WebOS photo app

Recommended Posts

I like this app because I can simultaneously stream music and show photos from my DLNA server.  However the photo display part of the app has annoying limitations. It is unable to traverse the subdirectories of the server or randomize the photo selection. So I went to all the trouble of creating links to 42,000 images in a single directory and randomizing the file names. Now the new limitation is will only display the first 200 images and loop back to the first. All the files are viewable as thumbnails in the directory and if I select image 201 it will start there and select the sequential list of the next 200.  Any work arounds available for this?

Es wird wohl nie einen Player geben, der wenigstens halbwegs grundsätzliche Player-Funktionen hat. Der Support meinte zu meinem Vorschlag doch tatsächlich, dass man nichts machen könne wenn die App-Entwickler keinen zur Verfügung stellen. Man meinte tatsächlich externe Entwickler und kam gar nicht auf die  Idee, dass man sowas vielleicht mal selber anbieten könnte...

Keine Random-Funktion, keinerlei Einstellungen zur Anzeigedauer Übergang oder überhaupt irgendetwas, kein Weg eine Cloud einzubinden, nur manuell ausgewählte Bilder, ohne jede Einbeziehung irgendeiner Ordnerstruktur.

Man kann das gar nicht fassen, angeblich die besten Fernseher und dann dieser Software-Fail, seit so vielen Jahren. Verbesserungsvorschläge werden, siehe oben, glatt abgeblockt. 


Google Translate:

There will probably never be a player that has at least halfway basic player functions. The support actually said to my suggestion that nothing could be done if the app developers didn't provide one. They actually meant external developers and it never occurred to them that they might be able to offer something like this themselves...

No random function, no transition settings or anything at all, no way to integrate a cloud, only manually selected images, without any involvement of any folder structure.

You can't believe it, supposedly the best televisions and then this software failure for so many years. Suggestions for improvement are flatly blocked, see above.

      How to download  Disney hotstar app in LF6500 webos smart TV?
    • By Julio Henrique Morimoto
      I've had an LG 47LB6500 for about five months now. I love the TV and it's great. Except one thing that I find irritating is a constant AV input popup that keeps reappearing over, and over, and over.
      While watching any content from any input, the popup appears.
      link hidden, please login to view.  
      The only device plugged to the TV is an HDMI Sky HDTV Set Top Box, and there is nothing plugged into any AV input. WebOS seems to enter some variable loop, displaying several of these popups in sequence. Often, the number of popups is such, that the TV will freeze trying to show all of them. I can only assume a lot of its CPU is being used to render them. The TV will become unresponsive until all popups disappear. The annoyance may last a couple of minutes, but it happens everytime the TV is turned back on.
      From the input configuration screen, I can see the AV input is active. .
      Once it's removed, the popups are gone. But once the TV is turned off and back on, WebOS will scan for devices and these empty AV inputs are back on the list... and the parade of popups will follow.
      As a user, I have to consder this a bug. And it's a very irritating one. These popups cover subtitles and seem to show up minutes after the TV is turned on. Please provide a fix with a firmware update or, at least, provide a workaround to make it stop.
      Kind regards!

      When I open the DSTV Now app on my lg tv I get the error “We’re sorry Something went wrong. Please try again.” 
      I have re installed the app, checked for firmware updates and even reset TV but the error keeps on appearing. 
      Any suggestions on how to fix this? Is it a tv issue or is it the app which is faulty?
