Dock goes in reverse, brings an Exhibition Enyo app to webOS third, not first

These are strange times in which we live. One month ago we were watching accomplished webOS app developer Inglorious Apps - the guy who brought us - building an app called Dock to bring Exhibition-style glanceable info to iPhone and Android users. It was weird, because unlike the previous Enyo ports to land on other platforms (), Dock was not a webOS app first. Yeah, the developer used the webOS app framework to make an app , with the though of bringing it to webOS relegated to "."

It didn't take long after our first talking about the app for that demand to be demonstrated. And by not long, we mean hours. You guys might not be many in numbers, but you're sure as heck loud. Or just skilled at badgering after years of neglect at the hands of Palm and HP. Either way, your voice was heard and that very same day Inglorious Apps announced that Dock would indeed be coming to webOS.

It took a month, but it's finally arrived. In the App Catalog for $1.43 (an odd price if we've ever seen one), essentially breaks down the individual panels of Glimpse into small glanceable bits that stream by on your TouchPad or webOS smartphone screen. We've played around with the app on both a TouchPad and a Pre3, and we've got to say, it was definitely designed for the smartphone-sized screen. Heck, that's why there's Glimpse for the TouchPad anyway - it has Exhibition Mode support too.

What all does Dock bring to the glanceable information party? Good question. How about a clock, your Facebook timeline, Google Reader headlines, selected RSS feeds, Stocks, Twitter, and the current and forecasted weather. All of these are customizable with your own accounts or inputs as appropriate, and you can even hit the Shuffle All selection to have Dock just cycle through it all at random. Dock hasn't seen enormous success in the iOS App Store or Google Play Market, but if we had to guess, it'll probably do better on webOS, thanks to both the relative lack of competition for attention in the smaller App Catalog and the near rabid appreciation webOS users have for developers that stand by the platform. If you've got a Touchstone charger, .

      I am creating a streaming application, where user can access a list of mkv files from my server, Mkv is not supported in web browsers and it is not loading properly within my webOS web app.
      I cannot modify my files to another video format.
      Is there a native player for LG WebOS that I can embed into my web application ?
      Is there any video player with web sdk to play mkv on a smart tv.
      Ps: my videos are working well on chrome, as for Firefox or Safari, it tells me that the format is not supported.

      The problem that my QNAP NAS Mediaserver disappears from the WebOS Home screen and from the Home dashboard happens irregularly and unpredictably almost daily. The only way to get it back is to reset WebOS to its initial (factory) settings. After I do that, it always reappears on the Home scree/Home dashboard. I have no idea why this happens, it even happens after I watch an hour of movie content from the NAS and then want to browse through the files on the NAS: it suddenly is not accessible anymore. I tried to tweak (a lot of) the NAS settings but nothing helps.  
      My NAS has a fixed IP in my home LAN. Is it possible to connect to it with the IP address? 
      Any other suggestions how to remedy this tedious problem are welcome!

      In the file attached is a photo of the Home dashboard with the Mediaserver present.

To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.
