LG TV UF6800 Youtube hangs after playing advertisement


boggy

Question

I have LG TV UF6800. TV is working well. The youtube app had worked well until a couple month ago. The yoyube hangs very often after playing advertisement. It also hangs after playing a long video (around 30 min). By "hangs" I mean it is still there, showing the youtube UI, but we cannot play any video. Just black, staying there forever.

I am using wired network on the TV. 

I tried updating app, nothing. I googled and tried unpluging power while watching...., no help. BTW the youtube (with the same user) works well on PC and iPad.

If you think this is not LG's problem, please advise to whom I should contact.

Also happens on my UF770T.  App and OS are the latest versions.

Same problem here.

Model 49LF6300-UA

WebOS 2.2.3-178

Sofware Version 04.06.75

Started after last WebOS update. Reset TV, Reinstalled YouTube App and Reset You Tube account. Updated You Tube  App and that made it worse.

I experience similar problems on my 49UF680V.

The app started acting up around three months ago, often skipping ads during playback (which I wasn't mad at) and shortly after it started to hang either after ad playback or directly when starting video playback. Since around a week ago, I can view circa two videos until the app hangs during ad playback. After a short time, the TV shows an "Out of memory" notification and automatically reboots.

I just ordered an used chromecast for cheap until these issues are resolved :(

      I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      I want to be able to turn on my TV without it automatically launching a cable channel. ( or repeatedly asking me if I want to turn on the cable box).  Is there any way to "just' start with the home screen? Also when I've been watching something (app or cable) and go back to Home screen, it will go back to what I was watching if there is no input for a minute or so. grrrr. so annoying

      I am looking for an app that will allow me to play videos from a shared folder on another computer, something like VLC. Is there an app for the LG to do this? I haven't been able to find anything. I set up the Media Center on the other computer but it doesn't work right and can't see all the available videos. I just want to be able to browse a shared folder.

      The NEW Amazon Prime Video App update is horrible. Cannot access any content from my Shudder channel subscription. Constant errors.

      User Interface image as shown on 2021 LG TVs
      A user-friendly hub for content consumption, the modern smart TVs offer access to more movies, series, documentaries and live-streamed events than one can count. The downside to having such a wealth of content options so conveniently available is figuring out what to watch.
      To help users discover great, new content, LG continues to streamline and expand the viewing experience on its market-leading smart TVs. The company’s webOS smart TV platform is constantly evolving, growing its capabilities while simultaneously simplifying users’ path to greater viewing enjoyment.

      As part of these ongoing efforts, LG’s latest Smart TV models are the first to have an opted-in enhanced Prime Video experience, with easy access to personalized content suggestions available directly from the “Now Streaming” section on the LG TV home screen.

      This means watching a favorite show on the global streaming service is as easy as turning on the TV and heading to the “Now Streaming” section using either voice command or the Magic Remote. In addition to watching a movie or show right where they left off, users can browse Prime Video’s content recommendations on screen without having to open the Prime Video app. These recommendations reflect relevant content based on their tastes and viewing history. The TV will show the last two watched titles and a list of personalized content users might enjoy from new shows, movies or live sports.
      Pop-up notification
      The time and hassle-saving enhancement rolled out globally with a recent software update for LG’s 2021/2022 model Smart TVs. These TV owners will be alerted to the availability of the Prime Video user-experience enhancement by a pop-up notification when launching the Prime Video app and they will be able to opt in or out on the Prime Video settings page.
      Opt-in Settings
      One of the most popular streaming services on LG TVs worldwide, Prime Video can accommodate any taste or interest with its impressive selection of content. Among its expansive library of movies, TV shows, documentaries and more, are acclaimed Amazon Originals such as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Boys and Tomorrow War, as well as exclusive live sporting events like Thursday Night Football. The service is included with membership to Amazon Prime, see

      The optimized Prime Video experience on LG Smart TVs is representative of Amazon and LG’s continuing commitment to expanding and streamlining the user and viewing experience.
