I used to cast from ace stream directly to my UJ6300 and I had no problems until a few days ago when the TV got an update for WebOS 3.7 I think. Now whenever I try to cast to the TV it just shows a black screen on the "Web App Viewer" app, I was wondering if maybe I could set a different player as default player when streaming from my phone instead of the Web App Viewer, as when I play from other sources it starts the "Photo&Video" player. 

Otherwise I think I would have to downgrade the OS to the previous stable version. 

Anyone else having this problem?

Finally someone else with the same issue! Im sorry to hear obviously but its Almost impossible to google being too convoluted with 'mirracast' and 'screen mirroring' :@

Fyi. Im using  LG UK6400PLF. Exact same issue. I use acestream(acemedia) on android and select my tv as the device to play the video on. Now after the initial webOS app loading-circle its just an unresponsive black screen on the tv. Its seems like the player hasn't kicked in atall because theres no buttons or 0.00 timer or anything.

 Always worked brilliantly until 1/2 weeks ago,  would play the video much better than using screen mirroring (its the only way i can use the hdr setting and motion smooth ).  

I have not had time to contact customer support directly yet will try tomorrow. 

To OP: I managed to get an okayish stream through 'screen-mirroring'  and using vlc player as the player. Vlc will cast the image to your tv WITHOUT duplicating the image on the phone as well. Nowhere near as good but its smoothest and most stable i could get it. Video player or gallery seem to slow the phone down too much. 


Please update if you resolve i will do the same. Tried all the std resets etc nothing happening.

Anyway to roll back software?

Same exact problem with me. Everything working fine until some point and then it stopped working.

First got the mentioned black screen showing nothing but  the player buttons and the 0.00 timer. Now everytime I try to cast from Ace Stream, it fails, and I can just briefly see on the tv a menu (which quickly disappears) asking if I accept or not the connection request. I can't neither accept or deny because the menu disappears, almost like the tv is blocking the connection.

Any thoughts on how solve it?

So, it seems like the WebOS update messes up the Ace Stream casting. 

If your android phone is Samsung (mine is S9+), you can use the built-in Smart View's  Screen Mirror function to connect to the tv and then play the Ace Stream content on the phone. The good thing about it is you can still use other apps on your phone and they won't show up on your tv, just the Ace Stream content.  I am not sure non-Samsung Android phones can do the same though.

Hopefully, another WebOS update will fix the problem.

LG 55E5, same problem.

The pairing works, I managed to control de volume in the phone, but the screen is black, and I don't see the time-skiping bar.

I've downgraded the AcePlayer app, with no avail. More upgraded the LG Firmware and nothing...

Is there any change we could use an external app? To play the video stream that is played in the phone app?

The new webos version was released for me this morning. I have updated to 04.10.31 from 04.10.04 but the acestream cast functionality is still broke!

Argh was convinced the newest update would resolve this being so soon :/.

Has anyone had any luck with reverting to an earlier version? I almost got there but security restrictions on my works laptop mean i can't use this conputer to "host" the update (downgrade) files.

      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

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.

      After updating to the latest web browser with new user interface on LG C9, subtitles on all streaming websites disappears every 2-3mins.
      Video continues to play without subs. The subtitles will re-appear if I move the magic remote but disappears again after 3mins.
      Should be a widespread issue as it's also happening on Youtube.com videos with subs. Un-related but Play/Stop button on magic remote also stop working on the new browser.
