Video can not display in right orientation in my LG Smart TV

Question

am a LG customer from Hong Kong, I encounter a video display issue in my LG Smart TV. I reported this to Hong Kong support team, but it seems that they cannot help me and giving me an unsatisfactory explaination, so I seek for help from here.

 

My Smart TV model is 43UH7500 with running WebOS 05.30.20, which is the latest version, the build in media player cannot display video in correct orientation, the portrait MP4 video I taken from various smartphone become landscape direction in the TV, for instance, I take a video of Eiffel Tower when travelling to Paris, the tower will lie down horizontally when displaying in the TV no matter the file source is come from a DLNA media server or direct USB connection, even from your LG media server, Smart Share, while there is no problem when displaying in other video player, e.g. Windows media player or Smart TV of other brand.  I contacted Hong Kong Support and attached the sample video to them for investigation, turns out they reply me that is the "feature" of LG TV, and did not commit taking any follow up action to fix this issue.  Here is their final reply.

 

"According to your case, we tested the video you sent to us, the problem is not related to hardware or operate.

TV's player do not meeet your requirements. We will submit your comment to company for reference."

 

I feel very disappointing with the response,  is watching a video in correct orientation is my requirement only?  And other users will feel happy to see rotated video?  All I sense is an irresponsible excuse without caring customer experience. 

 

I hope anyone can confirm if that really is "feature" of LG TV worldwide as claimed by Hong Kong support team, and there is no plan to fix this issue. My house is small but have 3 LG TVs because of its famous brand with outstanding quality, but I really feeling very disappoint this time.

Your problem is "vertical video syndrome" and I have not seen a TV that can do what you ask. If I read on internet it about this they say Portrait mode video is not video. So what can you do:

  • Use a video editing program to rotate your video.
  • It seems Plex is capable of handeling Portrait mode video. There is a native app for the LG tv for Plex
  • Mount your TV on a wall and rotated it if needed.

But in general, don't make Portrait video if you every want to see it on a TV.

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,

      OK. I have a 2018 LG Smart TV model OLED65C8PUA.   The TV  'magically' recognizes and (badly) displays/ plays the 2gb of photos, videos and audio residing on my Western Digital 4TB My Passport  external hard drive I have. The problem is the TV is the ONLY device that WILL RECONIZE THE DRV! 8 diffirent computers running from Vista to Win 10 have given me 'DRV (x) is not accessable'. At one time the drv was password protected and it worked fine. The exact password was lost so I tried a number of variations and was able to finally unlock the drv and remove the password  using WD Utilities. It worked for a bit and I was able to copy out a few files using a Surface Pro/ Windows 10  but it stopped and now with that Surface Pro and the other windows machines  I get `D is not accessible. The parameter is incorrect'.  I even put it on a Samsung smart TV - none will read the drv, ONLY THE LG!  The LG also displays the DRV'S volume label and  content filenames as well. 
      I want to copy these files before the drive fails as the catch here is the LG seems to produce one or two "unrecognized files' every time I use it and some of these videos are one-of family heirlooms! I want to avoid another $300 data recovery bill if possible. And if the LG can read it one would think there is a way forward.
      Any suggestions will be most appreciated!
