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.

      I have an LG OLED55C6P TV. Because of hearing difficulties, I generally use bluetooth headphones when watching the TV.  As far as I have been able to determine, there appears to be no way to use the headphones and also have the TV speakers working at the same time. This means that if I'm watching TV, no one else can watch and listen unless they have headphones.  Am I missing something?  Is there a way to have the headphones and TV speakers working at the same time?

      My new gallery series OLED TV died after less than two months. For weeks now, I have been calling LG support for help. The have created multiple repair tickets, but they have not been to get a repair technician out to fix the problem.
      LG keeps trying to outsource the repair to 3rd party service companies. Does anyone know how I can find a local tech that works for LG to come out and fix it?
      If not, what recourse do I have?
      Thank you.

      Hi,
      I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
      Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
      My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
      I tried to use (with no success):
      - Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
      - Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
      - VLC UPnP feature - same as above
      What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

      I watch a conservative news channel, channel 138, newsmax, and in the middle of a story commercials pop up and interrupt the story.
       
      I've turned off LG channels plus, and add customization, and that has done no good.  I canceled my cable, and signed up with Hulu to avoid the commercials. Now on top of regular TV commercials LG inserts its own garbage.
       
      I also understand Samsung, and Sony are doing the same thing. My assumption is whoever the IPTV provider is, they are the ones inserting the commercials, and the major TV brands use the same service for all of the TV brands.
       
      This is unacceptable. My future plan is to not buy one of these major branded TVs.  It's not bad enough that we are inundated with commercials on cable, and network TV, now there are inserting commercials on an IP stream.
       
      Disgruntled TV owner, thanks for listening.

      This is the error I'm facing when I try to launch on the LG WebOS TV Emulator as 
      ares-launch --device emulator com.yourdomain.app.firstapp On the emulator I see nothing but a blank black screen. When I run the webOS TV Emulator I can only see the TV remote control with the blank screen. I've tried using the controller to go to menu > App Manager and then launch from the installed apps but its of no luck either. I see the display on browser but not on the emulator
      I have installed this full package for windows 10. Can anyone please help me here so that I can see the display on my emulator.

      Hello,

      Hi there,. 
      It is now clear that any  OS, except android and apple,  suffers from low number of apps. 
      It is a shame to struggle with a 'named smart tv' to run a Web site or find a commonly used app! 
       
      Ok! We are stuck with this rubbish OS (bad OS due to the poor App stoee) , why LG doesn't develop an adapter to run android TV apps on the TV? Maybe after testing them, you can allow certain famous apps. Moreover, why don't they provide an easy porting tool for the developer?
      Anyway, if they don't do this, I would advise any one to buy an android TV and ignore the useless OSs such as Tiazen or Webos. 
      Regards,
