Streaming to LG TV +

3 posts in this topic

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

      👀 🤓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. !!! 😃😃😃

      Got the latest WebOS 3.0 update for my 2015 LG Smart 4K TV.   Previously, I could go to a local TV channel and watch the morning news' "live stream" very successfully.   Since the update, whenever the live stream goes to commercial (the channel displays a screen message stating that there is a commercial break), the streaming does not resume when the break has completed ...and clicking play arrow does nothing.   I've got to refresh the page and click the "watch live stream" button again, then the play arrow to get it to resume, however when there is another commercial break, the live stream still does not resume after that break.   Worked fine with the older version of WebOS 2.0.

      can webOS 3.0 play a stream from network URL?
       
      would typing rtmp://ipaddress/stream in the URL bar of webOS work as a player?
       
      i've setup a streaming software on a computer and viewed the output with VLC media player and I'm wondering if LG webOS can display the same output
       
      EDIT: if webOS 3.0 can't play the livestream, are they any alternatives?

      Hello,
                I am new to this and would like a little help. I just bought my first telly (LG 49UB8500-ND). I love everything about this telly, I am only hoping to love it more.
       
      My family is all Apple computers and iOS deices. However, my hard drives i reformatted to windows so that i can plug them into the telly (one 2TB and one 5TB). I have an apple base station extreme and the telly connects to it (as does any and all devices). I also have one of the hard drives plugged into it. I would like the telly to see the hard drive so that i can play movies that way instead of having to plug the hard drive in every time i want to play a movie or tv show.
       
      is it possible?
