Cannot activate Google Play and YouTube App
By PoeyYong Wong
I would like to play MP4 video file from my NAS, is this possible from LG Smart TV? I tried on the TV and did not see how I could do this, I also did not see any App that could help me in this area.
My LG TV is connected to my home network so has direct access to my NAS.
Has anyone else had the same problem as me regarding the 'like' button on the YouTube app on my Oled77g7v? There is a thumbs up button and a thumbs down button for each video. These icons are supposed to be just an outline unless you click on them and then they fill in to show you have selected them. However, this no longer works on my TV. It is as if you never clicked. In fact, the 'like' icon is always pre_filled, no matter what I do. This used to work properly and it still works correctly on a Sony TV I have. Any ideas would be very welcome!

I recently purchased an LG OLED48C2AUA. Frankly, I'm not pleased. The biggest problem is searching for programs, particularly across apps. For example, if I'm in Netflix, and search for a program that happens to be in Prime Video, using voice control (Alexa or LG) or the speak button on the remote, I usually get random UTube trailers or other suggestions, or no suggestions at all. It seems I have to know in advance what streaming app it's on, and even that doesn't work all the time. Before purchasing this TV, I used to be able to immediately find the program using the voice control on my Xfinity remote, or the Roku remote (if the program was on a streaming service) and my "unsmart" Sharp TV, with the input set to either cable box or Roku, as appropriate.
I don't want to have to know in advance what app the program is streaming on to find it. I want to be able to simply say "Alexa, show me "Boardwalk Empire", no matter what program or app the TV is currently tuned to. I want the complete list of possibilities to choose from, particularly since some may be free, depending on my subscriptions. Is this possible?

While I have Sonos Beam gen2 connected to my LG 65C12LA via HDMI (eARC) I can’t select any other output device e.g. bluetooth headphones. I can technically select it in TV menu for like 5 seconds, and then output switched back to HDMI (eARC). Is it a bug or feature?
Thanks in advance!
Hi, the Google Play and YouTube apps launch on my new LG Smart TV just fine, but when I attempt to login, E.g to rent a movie, I get a screen that prompts me to visit a browser on any device and go to Google.com/activate, or YouTube.com/activate and enter a generated pin code. I have visited this activate page from iOS and the browser app on my TV. But nothing happens after i have carefully followed the instructions from this web page - I still cannot login to any Google owned apps from my TV. I have checked whether I have the latest apps installed, and it seems that I do because they were last updated in February 2017. I bought my TV in January 2017. I have spent an hour on the phone with Google support, who tried many solutions with me but we had no resolution. How can I successfully log into my Google apps and watch YouTube or movies on my new tv?
