Question

The native player is a bit primitive. You can better use a third party player like Servio, Plex or others.

Self I use the Plex player on the TV and a Plex server on my computer. Works like a charm.

I cannot mount a server since I don't even have an ethernet cable or decent wi-fi speed. Is there a player with enough codecs that lets me pick a video source from my external HDD and play it? I need a player that just werks, not a server

I am not aware of any other native video player on the LG TV. There are a few things you can do:

  • Invest in a ethernet cable and connect the TV to you local network / computer
  • Convert the movie to a format the LG TV

  • Buy a Android TV box that can play your movie and connect it to your TV.

Good luck

      Hotstar app in my LG C7 is really slow.. is there any way to fix

      It is now 2020, and the WebOS browser in LG Smart TVs (which I believe is Chromium-based) is still massively out of date and doesn't work properly with a ton of websites!
      The main problem is actually very simple. The browser doesn't support EMCAScript 2015 or ES6.
      Basically, translated from nerd speak, it doesn't work properly with modern code using new features created since 2015, so any newer websites will break unless they've been written to be compatible with ancient browsers and OSes.
      This should not be the case on a TV made in the current year. It should be running an up-to-date web browser, if not for convenience, then for SECURITY reasons as well!

      Hi, just bought a new LG OLED and pretty fast noticed that I`ve now chance to change the wallpapers ?!?

      Really pretty strange - even the smallest smartphone offers such a feature. The TV has enough USB interfaces - why is it not able to customize this by an own set of pictures ?

      Can`t be that big rocket science to implement this , especially for such an expensive device this should be a standard feature !!!

      Or did I  miss something in the settings of the TV ?
