LG webOS TV not loading Plex app (Network Error -337)


Noel Walker

Question

When trying to load the Plex app on an LGWebOs smart TV, app says :-

CHECK NETWORK CONNECTION    Error CODE : -337

This may be a temporary issue. 
Please try again later. 

(RETRY)     (EXIT APP)

 

  • Firstly my network connection is fine. Netflix and YouTube loads and runs just seamlessly.
  • This has only been happening in the last few months
  • If I (RETRY) after a long wait sometimes it connects and loads correctly or I get the same error again.
  • I have tried other Plex clients on my home server and they work just fine. 

Specs:

  • LG OLED65C8PTA TV running Web OS 04.10.15.
  • LG Plex client app is version 2.1.6 from Sep 2016
  • Plex server is on my QNAP NAS and at version 1.13.5.291 from Sep 2018.

I guess my question is, if the LG Plex client app hasn't changed since 2016 and my Plex server is working for other clients, then what is going wrong?

Cheers
Noel

Since I originally posted this question, several things have happened. I have had several different versions of the Plex Server App on my QNAP NAS, and also there has been an update to the Plex Client App on the LG TV. Anyhow the upshot of all this is that my Plex on LG has been working well for about 6 month or so now, and to be quite honest, I'm not sure what has resolved the issue. I did not try your method, only because my thought was if it is working now then don't change anything... ;-)

What you said in your YT video made sense though.

      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.

      After updating my LG 60SJ850V to version 06.00.25 software everything went wrong...
      Connected via ethernet cable and youtube has buffering issues. Get stuck for few seconds and then sped thtough for few.  Has good fibre connection and never had this issue. 
      Also when watching from external hard drive, the video's get stuck and giving issues where there never were any problems.
      Can't connect TV to wifi anymore.
      Message toggles between LAN cable disconnected followed by  LAN ethernet connected the whole time.
      Smart remote has connection issues.
      This is extremely annoying. How can I get these issues fixed? Tried all the fixes that I could find for previous software update problems, but nothing works.

      Doorway to Top-notch Programming with
      Intuitive Controls and Tailored Viewing Recommendations

      SEOUL, Oct. 12, 2021 — LG Electronics (LG) will substantially expand the availability of content streaming options for third-party TVs running its proprietary webOS platform. With the firmware update now rolling out, viewers with webOS TVs can enjoy an enriched viewing experience with even more popular services to choose from.1
      To expand access to its popular TV platform to more consumers worldwide and strengthen its presence in the TV industry, LG made its advanced webOS platform available to other TV brands starting this year. As both a manufacturer as well as an operating system developer, LG is now better able to deliver its vision for an easier, more streamlined content viewing experience to a wider audience.
      From September through the end of this year, support will be added for a number of premium content services, including Disney+, Vudu, Pandora, HBO Max and SLING TV.2 Disney+, which is quickly becoming a global favorite, will be available on TVs running webOS in every market where the service is currently offered.3
      Disney+ is packed with family-friendly content ranging from beloved classics to original feature-length films, shows and documentaries from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic. Disney+ is the exclusive home of Marvel Studios’ critically and commercially acclaimed original series including WandaVision, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, Loki and its first animated series What If…?. Additional notable original programs on Disney+ this year include Billie Eilish’s cinematic concert experience Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles, Dug Days, a new series based on the 2009 Disney and Pixar hit film Up and the upcoming The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure premiering on December 29.
      Customers of Vudu on webOS-powered TVs will be able to enjoy over 10,000 free feature films without a subscription, as well as rent or buy the latest movies and TV shows.4 Vudu’s early access to new movies allows the service to offer many titles in 4K Ultra HD with support for Dolby image and audio enhancing technologies.
      And on most TVs running webOS, LG’s popular Magic Remote enhances the exceptional convenience and usability of LG’s platform. With its point-and-click interface and intuitive controls, the user friendly LG Magic Remote also offers integrated voice recognition for even more convenient usability.

      Hello I have a 2020 LG oled 65 inch tv and I am connected to internet via wifi. I checked connections and they are all good and working. I have standard apps that came with TV installed Netflix, Disney plus ect. And now TV is saying they both need to be updated to have access to those apps. Everytime I go to update and click on update it says the app is not installed so it won't update when I look to make sure app is installed it shows they are.
      I am confused on what's going on and how to update these apps and get access to them again. 
       
      Any help would be greatly appreciated thx

      Hi,
      I have recently bought new OLED55BX. But as soon as I've added channels through satelite tuner I cannot change order of them. I think I'm in right section, because the legend of buttons in the right bottom corner says "change number of channel", "move channel" and so on. But when I press any of these, error pops up saying "cannot change channels from 1 to 778" (probably all of I have found at tuning). If anyone knows how to repair this please help.
      Thanks and Merry Christmas.

      Hi,
      When we try to play HLS stream in production app in LG tv (some models LG 49UH652V , LG UK6700PVD) it enters into infinite buffering state. In debug mode using webOSIDE could see `loadedmetadata` event is not getting triggered by video-player.
      It works randomly says 1 in 10 attempts able to play the content.
      I tried with youtube and other apps as well, looks like all the LIVE streams are entering into infinite buffering state.
      Can you please advice why live streams (HLS) are not playable in some LG TV's?  Is there any work around to resolve this issue? Please assist.
      Regards,
      Indrani
