4k Youtube videos (WebOS 1 vs WebOS 2)

Question

My sister has purchased a new LG 4k tv that runs WebOS 2.0. When playing a 4k youtube video, it actually plays in 4k (the 4k badge shows up when its playing in 4k).

 

I'm on an older 4k tv running webOS 1. I can't get it to play 4k videos. It may be that i need to update my tv's firmware to a later version of webOS 1.

 

Has anyone on WebOS 1 been able to stream 4k videos in 4k on their tv?

 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

2015 models support VP9-video codec that YouTube started using this year for 4k videos. Apparently Lg isn't bringing support for that to 2014 models, atleast I haven't heard anything about that.

      Hi there, I've recently bought a TV 49sj810v, and I can't change a playback speed for youtube videos via the Youtube app and the browser as well, how come?  Why changing the playback speed is possible for my more older samsung tv with the only 1 core processor?

      Hi
      I have a LG Smart TV LJ550V 
      After updating the webos to 04.70.30 in the night I watched some YouTube videos and turned off the TV, in the next day I tried to open the YouTube app and the TV said that the YouTube app isn't supported and disappeared and I cant find it on LG store.
      Can anyone help me please

      Short answer: Something on my network is causing the crashes.
      I had an extra router, so I put it between my network and the TV.  
      Netflix no longer crashes, and other apps no longer give me the dreaded, "This app will now restart to free up more memory" error.
       
      Longer answer: Netflix would regularly crash out to Live TV after 20-40 minutes of play. I've been on LG support with this for months. They've replaced the main board twice, and took it off-site where the problem could not be replicated.
      I reset the TV and connected it to my smart phone data plan (luckily just upgraded to 10 GB). No crashes. Put the TV back on my network, crashed after half an hour.
      I took the network cable out of the TV and plugged it into a spare WiFi router. This creates a small network of only one device (the TV). I no longer get crashes. 
      Unfortunately, this kills local network features like DLNA/Plex streaming and wireless display mirroring, but all Internet apps like Netflix and YouTube work flawlessly.
      I plan to narrow down which device(s) on my network is the cause of the crashes, but after 10 months of fighting this I'm just going to enjoy some 4K streaming for a while. If I learn anything new, I'll post it here.

      I have a 49UJ634V television. When I install the YouTube app from the content store the app starts to reboot with the pop-up “out of memory app will restart”  but this is then with everything . Live-tv, guide, etc  
      this is a app problem beacause when I delete the app everything else works fine again.
