I have LG TV UF6800. TV is working well. The youtube app had worked well until a couple month ago. The yoyube hangs very often after playing advertisement. It also hangs after playing a long video (around 30 min). By "hangs" I mean it is still there, showing the youtube UI, but we cannot play any video. Just black, staying there forever.
I am using wired network on the TV.
I tried updating app, nothing. I googled and tried unpluging power while watching...., no help. BTW the youtube (with the same user) works well on PC and iPad.
If you think this is not LG's problem, please advise to whom I should contact.
I can watch Netflix and Amazon Prime and I want to watch DisneyPlus, I don't want to buy a new TV because of that stupid firmware, there is lot of complaints regarding to that issue at all forms. Please for your brand benefits and for the user rights solve that problem and release a new update for these TVs. I am waiting an official answer that explain whether you solve it or not. Thank you.

While watching YouTube on my WebOS TV, I very frequently pause the picture and I do not like the picture dimming the second i hit pause. It makes an extremely unpleasant experience when the remote requires 6 actions to go from 'pause' to 'play'.
Step 1) push 'pause' (screen goes dim)
Step 2) 'up arrow' (to get rid of dimming)
Step 3) 'up arrow' a second time (to finish getting rid of dimming)
Step 4) push 'play' (screen goes dim)
Steps 5 +6) repeat steps 2+3 (screen is now bright and playing)
6 steps? 2 steps is the ONLY logical number. 1) pause and 2) play (actually just pause for both pausing and play but we'll leave that for now) 6 steps makes for a VERY unpleasant viewing experience.
Yes I am aware the screen will return after about 3 seconds. (unpleasant/frustrating)
Yes I am aware that I can use the 180 degree arrow key to reduce the number of steps to only 4. There are 2 problems with this method. 1) Its still 2 steps too many. 2) If i wait a split second too long, the screen will return to bright screen at the same moment I push the button and now that 180 degree arrow button is programmed to return you to the main menu. This makes it even more aggravating because I now have to go into the history menu to restart the video.
Can someone please tell me how to eliminate the auto dimming? If its not possible, can the webOS programmers just reprogram the system to stop doing this. Yes, its a first world problem, but when you hit 'pause' as much as i do, honestly want to return the TV. I can't take how poorly it was designed. It makes no sense. thank you for your help.
