How to seek (rewind) video file via DLNA?

Question

I am running LG 32LJ610V (webos 3.5)  in combination with WD Mybook World Edition (white ring).
The default media server installed on WD Mybook is TwonkyMedia 5.1.9 but it does not support seeking in video files.
Any suggestions which media server to use? When I am playing the same video file from PC Windows 10 via file sharing it works fine.

What type of mass storage device are you using and which is working fine? (connected to home network)

Thank you

Plex is a popular media server, your WD can be made to run it but it is not ideal as it cannot transcode (going by various forum posts).  If you are able to change your hardware then there are many NAS units that can run Plex, or you could be re-purposed a desktop to be your Plex server.  It depends on your IT skills as to whether you go for an out of the box solution or brew your own.  My Plex server is Dell server with an Intel Xeon E3-1225 CPU, 4GB RAM, a 240GB SDD for the OS and a pair of 4TB WD Red drives with RAID in a ZFS configuration.

I would also like to know.

This guy is able to seek through videos over DLNA without transcoding it seems:

I am also able to rewind out-of-the-box using the magic remote. I have a NAS from QNAP (TS-251). It works with regular DLNA and also Twonky (have not tried Plex yet).

Is there transcoding involved with this method or is the video stream left untouched?

    • Question: files on USB device shown as ._xxx.jpg

      To have a picture  show on my new LG OLED55B87LC I've connected an external USB 3.0 hard disk (formatted with MS-DOS FAT32 on my iMac) that I've filled with hundreds of pictures from my Fotos App.  But when I open this drive on the TV the jpg pictures (numbered 1.jpg to 999.jpg) show up as ._1.jpg to ._999.jpg. When I scroll down at the end the list then the real jpg`s appear. So it looks like there's a copy of each file on this drive starting with  ._  ?? And all of them can't be shown on the TV - they look faulty ?  I've tried out with another drive / USB stick - just the same problem. Does anyone experience the same problems ? Do USB devices have to be formatted in a special way ? Any idea how to solve this ? 

      Ah - and beside this strange thing - is it normal that it last that long for the system of the TV to create all the thumbnail pictures to show on the TV ? When I scroll through a long list of pictures it lasts always a few seconds until the icons of the pictures really show the contents. This is really annoying because it makes the feature useless if I need several minutes to find a picture I'm searching for. Why is it that slow ? Is the USB connection only with 2.0 Standard ? Or is it a performance problem of WebOS ?

    • IPv6 support please

      It's 2016 now. IPv6 has been around since 1997. Some countries are close to 50% deployment of IPv6. Even my home printer supports IPv6. The Linux kernel, on which webOS is based has been supporting a stable IPv6 implementation since the 2.6 kernel series.   This was certainly my main disappointment when I bought a LG Smart TV.
