Slow browser (TV 55lb671v-zb)

Question

Any Ideas?

The web browser is really slow. It has Always been slow but has gotten slower and slower. Resetting the TV did not help. When selecting a box for Writing it may take 15 s to get the selected letter to show in the box. Typing the name of for example a TV show takes minutes. No errormessages are ever shown but it seems like a memory issue. but then again I hoped it would get better as I did the reset. Any ideas?

Just got off the phone to lg support. I was told the web browser shuts down when attempting to stream video ON PURPOSE! Furthermore, once you stream anything from the internet, the cache fills up, does not clear, and prevents the installed apps from functioning properly.  I was told that the OS is a web browser NOT a web streaming service and if they allow customers access to stream video they will be in breach of their contractual agreement to the companies who have apps on the TV. This clearly doesn't happen on tablets or phones, so their logic for creating a sub par product is utter bollocks. I specifically asked the salesman if I could stream video from the internet and was told absolutely yes. When I pointed this out to Lg customer service they re-iterated that a web browser does not confer the ability to stream video. This is misleading the customer, and effectively censoring and filtering internet content.  This must stop!

    • Question: Web browser video support?

      I have homemade video files stored online in a Google Drive directory that I would like to display on my LG webOS TV UJ6200 with software version 05.80.10 using the web browser.  The browser displays the drive page and video file list fine, but when one is selected to play, the "I'm busy" buffering starts endlessly.  Exactly what container plus video and audio codec combinations does the browser support, if any?   It seems to be incapable of the combinations I have tried, or something else is ha

    • Netflix on WebOS Browser

      We want to watch netflix on the browser not the app. The login page appears but when we click on the Play button a screen appears talking about HTML5 and Silverlight. We know what HTML5 and Silverlight are but find it strange that the WebOS browser does not support this markup language on its player. Oddly YouTube works fine in the browser. Does anybody know how to get the WebOS browser to run HTML5?

      Recently am facing frequent crashes and slowness when using the Browser.
