After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.
I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
I tried to use (with no success):
- Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
- Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
- VLC UPnP feature - same as above
What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

Subtitles as well as all html elements beside video disappear on every website after 2 minutes. The only way to bring them back is to activate cursor with magic remote. This started happening around the beginning of July when new LG browser update rolled out. I managed to get around this by resetting TV to factory settings and evading browser update. This worked until 23rd of July when Web OS update came along . Thinking that problem might be solved i installed it. Turns out this update just integrated this browser error into the OS and now even after resetting to factory the problem cant be avoided. LG had just made the error which could be evaded by downgrading browser mandatory instead of fixing it. This is disgrace. If I had a company with 5 employees the update with error would have never entered circulation and even if it did I would not issue another update which would make error impossible to evade. LG has only billions of dollars and tens of thousands of employees and they do not notice such a major problem even after they have been informed by the users.
Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?
iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up
I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch iPlayer without an issue.
Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps work without any buffering or locking.
Interested to hear your thoughts....

I have a 49UJ634V television. When I install the YouTube app from the content store the app starts to reboot with the pop-up “out of memory app will restart” but this is then with everything . Live-tv, guide, etc
this is a app problem beacause when I delete the app everything else works fine again.
Just bought an LGLED-65UJ630 65INCH TV. Right away I started to get the message "This app will now restart to free up more memory". After searching the internet and forums, I now understand that this problem is huge, it has been going on for years now and it is right across many models of LG TV's.
I have tried everything to fix this problem. It has the latest firmware. I did the factory reset and that lasted 4 hours before I got the message back. I turn off the TV and leave it for 10 minutes, maybe one hour later I get the message. I delete browsing history, maybe 10 minutes and I get the message..... you get the message.
As I understand it, the problem is that LG TV's don't have enough internal memory, but they have shipped a ton of their "smart" TV's with this problem.
My question is, has anybody heard anything from anybody, anywhere about a solution to this problem. I really want to keep this TV, but it is not fit for purpose in this state.
TV MODEL: LG 43UJ635V
DATE OF PURCHASE: 21/11/2017 (4 days ago from post date)
RETAILER: ARGOS UK
WEBOS VERSION: Can't check right now but after I got the TV I updated straightaway to 4.7.XX
INTERNET SPEED: 75Mbps Down / 20 Mbps Up
Hello, I've recently purchased the LG 43UJ635V, as soon as I turned it on and went through first time setup I noticed there was a bit of lag in the animation when I pressed the home button (the moment all the tiles 'bounce' up), however whenever I get off that menu the animation is smooth and everything else is fine. This always happens, I have tried resetting the TV to its initial state and nothing has changed. - Just wondering if anyone else has had that issue?
At one point I changed some of the image quality settings and the whole OS just started lagging making it difficult to navigate so I had to reset the TV for the 3rd time.
Also, occasionally when using apps such as YouTube or the web browser the app will restart with a notification in the top right saying the restart was to clear some memory. Although this isn't too common, I've seen other posts from months ago about people having a similar issue but the apps constantly restart.
I close all recent apps which doesn't change the lag on the home menu but I haven't seen the restart notification in a while which seems like a good sign but I also have been using the internet browser much.
With all the negative experiences I've read about, (related to the memory and general lag) I'm not sure whether I should return the TV or not.
TL;DR: Lag when pressing the home button and all icons appear but no lag when returning to the current app, occasional app restarts due to a low amount of memory.
Try to manufacture 'smart tv's' with sufficient memory to actually run the WebOS apps you claim they can run without those apps crashing with 'out of memory....' errors. This has plagued LG TV's for years and LG still do nothing about it. Memory modules are really low cost items and 32Gb would be a minimum. This might also negate the necessity of having to use separate USB Hard Disk for basic recording and time machine functionality to work something other smart TV manufacturers managed to achieve years ago.
