Low Memory in WebOS Smart TV


P K Prabhakar

Question

Hi, WebOS TV manufacturers!

I have spent Rs. 65000 (About $1000) on my LG WebOS Smart TV. Still I have got only 512mb internal memory. Now my TV has started showing me low memory errors every now and then. It means my TV is no more a smart TV now. It can not play movie on browser for more than half an hour when some other app is open. Immediately it flashes error "running on low memory". What a rubbish thing you have manufactured. Where other TV manufactures e.g. MI, VU, Samsung, etc, are providing more than 2 GB memory in their smart TVs for a price as low as 60% of what you are charging, you are providing a useless memory of 512 mb. What a shit!! Now please tell me the solution to increase my internal memory or else I am going to share my experience on every social media and online market forums.

Now they have ruined YouTube app as well. After the update you cannot select the timeline of video via magic remote's mouse, now you have to rely on buttons of remote to forward the video in YouTube which is very slow. 

The only people that have ruined the YouTube add is YouTube themselves as they write the app...  Not being a programmer I am going to guess that the YouTube app is a Hosted (Server Hosted) app and not a Packaged app, which is why the interface seems to change more regularly than the installed package does.  Perhaps this is the reason the app crashes so much, is there some issue with it fetching data from the YouTube servers and mishandling memory or memory leak?

      Almost a year since I have my LG C1 still no Google Assistant or Smart home assistant support for Philippines. It's included in the website and marketing materials, but LG left me hanging until now. 
      Definitely a non-smart home friendly TV.

      The leaked LG Electronic document has given an insight into a new Wee Web OS 2 for OLED TV’s along with new gaming capabilities.
      During the past decade over 100M Web OS TV’s have been sold with LG’s Smart TV base surpassing 160M in 2021 with up to 25M devices added yearly.
      Connected TV Platform research shows that there is now 1.28 billion connected devices.
      Samsung and their Tizen OS is on top with 12.7% share, LG and their Web OS is second with 7.3% share while Sony coming in third with 6.4% share.
      Last year LG Electronics gave away their WebOS software to third party TV manufactures a move that allows the3m to collect more revenue from app sales available via their OS which undergoing a makeover so that more third-party apps can be integrated into their Web OS software.
      ChannelNews has been told that several third-party TV manufacturers are set to move to the Samsung Tizen OS, after Samsung followed LG’s move with the offer of free smart TV software for third party manufacturers.
      In the battle to get third-party brands to use their OS, LG is providing an SW turnkey solution to board manufacturers including the ability moving forward for brands to put their own logo on the top of the OS.



      hey are also providing a video for manufacturers to use instore video to promote their TV brand running the LG WebOS software.
      LG’s claims that they have 160 International broadcasters on board as well as close relationships with Microsoft, Dolby, and several other leading brands.
      As part of their new offering LG is set to roll out a new ‘Full Home UX’ Magic Remote.
      The new remote when activated immediately delivers a brand-new home screen with “enhanced usability” the document claims.

      The new chipset also delivers ‘Super Resolution Upscaling” but only on OLED TV’s.
      Also built in is Alexa voice control  but not for the Australian market.
