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.

      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.
