LG 49UB850V 4K Youtube


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.

      I have an LG-43UN73006LC purchased in the UK - but it does not have a My5 app for watching Channel 5 related programmes  in catch up.
      Channel 5 is one of the main 5 programme channels here in the UK - so why no support from LG?
      How can they call this a Smart TV without support for the basic UK Channels?
      Even my ancient Humax box had My5 app

      After using this LG "Smart TV" for about 2 years now, i can honestly say that it is one of the worst products i have ever paid for.
      Constant and ongoing problems have long ago woken me up to the fact that i am never going to get what i paid for, or even enjoy using what is still being touted as a "Smart TV" even though after two years of disappointments though constant errors, freezing, crashing, lack of memory, lack of usable apps, lack of support (both through the product and through LG) Upgrades that dont actually upgrade anything and the ongoing lack of support for anything that is worth using through the Web Browser.
      The lastest downgrade for this TV is the lack of support for YouTube through the Web Browser. I have seen a message at the top of the page within YouTube for some months arning that LG will soon stop supporting YouTube though the Web Browser. A few weeks ago this happened literally over night. I turned my TV on and went to use YouTube only to find that it just did not load, when it does load, its is so bad that you simply can not use the site. I thought about this and why LG would do this and i honestly think that this is their attempt to fix the problem with LG TV's having so little onboard memory that their TV's can not and do not work properly while using the Web Browser for more than 20 minutes without a forced close down.
      So now they are forcing you to use the apps instead of the Web Browser and stopping support for anything that they can not monetarise through allowing the use of apps on their TV's. But the app is not stable and crashes or simply does not load, its quite ugly to use and not intuitive at all. But this is what we are now being forced to use.
      Its becomes painfully obvious very quickly that LG dont allow you to change the Web Browser that they choose, you can not download another, because they dont want you to do that and too be honest, there simply is not enough onboard memory to allow for choice.
      In conclusion, i will predict that its only a matter of time before they stop supporting the Web Browser all together and then they will have to take the word "Smart" out of all discription of their TV's.
