WebOs should support exFAT

Recommended Posts



Most devices support FAT32 and exFAT as the major OSes( Windows,Linux,MacOSX) support them  almost as their native filesystem. Its strange to see LG TV support a proprietary and which is badly/not fully supported on all OSes: NTFS. This filesystem  (NTFS) should be the last to support on any other device thats not a Windows machine.

 My problem: I use a macos and can not write on NTFS devices. If I wish to view a 4K movie (64GB) , I have to pay an additional 20-30$ for a software that allows my mac to write/format NTFS files to a usb stick. The free-open-source software ntfs-3g its not good enough because it takes about 3hours to write a 4k movie (64GB) on a USB3.0 (UltraFit).

Great TV LG, but thanks a lot (sarcastically) for  taking from me more money and time to write my wedding on a USB3.0 so that I can view it on the TV.

I switched for a 2015 Samsung LED to a OLED C8 & tried to use my USB drive which was formatted in exFat & had lots of video data on it & naturally didn't work. The drive was 8Gb & 2 formats were offered; exFat & NTFS. To my surprise, my C8 accepted NTFS. I really didn't think NTFS would work as it's a Microsoft file system & not as universal as exFat should be.

The NTFS HDD still support in old TV C7 but we would like web OS support more for exFAT

Absolutely! There's no reason not to & plenty why it should. NTFS is Microsoft & excludes many who use Mac, Linux, etc. That's why it surprised me that WebOS accepted NTFS. ExFat is universal. Make it happen WebOS! :)

    • Reading exFAT formatted USB storage devices

      Yesterday, I connected my 2 TB external HDD formatted as exFAT to my 55" webOS TV to realise that it was not reading - turns out that the TV does not support exFAT.

    • What ABR content formats and what DRMs are supported?

      Hi,   Just trying to get a clear picture on what Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) content formats are supported and what DRMs are supported for each content format on LG Webos smart TVs. I am wondering if the  information on  http://webostv.developer.lge.com/discover/specifications/webos-tv-platform/supported-media-formats/  is up to date, as if so then LG is so far behind the market... I'll list my questions: 1. the page says that HLS is supported, but only with Verimatrix. is this true? 2. the page does not specify that HSS or DASH are supported. is this true? 3. the page says that WV is supported only its "classic" version and not the new "modular" version. is this true? 4. the page says that PlayReady is supported, but there is no mentioning of which content format it can be supported with. Does someone know the answer for this?   Thanks for any info on this. M.
