Question

Last Friday the 26th of October I was able to play all of the shared files (mp4, avi, divx, mkv, almost anything) on several of my computers on my network on my LG OLED 65C7P and had been doing so for the past 10 months. Saturday morning Nothing would play. I can navigate to the files on the computer with the TV but everything returns the message "This file cannot be recognized. Do you want to play the next file." The next file after waiting several minutes returns the same message. I then tried another computer on the network with the same results. I was wondering if the TV had downloaded an update that screwed this up. The software version is 04.71.00 and the WebOS TV Version is 3.71-57127 (dreadlocks2-drto). The TV plays my cable box and input from my amp fine. I stream almost everything from my compter and I will be lost without this function.

What I did to solve this problem was to insert a video file on a flash drive and play that for a couple of seconds without a problem and the TV then began playing the files on my network. I am back in business. I know this sounds strange but it is what happened. While doing all of this I was thinking of resetting the TV back to factory settings but I could not locate the password in my manual. Can anyone help me with that?

      Any reason I can't find HBO Max on my LG OLED C6? WebOS is fully updated. I was told it was available on WebOS now but it's nowhere. If it's bc my TV has an old WebOS I'd like to know if I can install a newer one or of the hardware simply isn't compatible and I need to buy something like Fire stick just so I can have HBO Max (f'in absurd if that's the case)

      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.

      Just getting the runaround from LG, only want a baseline figure, they sent me this
       
      , our technicians have explained that we cannot calculate the unit's actual power consumption when not in standby because there are too many factors that could affect this calculation. These factors include how many pixel refreshers are run, whether the unit is connected to the internet, external devices connected, speakers connected, sound systems connected, HDD connected and recording set ups. I am afraid that we consequently cannot answer your question.

      we all know LG are not helpful to customers , but there’s no need to keep proving it.
      this TV has a good energy rating so figures must be available, they either dont care or understand what I am asking
       
      thanks
