LG 49UB850V 4K Youtube


Kyou

Question

Hello,
Since a few days, I do not have the possibility to watch videos on the application youtube of my TV LG 49UB850V in 4K.
In the settings, it stops at 1080p.
I have a very good internet connection (fiber optic), and especially, there are still a few weeks, I could do it without problem.
A test video of youtube in 4K is only available in 1080p on my tv, while on the computer, it is available in 4K.
On my most recent LG 55C8 also by the way, the 4K is possible on this same video. I did the test with lots of videos, same result.
LG does not know how to solve the problem, I uninstalled and reinstalled the application but it does not change anything.
I did nothing special on my TV before this change, it is done overnight. Do you have the same problem?

It's the codec problem if I'm not wrong. Just play YouTube from a ps4 Pro or chromecast ultra connecting to your TV. Not sure if it only applies to LG WebOS.

      The amazon prime video was working fine on my LG UM7300 for last 1 year but recently it is showing this weird error "pls check your internet connection". The funny thing is the error happens only when we open the app directly. If you use mouse over on amazon prime video and choose a video directly it works fine. You can then even go to home page of prime video. But whenever directly clicking it shows "pls check your internet connection" and gives a link to amazon.uk page.
      Netflix, Hotstar, Apple Tv everything is working great. Earlier also amazon prime video was taking a bit more time than all other apps for initial loading. But this error started showing a month back only. Tried re-installing the app, reset..but nothing works.
      Any help will be appreciated.

      Hi all,

      I have searched on this forum briefly, but have not found an answer. Long story short: My 6 year old TV is up to date according to the integrated firmware check. However, it appears that it's not the latest WebOS, respectively it doesn't load the latest apps. In particular the prime app from amazon, which offers Champions League football in Germany, but it cannot be selected in the App on the TV. My assumption is that it's because it's an older TV. Maybe I am wrong though. 

      Anyway, is there a way to update the OS of the TV or hack it or whatever to get the latest apps and OS?

      Cheers,
      K

      Hi. I have two LG Smart TVs that were purchased in 2014 and have the YouTube apps pre-installed. I would really like to uninstall them if possible but despite searching everywhere online cannot find the answer. All of the current threads or videos refer to newer models where the screen layout is different with all the apps lined up at the bottom of the screen. My TVs have app ‘cards’ and I simply cannot edit card 1 which has the pre-installed apps on it. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks, Nigel.
