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


nmb1970

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

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

 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 ;)

      When i start my tv it boots up at HDMI 2 ARC which is the last one used and the one I want to use (Sound bar/apple tv connected), but then the tv changes to HDMI 4 and I don't understand why because there's nothing connected to it. It does this every time. I start my tv via my apple tv remote. Is there a way to force HDMI 2? Set it as default?

      I have a LG OLED C8 TV with a Soundbar and when connected to Optical the Volume Control is normal with a Percentage 0% to 100% but when connecting to HDMI ARC port like the Soundbar suggest to be connected it just show + or -,  you don't have anyway of knowing what the volume is set  to.    I have tried two Soundbars a LG LAS551H that was connected via Optical and when connected to HDMI ARC it also does not show Volume Control.  I have  got a new Sonos Beam Gen 2 that is now connected to HDMI ARC port and sounds great but if I connect it to Optical it's much lower in volume but has the Volume indicator.   Please advice.    
      I would like to suggest three enhancement request: 1. to show Volume Percentage on the HDMI ARC port.  2. Optical and HDMI ARC have the same output and 3. the Sonos be added to the Device list under Soundbars. 
      Thank you,

      if anyone maybe knows a idea to resolve this, please share, thanx..
      in Turkey.. oled55c1 media player can not play english audio track in the m2ts movie file from usb.. it will sound funny but, it seems like WebOs or its built-in Media Player is against english.. : (( it plays the m2TS audio track within the file with russian, spanish or italian but wierdly not english.. ¿¿?? when you go to audio tracks list setting there are no language titles.. the list only shows "song languages" or something like that.. and under that menu there are listings as 1, 2, 3..   it should list language audio tracks formally as it should be..            1: English   2: Russian   3: Spanish    or whatever listed in the file..   this is not only one-file problem.. As far as I know this issue exists in every 2021 and 2022 LG oled smartTVs WEBOS models and built-in media players for every m2TS file movies... 
      if anyone would ask; for these movie files on PC windows OS there's no problem at all.. english audio track is there.. and plus; Samsung plays this file with english audio track without any problems.. : ((((
      what about installing mpc-hc on WebOs? would that resolve this issue ? possible someday ?
      hope this issue will be resolved with updates soon..

      Turned on the TV but the soundbar remained off, turned on with its remote control .. I do not understand why if I now try to turn on and off they both do it without problems .. after a bit of inactivity it does not do so .. some kind of energy saving TV or SB?

      Seeing this error when accessing the content store.
      Long story short, I'm able to watch netflix and various other streaming services but Disney+ went "weird" recently and would allow me to navigate to various shows but then always encounters a "problem".  I noticed Disney+ has a new app update on various Android devices I own so I figured it might need an update on my LG OLED 55E6V  too.  But the content store has been temporarily unavailable for 24 hours now.
      It's the first time I'm seeing this - anyone else? 
      I updated my email-based LG account and consented to some new terms and conditions in the hope it would make a difference but now I feel like I was mugged into that, all for nothing.  Meantime... no Disney+ and no way to check my LG WebOS apps are up to date (strongly suspect there might be a new Disney+ app).  The "Account Management" option on my TV results in a black screen and this just feels like things are unravelling.
      I have firmware 05.60.15 and no updates are available.
