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.

      How can I add 4K pics to the media file so I can play a loop of 4K pictures?

      Hello,
      I am using WebOS3.5 on my LG 49 SJV800V. When I log into my YouTube account on my TV via my smartphone app, I login as the wrong user from my Google account. 
      In the smartphone app the right user is shown, but when I am signed in on the TV app, the Google User is signed in, instead of the one I am using for YouTube. For people who do not know what I am talking about - you can have different Users in one Google account. A while ago Google decided to merge the Google account with your Youtube account. That is why different users exist. 
      Is there a way to change to the correct user?
      Thanks,
      Maple Man

      Hello,
      last Saturday Youtube app stopped working. Screenshot attached.
      App states that "This page isn't available. Sorry about that. Try searching for something else".
      App version 1.0.40.
      Tried to reinstall it, does not help.

      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?
