Please add KODI media center to LG WebOS.

The media player app included in webOS is very laim. Very week.

I would like to have KODI wich is one of the best apps for playing media. It allows librarys, movie infos, etc.

It would be great to have KODI included in webOS. I don't think it would very hard since KODI is already available for Linux and Android. So...

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 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.

      MX player and jio cinema are commonly used Android apps which offers many free to watch movies. It would be great if that two added in the lg store. Hope it'll be added soon

      Hello,
      We are a company developing streaming apps for our customers. As-to enhance developer / tester / any other teams experience into LG universe, and be able to quickly test any environments we have (dev / staging / production), we'd like to be able to install apps that aren't removed after Developer Mode expires, or aren't visible/listed to the public store.
      We looked upon the idea to extend Developer Mode session with a Crontab with specific accounts for each TV, but some TVs are stopping the Developer Mode when being powered down, so it doesn't seem the most industrialised idea.
      Let me know what we can do to answer that issue !
      Thanks !

      I have a LG OLED C8 TV with a Soundbar and when connected to Optical the Volume Control is normal with a Percentage 0% to 100% but when connecting to HDMI ARC port like the Soundbar suggest to be connected it just show + or -,  you don't have anyway of knowing what the volume is set  to.    I have tried two Soundbars a LG LAS551H that was connected via Optical and when connected to HDMI ARC it also does not show Volume Control.  I have  got a new Sonos Beam Gen 2 that is now connected to HDMI ARC port and sounds great but if I connect it to Optical it's much lower in volume but has the Volume indicator.   Please advice.    
      I would like to suggest three enhancement request: 1. to show Volume Percentage on the HDMI ARC port.  2. Optical and HDMI ARC have the same output and 3. the Sonos be added to the Device list under Soundbars. 
      Thank you, 
      Jim Brown
