@Filippo Antonio Capizzi Has this ever worked before on the previous TV? Did it work n the NEW TV before you updated the firmware?

Also, are you able to test with different resolution movies, and different formats other than MKV? Does MP4 or MOV work? If all formats exhibit this issue, and ESPECIALLY if this happened after the firmware update, then raise a support ticket with your local LG country support.

Thank you @td47 for your suggestion, and sorry for the late reply.

I didn't have a previous TV, this is my first one. The firmware was updated right after unboxing the TV, so I didn't have the chance to try the movies with the previous version.

I've tried only MKV files with different codecs (h264 and h265) and resolutions (720p, 1080p, 4K), but none of them worked.

I will try with some MP4's and let you know.

Just to be sure: you're telling me that resume / fast forward should work on any file?

@Filippo Antonio Capizzi No, I am NOT saying that those useful functions SHOULD work on any file, I am just trying to get a technical "feel" for the problem you are describing, and if it INITIALLY worked when you got the TV (i.e. was the problem caused by the new firmware). Those functions will ALL depend greatly on the capabilities of the SPECIFIC player app you are using, and the good (or bad) integration of the required CODECS within it, to handle the different file types. The YOUTUBE app's job in life IS to do those things that you are trying, BUT it was designed to do just that. General basic player APPS (particularly those "standard" in-built ones in so-called "smart" TV's), might be just too basic to do that. What is the player app actually called?

      Hi,
      I'd like to easily stream/cast some movie files (.mkv, .mp4 etc...) on my Ubuntu 21.04 PC to a LG Smart TV having WebOS 4.9.x.
      Both TV and PC are connected on the same LAN network via ethernet cable!
      My router does not provide any UPnP feature!
      I tried to use (with no success):
      - Kodi - enabled UPnP/DLNA and shared my library, then right clicked on a movie and ran "Play using", selected "TV" but I was not able to see anything on my LG TV (i went to Movies and Photos and did not see any remote device or other stuff) (does this method nroamlly work? Maybe there is something wrong with my Kodi / Router configuration? What screen do I have to access on the LG TV to see the DLNA devices?)
      - Integrated Ubuntu "Media Sharing" (see https://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2020/04/home-media-server-ubuntu-2004/) - same as above, I could not see any device from the TV when this option is enabled
      - VLC UPnP feature - same as above
      What options do I have, without buying any additional device like Chromecast, Raspberry PI etc...?

      Anyone have a problem with this app running on LG 4K TV?
      iPlayer app constantly buffers or locks up
      I switch to NOW TV box (not app) & can watch  iPlayer without an issue.
      Also NETFLIX & other catch up apps  work without any buffering or locking.
      Interested to hear your thoughts....

      Is there any music app like Spotify, Tidal, Google Music, anything? How can I stream for example from my phone?

      Recently bought an LG Smart TV in Ireland. 43Nano796NE .
       
      There is a button on the remote for Google assistant. Nothing happens when it is pressed. I downloaded the ThinQ app and have paired it to the TV and Google home assistant. I can turn on off the TV via Google and at best turn on Netflix via Google . Just wondering am I missing something else here given the button on the remote doesn't do anything? There is  also a buttonn for opening up Disney plus and that doesn't open up the app. The app button for Netflix and Prime does work. Maybe a first world problem only. Apps for Ireland are not great, would love to be able to download Virgin media player and All Four.
