PreCentral: Open up a local HTML file with Universe Browser


Recommended Posts

Universe DropdownDespite the fact that webOS and its apps are built using web technologies, there is actually no native way to open up a local html file on webOS phones. You can download an .html or .htm file and edit it with the Internalz Pro text editor, but you can't actually view it in the browser. While this functionality has finally been added to the TouchPad, the only way to do this on webOS phones is using a third party application such as Universe Web Browser by OpenMobl Systems. Once you have an html file on your device, you just need to:

  1. Open up Universe
  2. from the top-left and select "Open File..." (you can also O).
  3. Find the file you want to open and tap on it. If there is a long list of files, you can also type-to-search to narrow down your results.
  4. A new card will open with you file in all its HTML glory

is available in the webOS App Catalog for $2.99 and is compatible with all webOS devices running webOS 1.4.5 or higher (although not currently available for the Pre3)

      Hi there,
       
      So VLC (via DLNA) does not see LG TV webOS as renderer option.
      Even Windows 7 (via Explorer / Windows Media Player) sees it.
       
      What's special about LG TV webOS DLNA implementation that VLC does not see it?
       
      Thanks,
       
      PS: Some other related posts on this.

      Hi
      i am owning a LG-LB670V.
      The TV started to power on only sometimes but is now not powering on at all.
      Once i plug the power cable the front red led is blinking 8 times (the pauses between the blink is not always the same).
      Is anything i can verify/do myself before bringing it to a repair shop ?
      Rm: i tried already with another power socket and by pluggin it directly to it.
      tx!
      Regards
      Syldev
