I use BT Headphone with LG OLED C1 TV Webos 6. It would be nice if I could also see its battery level next to volume level on the screen
By Max Overpower
When playing files using the built-in media player on the LG C1, webOS 6, the support for AV1 and any kind of 7.1 audio is really lackluster:
In particular, when playing AV1 videos encoded using aomenc (the official AOM encoder) with the setting --enable-keyframe-filtering=2, there is a 10-15 second video freeze when starting playback and when seeking. The audio plays immediately from the moment where the video will eventually un-freeze and sync up. This encoder settings does universally mess with seeking, to some extent, particularly limiting seeking to each keyframe/GOP, but to mess up playback THAT much is not seen in any other mobile, desktop, or TV media player. This seriously needs fixing.
And another similarly atrocious flaw of the player, is that files with 7.1 audio do not play at all. I do not have a surround system, but it is expected that surround audio files are downmixed to your current audio setup, which does happen with 5.1 audio, but for whatever reason, if there is any 7.1 track in the file - it simply will not play. Which, again, is a behavior I have not seen on any other TV media player.
Lastly, PGS subtitle format is not supported by the media player, and such subtitles will not show up in the list. Which again just seems like laziness, though it's not as major of an issue.

Today’s enlightened consumers are far more likely to shop brands that share their desire to help protect the planet and create a sustainable future. LG Electronics, long at the forefront of adopting environmentally responsible practices, continues to innovate for better lifestyle today and a better world tomorrow.
Most representative of these efforts are the company’s soundbars. Greener at every stage of the product lifecycle, LG’s premium sound solutions employ reused and easily recyclable materials, consume less power during usage than many competing products and have been shipping in innovative, eco-conscious packaging since last year.
Every 2021 LG Soundbar product features a durable, sturdy inner casing constructed from recycled plastic with some models sporting an attractive jersey fabric covering made from recycled PET bottles.1 LG uses an estimated total of 1.5 million 500 millimeter PET bottles per year to create the chic fabric for its soundbars, a stylish way to repurpose what is often discarded.2
For the packaging of its eco-minded soundbars, LG uses molded pulp made with recycled paper and cardboard instead of EPS foam and plastic which are difficult to break down and can further pollute the environment by off-gassing. By switching to molded pulp, LG is reinforcing its commitment to the planet and lowering the use of EPS foam by 250 tons annually. Using recycled plastics in every 2021 LG Soundbar allows the company to reduce plastic waste to the tune of approximately 300 tons per year.
Thanks to LG’s thoughtful design and advanced manufacturing processes, these soundbars deliver a minimized carbon footprint with the benefit of easier recycling and less CO2 emissions. As such, LG’s 2021 soundbars recently received the Product Champion Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a special accolade bestowed on the company for demonstrating significant environmental, social and economic outcomes that surpass the requirements of the EPA’s Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) Electronics Challenge.3
The 2022 LG Soundbar lineup boasts an even greater focus on sustainability than last year’s impressive range. Most new soundbars from LG have earned SGS Eco-Product recognition for their minimal environmental impact, confirmation that LG Soundbars are the responsible choice when it comes to high quality audio solutions. What’s more, the newest soundbars contain parts fabricated from recycled plastic resin and has been validated by UL’s Environmental Claim Validation Procedure (ECVP), while featuring polyester jersey fabric made from recycled materials that meets the Global Recycled Standard (GRS).4
LG’s 2022 soundbars are also ENERGY STAR® certified thanks to their minimal and efficient use of power. By maximizing energy efficiency, products bearing the ENERGY STAR logo can help consumers play a part in protecting the environment.
So whether it’s soundbars, TVs, washing machines or ovens, consumers can be confident that LG is fully dedicated to delivering sustainable innovations that make life better now and well into the future.
