Won't this delete all my settings, devices and changes?

Yes, but that is sort of the point.

YouTube, Plex and Amazon are the most frequently used apps on my TV.  I cannot recall Amazon ever restarting, Plex has not had an issue since about five revisions ago and even then it was only once or twice.  YouTube has been the most unstable app, which to me says it is more of a programming than an OS/hardware issue.  The latest YouTube update hit my TV a couple of days ago and currently it has been behaving itself, having watched over nearly hours worth of videos without an issue.

In my case, the 3 most used apps for me are netflix, youtube and plex. I have so far no problems with netflix and youtube. But for plex, i encounter stutters and buffers endlessly (source content is streamed via a local server) . While i have yet to encounter app restart issues, I'm looking for how to actually FORCE an app restart. I've been a plex user across platforms and have not had any problems streaming from the same source. But plex for webos gives me grief. I thought a force restart would solve it. My questions are:
1. How do you force close a webos app? (not just remove it from recents)
2. How do you reboot the lg smart tv without taking out the plug? (this is unrelated but couldn't find an answer for this anywhere)

P. S. apologies to the threadstarter for hijacking the thread a bit. Now back to regular programming.

Had the same issue with YouTube restarting. Tried all the suggestions mentioned above but none worked. Finally another forum member found that having both Ethernet and WiFi connections running was the causing the restart problem. I did have bother type of wired and wireless connections so turned off the WiFi wherever I could in Settings and voila restart problem fixed for me.

Hi all thanks but I found that if you make sure that you exit the app you are on then the system on the app shouldn't reboot with the situation  and I have no trouble for a while now so if anyone else has this situation just make sure you exit the app that you are on whether netflix iplayer youtube etc and it should not reset the app thanks again

      Hi.
      When Im playing a movie in an app on my LG OLED TV the screen is turned off after 15 minutter and only showing for the lack of other words its "digital fireworks» and the text "Turn on screen by pressing any button on remote except power button».
      Its really annoying. 
      Every power/eco mode is off and no timer is active?
      Anyone?

      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.
