Question

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?

LG WebOS doesn't play RTMP links, but you can use a little trick for this:

 

In the RTMP link, replace the RTMP:// to HTTP:// and put /playlist.m3u8 on the end of link

 

Ex: rtmp://ipaddress/stream is replaced by http://ipaddress/stream/playlist.m3u8

 

This convert the RTMP stream to HLS stream

 

I don't know if all RTMP works.

    • Question: webos crashes

      Hi, Purchased my first LG TV yesterday. The product has both freeview and freesat and I am using both. Updates the WebOs to latest version and then went through and setup the Apps I use here in the UK. Netflix, BBC, ITV, 4 and 5 During the setup had to update all the apps. Had annoying 'memory full' crashes during this whole process and also while watch some Netflix later.   Questions: Have I bought a dog? Is running Freeview and Freesat at the same time too much for the TV? Can the memory inside the TV be expanded?     Thanks in advance. :-)

      For the past few months I am getting intermittent pop up messages on my TV. 1st one says Wired LAN disconnected, then another message pops up and says Network connected. I have been calling my cable carrier Spectrum and Techs have been here and can't find problem. Also I went to check my wifi on my TV and my user name and connections aren't showing up all of a sudden. This TV was just purchased May 2017. What is going on and how to resolve!!

    • Add Fox+ in the LG Content Store/ webOS

      Can you please make Fox+ available to the LG content store/ webOS. I have a LG 43UJ630V which is a 2017 model and I can't find it on their content store. I subscribed to Fox+ considering I could watch it on a big screen and not only on smart phone. I am very much disappointed that this limits me from watching it on my UHD TV. Subscription is wasted without seeing it on my big screens. We are now in 2019 guys! We are not moving backwards. Let us move forward and make Fox+ available to all subscribers.

      Even the WebOS browser doesn't support playing SONYLIV content due to lack of Flash support. 
      Strangely Chromecast also has issues.

      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
