Question

My android phone screen is casting otherwise ok in my LG WebOS smart TV but the content apps(Zee5, VODAFONEplay, Sonyliv, Flipkart video) are not casting. Whenever I open the app and try to play a video screen casted on TV, the TV screen is only showing the phone notification bar and rest is blank. Only youtube is casting full screen as it has built in screen cast icon on the app screen itself.

 
Anyone knowing what to do may please help. Pairing is OK from TV to phone.

@Surojit Bhattacharjee I beleive that the issue is due to DRM (Digital Rights Management), that blocks Copyrighted material being outputted to external devices. The YouTube app seems to be OK and has less problems with copyright, and so has a "safe" cast option by the sound of it. Others (especially the Sony products and the others) have to make sure that users are not violating the terms of use, by blocking  outputs to "other" devices that could potentially record copyrighted material to "sell on for profit".

      The sales person in showroom pushed for LG saying it has better sound and picture richness. But obviously didn't reveal big shortcomings of non-android smart TV in today's ecosystem. This is useless as you are not having freedom to install apps of your choice from playstore. I can't even get Sonyliv. Horrible OS. Now I am trapped for years after buying this TV. Don't buy LG or other non-android TV unless you can affford to throw it in weeks. When will LG grow up?
