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. ^^

      Hey guys.
      TL;DR How do I save screen captures to an external HDD?
       
      I am new here. I recently bought an LG 43UJ6307, webOS 3.5. More than happy with it, except for the fact that there is literally nowhere to find accurate information. The TV has the screen capture feature and automatically saves the capture in the internal storage.
      I e-mailed LG to ask how to copy it from the internal storage to the external storage and they said it is not possible. Although, they said I can choose where I save the screen captures (on an external support or internal storage). My question is: How do I do this? How do I choose to save the screen captures to my external HDD of flash drive? Thanks very much.

      Few days ago I received my new 55EG920V 4k OLED TV 2015 model with passive 3D and after a brief testing it turned out that 4k over DLNA isn't supported in WebOS2.0 - LG customer support already confirmed that. Of course, this limitation isn’t explicitly stated anywhere, neither in the the owner’s manual nor on the LG official website. The same MKV HEVC file would play well enough through USB, but not DLNA. So for the unlucky WebOS2.0 4k TV owners, the only way of playing 4k content from the home network is through USB. This is mind blowing, in the high speed internet connections and gigabyte ethernet era, LG force its own customers to move USB sticks between computer and TV.
      Leaving out important information through omission means misleading commercial practices: http://europa.eu/youreurope/citizens/consumers/unfair-treatment/unfair-commercial-practices/index_en.htm.
      Are LG or WebOS developers willing to fix this issue through a future firmware update?
       
      PS. the passive 3D is spectacular, this is the main reason I bought this somehow outdated 4k TV
      PS2. could someone with a WebOS3.0 or 3.5 TV confirm that 4k over DLNA is supported with this newer OS versions?

      Wonder if anyone might be able to suggest a suitable USB Hard Disk Drive for my 
        LG 43UJ630V 43 inch 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart LED TV (2017 Model) I did ask LG support about why these TV's cannot record properly to USB Flash Drives and they just said it doesn't work - not what they advertise is it?
      They informed me the recording will work with USB Hard Drive but did not suggest any suitable models which given the TV's seot em to be using USB 2.0 and all available USB HDD now are at least USB 3.0 I would appreciate informed suggestions as to compatible models. The two I suggested to LG support were these which they state are not compatible.
      - Toshiba Canvio Basics 1TB Portable External Hard Drive 2.5 Inch USB 3.0, HDTB310EK3AA
      - Seagate Expansion 1 TB USB 3.0 Portable 2.5 inch So which models are compatible and why are LG using slow, years out of date, USB 2.0 in 2017anyway?

      👀 🤓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. !!! 😃😃😃
