Smartshare

Question

I have installed smartshare on my PC.

When I connect to it with my LG TV Smartshare, all I see are the movie names.

Does smartshare support movie info such as from IMDB or any other site and if so, how do I get it to access the info?

      Hi everyone,
      I'm interested in the OLED BX. I would like to know if it is compatible with a 5TB HDD (to be connected and fed through one of the TV USB port).
      LG manuals recommend to connect up to 2TB storage HDDs but don't really state that higher capacity devices are not expected to work.
      Then, I'm not sure how are things with DTS support. It seems that DTS decoding is no longer supported on the 2020 tv sets. But LG web page (updated 08/22/2020) titled "Support Video Playback File Type & Codec" still claims that "TV supports DTS audio codec when USB/HDMI video file playback offers it".
      Can any of you shed some light on these ones?
      Thank you so much.

      Hello,
      It would be a great addition if OLED TVs had more options for subtitles color: like a dark gray, a very dark gray and maybe a transparency setting also. As it currently stands the subtitles ruin the watching experience a bit because they're too bright on HDR content :( The gray option nearly identical to white.
      Also support for more subtitle formats such as PGS would be great, it would remove the need to have an external device for video playback and improve the overall experience.
      Regards
      Luís

      I discovered that my LG SmartShare app could not play FLAC or M4A audio files natively from my DLNA server, so I decided to enable transcoding on the server to present MP3/WAV resources in addition to the native stream. However, the SmartShare app still doesn't display those files when browsing for audio, and I am trying to determine why.
      And now, the extreme technical detail:
      I have a shell utility, upnp-browse.sh to make HTTP calls to my DLNA server, emulating the types of calls that LG SmartShare would make:
      #!/bin/sh curl -s -d @- -H 'Content-Type: text/xml; charset="utf-8"' -H 'SOAPAction: #Browse' http://host/path/to/DLNA \ | xmllint --xpath '////Result/text()' - \ | recode html..utf8 \ | xml_pp The curl call makes a HTTP POST request with the data from stdin, which would have similar content to the following:
      <?xml version="1.0"?> <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" s:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"> <s:Body> <u:Browse xmlns:u="urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:serviceType:v"> <ObjectID>ID_PARENT</ObjectID> <BrowseFlag>BrowseDirectChildren</BrowseFlag> </u:Browse> </s:Body> </s:Envelope> The call to curl then yields an XML Response similar to the following:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" s:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"><s:Body><u:BrowseResponse xmlns:u="urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:ContentDirectory:1"><Result><DIDL-Lite xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:upnp="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/upnp/" xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/DIDL-Lite/" xmlns:dlna="urn:schemas-dlna-org:metadata-1-0/"> <item id="ID_FILE" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1"><dc:title>Title</dc:title><upnp:class>object.item.audioItem.musicTrack</upnp:class><dc:creator>Creator</dc:creator><upnp:artist>Artist</upnp:artist><res size="######" duration="H:MM:SS.###" bitrate="1022868" sampleFrequency="44100" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/x-flac:*">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.ext</res><res duration="H:MM:SS.###" bitrate="176400" sampleFrequency="44100" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/L16;rate=44100;channels=2:DLNA.ORG_PN=LPCM;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/LPCM/####.ext</res><res duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/MP3/####.ext</res></item><container id="ID_FOLDER" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1" searchable="1" childCount="#"><dc:title>folder name</dc:title><upnp:class>object.container.storageFolder</upnp:class><upnp:storageUsed>-1</upnp:storageUsed></container></DIDL-Lite></Result> <NumberReturned>2</NumberReturned> <TotalMatches>2</TotalMatches> <UpdateID>3</UpdateID></u:BrowseResponse></s:Body></s:Envelope> Then the calls to xmllint, recode, and xml_pp take this data and extract the data from the Result node and format it for readability, yielding an output similar to:
      <DIDL-Lite xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/DIDL-Lite/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:dlna="urn:schemas-dlna-org:metadata-1-0/" xmlns:upnp="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/upnp/"> <item id="ID_FILE" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1"> <dc:title>Title</dc:title> <upnp:class>object.item.audioItem.musicTrack</upnp:class> <dc:creator>Creator</dc:creator> <upnp:artist>Artist</upnp:artist> <res bitrate="1022868" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/x-flac:*" sampleFrequency="44100" size="######">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.ext</res> <res bitrate="176400" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/L16;rate=44100;channels=2:DLNA.ORG_PN=LPCM;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000" sampleFrequency="44100">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/LPCM/####.ext</res> <res duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/MP3/####.ext</res> </item> <container childCount="#" id="ID_FOLDER" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1" searchable="1"> <dc:title>folder name</dc:title> <upnp:class>object.container.storageFolder</upnp:class> <upnp:storageUsed>-1</upnp:storageUsed> </container> </DIDL-Lite> Note with the sample file (item node), it contains three res nodes. The DLNA client (LG SmartShare) should select the data from the res node for the format it supports, and allow for selection of the item, but when I browse in the container which contains the item, LG SmartShare doesn't show it.
      For native MP3 files, SmartShare will show and play those items. I can provide output for native MP3 items, as well as OGG or MP4/M4A files if those would help, though they all look fairly similar. However, for native MP3 files, the first res node has a slightly different set of DLNA flags:
      <res bitrate="128000" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=01;DLNA.ORG_CI=0;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01700000000000000000000000000000" sampleFrequency="44100" size="######">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.mp3</res> Is my server serving something incorrectly, does SmartShare just not support multiple res nodes, or have I overlooked something?

      Hi All,
       
      I recently bought a LG Smart TV with WebOS (42LB6500) and would like to connect to my external hard disk connected over network. Here is how my home network and devices are setup.
       
      I have a high speed broadband that comes to my WiFi router (D-Link DSL 2750U) with USB support for External HDD. I have connected my Seagate Ex.HDD to this router and I am able to access the drive over WiFi on my smartphone and computer using the network path \\192.168.1.1\... Once connected I am able to use it similar to any mount location, i.e., read/write files, play media, etc., I want to do similarly with my TV, I would like to use this connected Ex. HDD as any other location and would like to achieve following two things at the least without any additional hardware Play media files on this HDD (very very important) Use the HDD as recording device for timeshift/live pause feature (important)  
      Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Regards,
      Rukmaj

      I installed a few apps trying to get Casting to work that didn't work properly and I can't find anyway to uninstall them. My TV doesn't seem to have edit mode perhaps because I have had it a few years (pre-2018 some when- possibly its 10 years old or more as I can't remember when I got it). Anyone know how I can uninstall them?
