Streaming to LG TV +

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


 


As you will soon realise, I'm new to 'smart' things like TV's & Phones, and just invested in both.


I'm disabled, and struggle with things at times.


 


My Son - lives with his mother - streams from his phone to his tv, and been explaining it to me.


My phone is a Moto G 4GLTE, but I can't seem to get it to stream to the LG.


Any ideas please ?


 


 


Today, I am finding that my PC will stream to the TV.


I have just opened SmartShare and seen some video's from the PC.


 


One of them is a film: it has foreign subtitles. Can I turn that off at the tv ?


If not, can I turn that off at the PC ?


 


There are also a couple of youtube shorties that I did. On the TV, they are in the same folder.


How do I swap video's around from folder to folder ? Obviously I want to keep movies in their own folder etc.


Are they 'stored' on the TV, or purely stream every time I turn it on ?


 


This TV is a replacement one. When I bought the original one, I also bought a new 1tb Samsung HDD for it & saved a couple of things.


When I plug it into the replacement machine, I find that I can no longer play them.


LG say this is their doing.


Can I change the extension or something, to get them to play on my new set ?


(I know I can change the extensions to run .rec files from the Toppy onto the PC/TV)


 


Also, the replacement came with no black box for accessories,,,, nor batteries,,,, nor usb stick.


Again, LG say this is their doing.


 


When researching for my new, & long awaited TV set, I'm sure I saw an advert, or some write-up stating that it comes with a usb recording stick, but can't find it now. Can anyone point me in the right direction of any such advertising please ?


 


Thanks all for reading the ramblings of an old geezer.

Hi,

I'm a newbie myself however, I think the solution is relatively simple.

Bare in mind that your smart TV is a conduit to stream files from your PC.

 

So, all changes should conducted at the PC end.

 

I'm using windows 7 with the smart share program located in the Icon box.

smart share should've been installed on your PC when you first installed the smart share software.

 

1: Make any changes you want to your movies, pictures and music files

2: Double click the smart share icon to pen the smart share program

3: Click My Shared Content on the left which will list any folder (you can select any dive you have and any folder)

    to add a folder click the green plus folder icon top left, to remove click the minus folder.

 If not already done so Add folders

Sorry incomplete

step 4: After any changes click the blue refresh folders icon top left and

everything should be updated with your TV screen matching you PC folders

 

Hope this help

 

Please acknowledge if it does thanks

      Is there an app to put Kodi on my LG Smart TV?

      Hi,
      LG webOS also needs Flash Player Support  to Stream video content from any website. So that if some apps are not available then  one can visit the website and stream contents directly from the webOS browser.
      Thanks

      Hi all,
      I have a question in using SmartShare on LG WebOS 2.0 (my LG TV is 43UF770T, a 2015 model).
      Recently I often use the TV to view pictures from files located in my NAS through DLNA capabilities in SmartShare app. I found out that when I view pictures with resolution smaller than 4K, then the pictures are shown in the center of the TV screen and cannot be shown full screen (automatic best-fit). This is quite annoying because when viewing older photos taken from old phones with 1920 x 1080 resolution for example, then the picture will look small because it is not shown full screen.
      For comparison, when viewing video files, the TV automatically resizes the images until best-fit full screen, i.e. video with smaller resolution than 4K still shown full screen. This is exactly what I want.
      Does anyone here know how to get full screen image shown for smaller pictures (auto resize upscale to best fit full screen), just as with video files in SmartShare?
       
      Many thanks in advance.

      I got a new C7 but no Direct TV Now App.  It been a whole year since the launch and is a major channel app  for Smart TV like Web OS to release.  Why does LG want to force their owners to use a third party streaming box like Apple TV, Amazon Fire or Roku?  "LG should go big or go home!" meaning LG's Web OS should have all the main apps in their inventory and not have their customers to go outside LG to buy another third party streaming device in order to be complete their viewing interests.
