Many customers waiting for Mx player will come in LG web os platform but no any information why ? LG web os is better but why is getting late 

Hi @Binod Kumar

If you want MX Player for webOS you will need to get the maker (not LG they do not write the apps for the platform) to produce it.  Sorry I obviously did not make this clear enough in my previous post.

The LG team should junk their webos as it is very restrictive and adopt a platform which will cater to all apps. If a customer is not satisfied he will never buy a LG television again. I feel better options are available today

Use internet web browser and go to mx player web page. Then steam it.

No it will not play because on webOS, forced TV mode on it's OS prvents mxplayer from playing. This cannot be changed unless you jailbreak OS.

I was planning to buy a new smart TV of a higher screen size and I have decided I will not buy LG or Samsung that have proprietary OS like webOS or Tizen. VU would be good idea and I will examine the OS of other brands too. No more buying TV's with proprietary OS. This is the 2nd time I am moving away from LG. Earlier I junked their Washing machine as their franchisee service centres are frauds and change even good parts. and the washing machine was tearing clothes.

I fully agree with you, totally disappointed of buying LG tv, one mistake that wont happen again.

      LG's webOS 6.0 smart TVs have a new UI, NFC-equipped remote
      The new smart TV software from LG also has more voice commands for use with Alexa or Google Assistant

      Seven years after introducing webOS as the platform for its Smart TV lineup, LG is introducing version 6.0 with a new look and feel for its 2021 4K and 8K TVs. The old blade lineup of apps is gone, with a more modern tile-based layout. LG Home Entertainment president Park Hyoung-sei calls this “the most significant update since we first introduced webOS in 2014.”

      An upgraded version of its ThinQ AI has more voice command control than ever whether you’re using Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. For traditional control, this year’s edition of its Magic Remote is a bit more standard than some of the previous versions, but also includes NFC for the first time, which allows users to share content from phone to TV (and back) simply by tapping it.
      The new software includes Magic Explorer, which can pull up related content about actors, locations and items of interest for “select broadcast channels, while Next Picks analyzes viewing preferences to suggest things you might like. There’s no word on opt-in or opt-out preferences for these settings, but we’ll ask about them as the show progresses next week. It’s also unclear whether the updates will extend to older TVs in LG’s lineup, one way or another, the old HP software platform is still rolling on, powering new OLEDs and LCDs for another year.

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,

      I am looking for an app that will allow me to play videos from a shared folder on another computer, something like VLC. Is there an app for the LG to do this? I haven't been able to find anything. I set up the Media Center on the other computer but it doesn't work right and can't see all the available videos. I just want to be able to browse a shared folder.

      I have an LG-43UN73006LC purchased in the UK - but it does not have a My5 app for watching Channel 5 related programmes  in catch up.
      Channel 5 is one of the main 5 programme channels here in the UK - so why no support from LG?
      How can they call this a Smart TV without support for the basic UK Channels?
      Even my ancient Humax box had My5 app
