USB 3.0 (that TV has one),

and the resolution supported is 3840 x 2160 , both H264 and H265.

Some 4K contents available on YouTube are 4096 x 2XXX ..and are no supported by this TV,

watching 4k contents using YouTube app is not the same becouse the app

arrange resolution and datarate to get working on the TV.

 

Some issues i faced with 4k content muxed in MP4, try remux MP4 to MKV seems to be better supported by webOS.

It's not normal 4K files likes a .mp4 or .avi

But it's a special file for LG 4K TV Only it's .mkv files

When i open it on PC it will have 1 folder for 1 song and in folder the file is separate between video.mkv and audio.mkv .

But when i connected on TV it will combine to 1 files only.

 

This is my LG 4K bundle package

 

11148443_880560462002496_765853654756866

 

This picture is sample when i connect HDD on PC.Files will be like this.(I copied form HDD)

 

10452977_880017568723452_287451641075606

 

This is when i connect on tv it will combine to 1 files not a folder.

 

11119343_881471421911400_1201676588_n.jp

 

And it showing this message when i try to play the file it will show error message box "Not Supported Content" i don't know why and am sure my TV can play this HDD

because LG told it available for UB850T (2014 TV)

Sorry for my misunderstanding, i thought was about standard 4k containers like mp4 or MKV.

 

Looking to pictures i see you have 1 file for audio track "audio.mkv" (or MKA) and 1 track for video "video.mkv" +

subtitles and thumbnail image.

I see you tried to play the content via SmartShare, isn't ? and seems to be chapters of the same video ..may be tagged in the video track file.

 

I suggest you to mux the video track with the audio track to a new MKV file, with tools like toolnix, and try to play

the new MKV file in USB 3.0 plugged HDD.

 

Could you also paste here the content of the text file, i see on the left in the picture, with the same name of the folder please?

 

Hope to help.

Stefano

I think the register file in HDD is broken because LG give me another one and it can watch normally.

Thank You for your help. ^^

      👀 🤓Remember those frustrating times when you were watching a video or a movie online and all of the sudden you experienced a loss of quality? Now it can be possible to stream high-quality videos in congested network environments in a faster and virtuous way. Conceived to boost video streaming, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), or H.265, is a video compression standard designed to substantially improve coding efficiency when compared to its precedent, the Advanced Video Coding (AVC), or H.264. With an increasing growth of video streaming on the Internet over popular websites such as Netflix and YouTube, and with 4K cameras gaining new ground in the market, a considerable amount of storage and bandwidth is required. HEVC promises a 50% storage reduction as its algorithm uses efficient coding by encoding video at the lowest possible bit rate while maintaining a high image quality level. !!! 😃😃😃

      I am using LG 43UH650T and updated to the latest software. When I connect my WD HDD having 2 partitions to the TV, it is detecting only one partition and not able to access the other partition. I was using Samsung Series 5 LCD TV from 2010 onwards and in that TV there is an an option to change device which was easy to switch the partitions. Please advice me to solve this in LG TV.

      When browsing titles on my external HDD, the font is white and rather small. The result is very hard to read. Is there any way to change this to perhaps a black font?

      Youtube runs only in 2560 x 1440. No way to change the resolution to 4k. 
       
      Just bought LG 50UH5500 4K with WebOS 3.0 and am trying to figure out how to run youtube in 4k with in built app.
       
      Has anyone have resolution problem using YouTube on 4k TV? I checked 'more info" and it shows me current resolution of YouTube, which is 2560 x 1440 instead of 4k and there is no option to change the resolution.
       
      I have to use web browser and only then i can see it in 4K. However, the default is set to 1080 on web browser, so have to manually change it to 4k evey time i use youtube on web browser.
       
      Wish there was an easy way to set defaults and the YouTube app with an option to change the resolution. I do have internet speed of 25 Mbps, which i suppose is capable of 4k.
