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

Good luck
