4K YouTube video memory crash


Recommended Posts

So you buy a LG 4k ready TV,  you load the YouTube app that came pre installed and that you have updated to the latest version so you can see 4K quality. Then you try to watch ANY 4K video and the you get the app "out of memory" crash. WTF why is the TV free memory not large enough to play 4K videos via the app? What needs to be done to make this work? Add more memory, free up memory, uninstall everything?  Most apps including the LG browser crash consistently with this memory message. Don't you test this stuff before releasing it?
Come on LG give some feedback on the real issue and more importantly what can be done to fix it?

As a rule of thumb LG do not develop the apps for webOS, that is the purview of the content providers.

Plus this a user to user forum and there is no guarantee that LG even looks at forum such as this one, although if they have any sense they will.

There is a sticky post with a link to the LG portal where you can detail the problems you are having.  Add in to your communication with them all the relevant details of your TV, firmware and the release version of any relevant apps.  Make it clear you are a member of this forum and that you will detail what responses you get from them here.  That way at least it is made clear that you are not one person alone who they can ignore.

      I have LG TV UF6800. TV is working well. The youtube app had worked well until a couple month ago. The yoyube hangs very often after playing advertisement. It also hangs after playing a long video (around 30 min). By "hangs" I mean it is still there, showing the youtube UI, but we cannot play any video. Just black, staying there forever.
      I am using wired network on the TV. 
      I tried updating app, nothing. I googled and tried unpluging power while watching...., no help. BTW the youtube (with the same user) works well on PC and iPad.
      If you think this is not LG's problem, please advise to whom I should contact.

      Below are the details of my model and OS information.  With this version, there is no support for Sony LIV and voot app. It will be beneficial if such apps are also provided.

      Programmes
      Device Name
      [LG] webOS TV LJ616D

      On an LG CX 55, two minutes into episode 4 -- "The Tomb" -- of the series Moon Knight on Disney+ there is a scene with statuettes in niches each lit by an oil lamp. As the flames flicker, dark blotches jump around some of the niche walls.
      These are certainly unintended artifacts.
      Can someone confirm wether this is a CX (only) issue?

      Hello,
      We are a company developing streaming apps for our customers. As-to enhance developer / tester / any other teams experience into LG universe, and be able to quickly test any environments we have (dev / staging / production), we'd like to be able to install apps that aren't removed after Developer Mode expires, or aren't visible/listed to the public store.
      We looked upon the idea to extend Developer Mode session with a Crontab with specific accounts for each TV, but some TVs are stopping the Developer Mode when being powered down, so it doesn't seem the most industrialised idea.
      Let me know what we can do to answer that issue !
      Thanks !

      Hi people,
       
      Recently bought one 49LF6350 and one 43LF6350 and the two models have the same problem, whenever I try to open an application, informs me that I have to update (required update, you must update this app to launch it. the update may cause data to be stored deleted.), and when I try to update, it gives an error message (application has not Been instaled. try again). It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?
       
      software version: 3:03:04
      WebOS TV version: 2.0.2-3928 (behive-badlands)
       
      thanks.
