Recently played video files


Question

I play video files from a USB stick via the Photos and Videos app - is there any way to show which files have been played most recently? I generally watch downloaded series but tend to forget which episode I watched last!

I have been watching video files for 3 years now on my LG and have not found a way to do that either. I am interested in this subject also. BTW I also forget sometimes which episode I watched  last and would like to find a way for the OS to delete a file.

@Rod Roderick For external media sources, I don't think there is a way to do this, as the TV has no way of indexing and detecting/remembering Viewed Date, or partially viewed etc. The scheduled recordings to an external USB HDD drive via Time Machine II MIGHT show this, BUT I have never found that to be very smart as regards programme files naming (especially if started early compared with the TV GUIDE names/times). The interface is very clunky, and far inferior to external PVR boxes like Foxtel or Sky, or FETCH Mighty.

It is possble that the PLEX TV client might help, but you will need to set up a NAS to hold your recordings, and have PLEX index them using a PLEX Server.

      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....

      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.
