Short answer: Something on my network is causing the crashes.
I had an extra router, so I put it between my network and the TV.
Netflix no longer crashes, and other apps no longer give me the dreaded, "This app will now restart to free up more memory" error.
Longer answer: Netflix would regularly crash out to Live TV after 20-40 minutes of play. I've been on LG support with this for months. They've replaced the main board twice, and took it off-site where the problem could not be replicated.
I reset the TV and connected it to my smart phone data plan (luckily just upgraded to 10 GB). No crashes. Put the TV back on my network, crashed after half an hour.
I took the network cable out of the TV and plugged it into a spare WiFi router. This creates a small network of only one device (the TV). I no longer get crashes.
Unfortunately, this kills local network features like DLNA/Plex streaming and wireless display mirroring, but all Internet apps like Netflix and YouTube work flawlessly.
I plan to narrow down which device(s) on my network is the cause of the crashes, but after 10 months of fighting this I'm just going to enjoy some 4K streaming for a while. If I learn anything new, I'll post it here.

My tv is not playing videos on YouTube, everything is working fine when I search for something it displays the results, I can browse through videos but when I try to play it just shows loading and nothing happens I never had any issue like this before, I checked my internet connection, tried reinstalling the app and resetting it but no use and my TV model is LG 32LF595B.
Can anyone help me with this.
Thanks in advance.

I am using WebOS3.5 on my LG 49 SJV800V. When I log into my YouTube account on my TV via my smartphone app, I login as the wrong user from my Google account.
In the smartphone app the right user is shown, but when I am signed in on the TV app, the Google User is signed in, instead of the one I am using for YouTube. For people who do not know what I am talking about - you can have different Users in one Google account. A while ago Google decided to merge the Google account with your Youtube account. That is why different users exist.
Is there a way to change to the correct user?
