Kodi client on lg webos


Recommended Posts

I started building a client for Kodi that runs on Smart TV LG webos.
As a client, need a Kodi server running on local network to consume the JSON-RPC API.
Communicates through websockets.
It is being implemented in Javascript using REACT JS.
I'm looking for developers for the GUI.
Contributions are welcome!!

see the project on github:

Native Kodi has memory and storage requirements that I still believe not possible on smart tv.
Kodi client is an alternative to Plex, for example for Raspberry Pi.
Thanks anyaway.
It could run from an USB drive just like Plex alternative did before official release.

I don't know what the hell andreluigo is talking about, but please don't take it as other than just his personal opinion. I would love a client for WebOS, who the hell would want full Kodi on a TV?

He even compares Plex and SmartShare (that crap, really?) to Kodi, Plex is very limited if you don't pay what they want (and lately they have been adding useless stuff and taking a lot of useful features, just look at the Plex subreddit). SmartShare is, well, not good at all.

Please, continue working on this, I'm (and a bunch of other people that I just told about your app) eager to see this finished.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the support and encouragement!

I resumed work with a new approach.

Now I use the recommended library and used by LG in its native applications: EnactJS. See:  and samples: 

Please follow my project on github, and if you can contribute in any way, thank you very much.

I not even will waste my time and patience answering how you deserve.

Stop talking  shits and try to be more polite if you "don't know what the hell" other people are talking about.

If you don't know something and yet still wants to show yourself as a big wise, just makes you the biggest dumb.

I will see if I can commit anything but I'm not experienced with WebOS at all so I hope someone else can chime in and help. Thanks for all your work!

I mean, what the hell were you talking about?

What is, by your definition, a "native app" and a "client"?

Plex WebOS app is a client as it needs a server that you host somewhere else to serve you with all the media through your network, you don't install Plex server on the TV and then attach all the drives containing your media (be movies, tv shows, music, etc) to the TV and start scanning them, that's just stupid, where would the app store all the cached content? What if you need to transcode because the TV lacks support for a lot of codecs? The TV doesn't have enough hardware power to do all that, that needs to be done somewhere else... yeah, you got it, on the damn SERVER. An that's not all, you even compared Plex to Kodi, they both are different, let alone comparing it with SmartShare. With Plex you have to pay to get more than one user, Plex transcodes if it isn't supported by the client hardware. Kodi doesn't need you to pay to use anything, you can even use Jellyfin together with Kodi, Kodi alone doesn't transcode. And I wont even talk about SmartShare.

I'm sorry if you can't handle adult talking and you need me to sugar coat words for you but I'm not going to do it, sorry pal. That's just how life is.

And the same applies to Kodi, why in the hell would someone want the full app on the TV? It doesn't make any sense. I haven't seen a full app of Emby nor Jellyfin anywhere (not only on WebOs) too. They all are clients.

I just can't picture a possible reason to need the full app on the TV, please enlighten me.

Hey there, just curious about the state of this project? Kodi on WebOS would be so great!

Thanks!

Hey,

I had some compatibility problems with REACTJS and ENACTJS, with the older versions of Webos, for example 3.0.

I had to abandon these frameworks and rewrite much of the code in pure Javascript. For this reason the progress of the project is a little slow.

I hope to launch a functional version in the second half of this year.

I appreciate the remembrance and encouragement.

      Company Showcases Breadth of Technological Capabilities at
      Global Communications Conference in Seoul

      SEOUL, May 17, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is showcasing a diverse range of innovative, new mobility technologies, including connected vehicle solutions leveraging 6G and AI, at the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC) 2022. Open from May 16-20 at COEX Convention & Exhibition Center in Seoul, South Korea, this year’s ICC adopts the theme of ‘Intelligent Connectivity for Smart World’ and features a hybrid format combining physical exhibits and in-person attendance with virtual content and online participation.
      One of the IEEE Communications Society’s two flagship conferences, ICC typically attracts around 2,000 attendees from over 70 countries. The annual event offers exciting keynotes and robust technical paper sessions as well as informative and engaging tutorials, workshops and industry discussions.
      In keeping with ICC 2022’s intelligent connectivity theme, LG is showcasing its OMNIPOD concept car; a fully autonomous, connected vehicle that can act as an extension of one’s living or workspace. LG OMNIPOD employs the unique, floor-to-ceiling Meta-environment Screen and a host of other advanced technologies to adapt to passengers’ unique needs. Able to serve as practically any kind of space, from an office or recording studio to a video-editing workroom or even a lounge, the OMNIPOD is a future mobility solution that completely reimagines the in-vehicle experience.
      Additionally, LG is displaying its world-class 6G communications technologies, including Full Duplex Radio transmission and reception tech that maximizes frequency efficiency, and a power amplifier device, jointly developed with the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI), for the wireless transmission and reception of 6G THz data. The company is also demonstrating its Soft V2X (with V2X standing for “vehicle to everything”) smartphone solution, which enables a vehicle to communicate in real-time with nearby vehicles, pedestrians and infrastructure to create a safer driving environment. The company is also presenting its on-device AI chip, which can be applied to various home appliances providing a smart life experience.
      “As the automotive industry is transitioning to a software-enabled ecosystem, LG is proactively developing next-generation technologies,” said Kim Byoung-hoon, CTO at LG Electronics. “Based on its advanced 6G and AI tech, LG will continue to strengthen its capabilities in various fields such as 6G communications, smart mobility, metaverse and robotics to take the customer experience to new heights.”
      Named an IEEE Fellow last year in recognition of his research achievements and expertise in the field of communications, the CTO will be delivering a keynote titled ‘Technology Advances in Connectivity and Software Defined Architecture for Smart Mobility’ at ICC on May 17. Mr. Kim will introduce the company’s direction regarding the transition to the software defined vehicle (SDV), as well as its latest solutions and services based on SDV and smart mobility technology.

      I've got my ThinQ and Google Home apps and Google Home speakers set up to turn off my LG C1.  But they won't turn it on, I guess because the TV isn't listening for commands when off.   I expected that enabling these Settings|General|Devices|TV Management|Quick Start+ Settings|General|Devices|External Devices|TV On With Mobile|Turn on via Wi-Fi would do it, but it did not.
      OMG I just discovered that Alexa turns on the TV...and I never even had to open let alone set it up in the Alexa app!
