I wanted to know if native WebOS media player on LG tvs, support streaming of movies with EXTERNAL subtitles present in folder where the movie is - via DLNA
I purchased Sony XG95 recently, but it seems that native player does not support DLNA external subtitles - only embedded ones. This is joke as even my old samsung from 2015 could deal with it.
Is anyone perhaps streaming movies via NAS using DLNA server (like Universal media Server, TwonkyServer, Servioo) and can confirm whether external subtitles are supported or not?
I'm considering switching to LG C9 oled if it has support for these DLNA subtitles.
OK. I have a 2018 LG Smart TV model OLED65C8PUA. The TV 'magically' recognizes and (badly) displays/ plays the 2gb of photos, videos and audio residing on my Western Digital 4TB My Passport external hard drive I have. The problem is the TV is the ONLY device that WILL RECONIZE THE DRV! 8 diffirent computers running from Vista to Win 10 have given me 'DRV (x) is not accessable'. At one time the drv was password protected and it worked fine. The exact password was lost so I tried a number of variations and was able to finally unlock the drv and remove the password using WD Utilities. It worked for a bit and I was able to copy out a few files using a Surface Pro/ Windows 10 but it stopped and now with that Surface Pro and the other windows machines I get `D is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect'. I even put it on a Samsung smart TV - none will read the drv, ONLY THE LG! The LG also displays the DRV'S volume label and content filenames as well.
I want to copy these files before the drive fails as the catch here is the LG seems to produce one or two "unrecognized files' every time I use it and some of these videos are one-of family heirlooms! I want to avoid another $300 data recovery bill if possible. And if the LG can read it one would think there is a way forward.
Any suggestions will be most appreciated!
Do you know the way to get into the TV system files in internal memory? I got blocked to watch some DRM content from the TV and I want to reinstall them again but LG already closed a server for register the content, so I need to get the license file and reinstall it again. It worked by cache from the server and kept on internal memory in 'file:///mnt/lg/flash/data/[content's name]/icpLicense.dat' and the DRM system was made by DivX I found this code in the file, if you want the file you can tell me, Thank you.

I am havingl trouble with importing video file to internal storage of my company's LG TV. I have Store Mode enabled and when I open Store Mode settings, there is option "Copy video file from USB" but it's greyed out and I can't click on it. The TV can see USB drive and I can play the video file. Any ideas what could be the problem here? Thanks in advance.
So, it's the year 2018 and all the documentation I have found online says that LG TV's USB storage are limited to a max capacity of 2TB... nowadays that's considered rather small in terms of PVR and play backing of HDR 10bit content.
I've ordered a the LG 49sj800v which is due to be delivered in the next couple of weeks so I am in the process of preparing the hard drive ready for it, which I have a WD Red 6TB however after reading it seems to be limited to 2TB?! which surprises me because the TV even has a USB 3.0 port.
It is from my understanding that FAT32 is limited to 2TB and NTFS is limited to 16TB which brings me to my question(s):
Does the 2TB limitation still apply in WebOS 3.5? if the limitation does still apply is the limitation caused by Hardware or Software? If the limiation does still apply can you use multiple partitions or is the limitation the entire drive?
PS. I plan to use NTFS.
I am developping a web application to display in a Smart TV. This app reproduced a video flow that comes from a IP cam. The problem I have, is that the browser of the TV stores every flows as an image in the memory, so in a few time the memory is full and the borwser gets slow until it stop working.
Has anybody a similar problem? I can't display an app which takes 5 minutes switching views :S
Thanks to everyone.
