I use it as well (on other platforms). KODI has  another useful feature -  it allows playing media from network devices (Windows share, Samba).

Hi,

As with all other OS platforms it is usually the onus of the programme producer (in this case KODI) to produce an app for webOS.  It seems that the team behind KODI do not have any plans to accommodate those people that want to use their product on the webOS platform:

So folks if you want KODI you are voicing your wants on the wrong forum.

George, 

We can take the easy way out like you and see if there are any KODI app developers working with LG... OR... we can put the pressure on LG to work to get a working KODI (and HBO GO) app up and running, as so many of the LG customers are insisting.  LG is sitting back hoping app developers are coming to them with solutions, instead of working to get WebOS developers onboard to get ahead of the curve and keep its customers from moving to Samsung, etc.   This is so reminiscent of the HP WebOS tablet fiasco, where HP did not partner with enough WebOS developers to allow this platform to be a success.  It seems, based on your comments alone, that the attitude has remained the same.

While I do agree with some of your points (especially the entire HP fiasco) it is unlikely that LG are going to pursue KODI to produce an app for webOS.  The market share of those users wanting KODI is going to be minute and there is little to no reason to think LG would recoup any investment they made in to an app.  If KODI are not going to produce a Samsung Tizen app with their much larger market share of TV sales than LG, then I cannot see it happening for us.  KODI end users could also go to the official suggestions page at LG (listed elsewhere on the forum) and ask LG to pursue the matter, as well as voicing your requests on the official KODI forum, if of course you have not already done so.

LG probably may not be pursing partnerships strongly enough but, there is no real way of knowing unless someone at the company actually chimes in and lets us know.  It is possible that developers do not want to spend the time and money producing apps for a platform that compared to others has a limited market share.  At the end of the day webOS is meant to be relatively easy to program for being based around HTML5 & JavaScript.   

I am not sure what you meant about HBO GO, there is an app after all, it is that it is bad in some way?

      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

      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.

      Unique Display Solution Redefines Work in the New Era

      SEOUL, Oct. 19, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) announces the launch of LG One:Quick, a display solution so revolutionary that its arrival brings with it a whole new category. Developed in response to the new ways people work, LG One: Quick has the potential to change and expand how individuals, coworkers and teams communicate in the new reality of remote working. LG One:Quick consists of One:Quick Works (model 55CT5WJ), One:Quick Flex (model 43HT3WJ) and One:Quick Share (model SC-00DA), a dedicated wireless screen sharing solution.*
      One:Quick Works is an advanced 55-inch 4K UHD video conferencing display and all-around productivity tool suitable for a variety of workplace environments such as a conference room. One:Quick Flex with its 43-inch 4K UHD touchscreen is designed with a movable stand to accommodate diverse usage scenarios across all types of businesses settings.

Once paired with One:Quick Share, users can easily and quickly connect their laptops wirelessly to compatible LG digital signage products.
      One:Quick Works For Maximum Productivity
      A welcome addition to any conference space, LG One:Quick Works delivers seamless interactive communication for smooth, productive office meetings. A winner of Red Dot Award 2021 and iF Design Award 2021, this all-in-one solution features a built-in Windows PC, crisp 4K UHD camera, microphone, speaker and digital whiteboard. In addition to LG’s built-in video conferencing solution, One:Quick Remote Meeting, users can use shortcuts to effortlessly install popular video conferencing and collaboration apps such as Teams, Webex and Zoom to instantly enhance productivity. The high-gain microphone is effective in clearly capturing voices up to six meters away with minimal background noise while the 3,840 x 2,160 resolution camera automatically tracks and focuses on the individual speaking. Both the camera and microphone can be easily disabled for maximum privacy and peace of mind.

Ready out-of-the-box and free for the first six months, LG’s One:Quick Remote Meeting video conferencing application works seamlessly with One:Quick Works to share documents in various formats, perform real-time interactive drawings and automatically detect who’s speaking on the other end.

With a video camera that captures a wide 88-degree field of view, the display rotates to work in both landscape and portrait modes and features a split-view mode for easier multitasking. A microphone and camera, intuitive interface, full touch pen support and whiteboard functionality complete the package. One:Quick Flex can be mounted to a movable stand for easy transport between the shared meeting space to the CEO’s corner office for an important video conference.
      One:Quick Share For Wireless Screen Sharing  
      LG One:Quick Share allows users to effortlessly share their laptop screens with compatible LG digital signage models. After the simple connection process, users can share their PC screen by simply pressing the button on the One:Quick Share USB dongle. Switching the source device is just as easy, with up to four sources able to connect to LG digital signage products simultaneously. And with One:Quick Share, setting adjustments of connected LG signage products such as volume, picture mode and screen brightness can be performed without a remote control.
      “As a market leader in developing solutions for businesses, LG always strives to deliver thoughtfully-designed, technologically-advanced products that make work more productive and convenient,” said Paik Ki-mun, senior vice president and head of the Information Display business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Our new One:Quick series is a solution borne out of necessity by a new environment that forced us to think outside the box.

      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.
