👀 🤓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?
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?
