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.

      I just purchased the LG UHD 43UP76 advertised as real 4k however the YouTube App is running at 1080p.  Which means 4k content is downsampled to 1080p then reupsampled to fit the 4k pixel grid and the image quality is awful.
      i assume WebOS runs at 1080p and simply upscales to 4k on low end 4k TVs, this same with high end TVs??
