Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.
LGTV had a new Sling TV app update which left me with no Channels option in Sling. I only have the Guide and Search Options. How can I get the Channels selection back?
we are developing player for LG, we want to get available subtitles for the VOD, like this one

Note : audioTracks() work like charm.
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...?
I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
I cannot modify my files to another video format.
Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

After updating to 5.10.10, remote short cuts in Youtube does not work any more. Would be great if resolved.
The LG TV Plus app for Android works fine for me but it can only turn OFF tv and not turn it ON. I assume that it is because when TV is off it is no longer on the WIFI network and the app cannot communicate with it. My Roku Android app can turn ON and OFF my LG TV. So, I first turn it on with the Roku app then boot up the LGTV Plus app. Seems ridiculous that LG could not figure out how to turn on the TV.
Does anyone know of a fix?

Hello all, I'm new to the forum, this question might be a silly one but oh well, so I bought a Lg OLED65E7P, I don't use the remote often but I do use the webOS LG TV PLUS remote app on my apple iPhone x, on the app remote there's no option to turn on the tv, but there is an option to turn it off, has anyone experienced this as well? it makes it a little inconvenient to always have to turn on the tv via Apple TV 4k trigger, is there a way I can turn on the tv from the lg WebOS remote app?
