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! :)

      I have a LG UJ6200 with WebOS TV Version 3.9.1-6280403. I use the browser on the TV to watch videos (movies or TV series) hosted by some web sites. I encountered a problem watching a few TV series. For example, I have no problem seeing Ep01 to EP04. But I got Video format not supported error on EP05 and later. I know that it is not the video because I can watch it using my computer chrome browser. It is possible that the web sites has done some updates which the TV browser does not support. Anyone has experience similar problem and found the fix ? Is there any other browser I can install on the TV to see if the problem can be fixed ?
