GoPro on USB port the TV only sees pics and not movies

Question

Hi,

 

Just got an LG 55UJ630V and I'm quite pleased. but yesterday tried connecting my gopro directly with usb cable and the tv only sees photos and not movies.

The GoPro records .MP4 h264 clips so the format is not a problem.

If I copy the .mp4 files to a pen drive the tv sees them ok.

Getting the GoPro microSD on a card reader does not work cause the GoPro formats 64GB cards in exFat format.

I know that the gopro usb connection is not usb mass storage device but PTP. but it should work anyway...

Any tips?

I think the format of the GoPro microSD card is the problem.

For a test you could try using a smaller microSD card and format it in FAT32. See if that works.

I already tried a 16gb microSD from an older gopro in FAT32 and works.

Two things still troubles me.

Since webos is linux based, why shouldn't support exFAT since is getting a common format for also very common large memory cards.

the second is since GoPro connects via PTP exactly to prevent file systems compatibility problems, why can't webos read both photos and movies? PTP is everyday used on smartphones and other devices. GoPro on PTP connection works fine on computers to download photos AND movies. I don't get it why webos only sees the photos...

The problem with exFAT and VFAT, or anything other than FAT16 and FAT32 is that is patented by MicroSoft. And I can imagine that a big company as LG will nu go there.

Why LG doesn't use PTP I don't know.

since linux boxes and macos reads exFAT, are you sure that MS charges fees for it?

 

LG uses PTP. But only sees the photos and not the movies. weird...

You can read about exFAT on the site of Microsoft

It is not free.

Can't you format the microSD card to FAT32 and use that in your new GoPro? The only problem could be the 4Gb file limit.

can't format the card in FAT32 cause that only works on 32GB or smaller cards. already considered getting a 32GB but recording in 2.7K60 or 4K30 takes a huge amount of space...

 

If only PTP worked as it's supposed to work...

The FAT32 limit of 32GB was on Windows 2000. It can be formatted larger they say. Not that this changes the 4GB file size.

It would be easier if PTP worked.

I already tried and I can format in FAT32 but the gopro gives an unformatted error... :(

 

PTP would be awesome and simple. just connect the gopro with usb cable. done. oh well...

Maybe you can connect the microSD from the GoPro to a NAS, a DNLA server or put it in a raspberry pi and they do the conversion for you.

Or you can connect the GoPro to one of those.

I have noticed the LG Smart TV has a lot of features (media player, web browser, photo viewer) that looks great but are a bit rudimental. I used them, but after a while you find better solutions. It's not only LG, you see it on other systems. I have a photo camera that can play music on a tv when showing pictures 😀. Never used it. It is very simple to add features, it hard to make them useful.

that maybe the solution. I still use my pi with openelec for all my 1080p library and ambilight processing. but thinking of adding an android 4k box ;)

    • Question: Player problem

      I used to cast from ace stream directly to my UJ6300 and I had no problems until a few days ago when the TV got an update for WebOS 3.7 I think. Now whenever I try to cast to the TV it just shows a black screen on the "Web App Viewer" app, I was wondering if maybe I could set a different player as default player when streaming from my phone instead of the Web App Viewer, as when I play from other sources it starts the "Photo&Video" player.  Otherwise I think I would have to downgrade the OS to the previous stable version.  Anyone else having this problem?

    • Question: LG UHD TV digital sound out popping noise problem

      Dear Readers,

      I've a strange issue that I've been struggling for a week. I bought an LG43UJ634V UHD TV and an LG LHB645N Home Theater in a Box system.
      I use HDMI ARC to connect the audio from the TV to receiver. LG has an option to chose between PCM or Auto at the Digital output settings.

      If I use the PCM option everything sounds great, but I don't have 5.1, only 2.1.
      And here comes the problem. When I choose Auto, 5.1 is on, sounds great but I have occasional popping noise (like when play something on an old LP player) it happens random, but for example during a film, it is very annoying. It happens with YouTube, Netflix, DLNA streaming, external devices, so the content doesn't matter. I think I've tried everything. I tested it with different HDMI cables, optical cable, but still have the problem. I tested it with a sound bar as well, the problem is the same.
      When I play content from the receiver, there is no problem, the sound is wonderful, no popping. Also, the TVs speakers are okay.

      I don't think it is a hardware issue, because the TV's sound is OK, the home theater's sound is OK, the problem only happens when I want to use the digital output of the TV (either HDMI ARC or Optical) with auto setting.
      I called LG as well, the rep. said the she will pass this info to the technical team.

      Do you have any idea, that it can be solved, or I need to wait for a software update?
