simonjhogan's PLEX Client for LG Smart TV

other-third-party

#35

Инструкция:

1. Скачать архив отсюда http://plex.h3consulting.net/

2. Распаковать архив на флешку в папку lgapps/installed

3. Зайти в свой аккаунт на телевизоре

4. Вставить флешку в порт для приложений (обычно верхний)

5. Зайти в "My Apps", там справа около полосы с объёмом памяти появится 2 иконки - TV и USB. Выбрать USB

6. Должна появится иконка приложения Plex. Открыть, выбрать IP компьютера на котором стоит Plex Media Server

How to inatsll app to LG TV:

1. Download app from http://plex.h3consulting.net/

2. Created the folder structure on usb drive like this: lgapps/installed

3. Unzip archive to lgapps/installed on USB

4.  Make sure you are signed in to your Smart TV account.

5. Put USB drive into your TV
6. On remote press 'SMART'.
7. Click on 'LG Smart World' icon (bottom of screen).
8. Click on 'My Apps' icon (top of screen).
9. Click on the USB icon (top right). You should hopefully see the 'Plex Test' icon appear.
10. Click on icon and enter PMS IP address. Nb 192.168.0.123 is entered (via remote) as 192 'OK' 168 'OK' 000 'OK' 123 OK'. If the address is correct then the familiar Plex UI will appear (most noticably without artwork). Note also there is no backspace facility if you get the IP address wrong!

Thanks, but that does not work.

I have tried everything, and it does not show up on the usb when using on my LG 50LA6205

Tried unzipping and using as is, I even tried using just the files in the WebContent folder... nothing!

I have had others work, but not this one.

Every time I click OK it goes back to the original IP.

This bug (bug relating to changing PMS address) was in version 0.1 and it was fixed in version 0.2. Try install last version 0.2.01 - maybe it will work correctly.

this would be great if someone could  :)

If you use the code snippet I wrote and posted on pg 1 of this thread, it enables arrow key control on the standard remote. You can navigate to the scan/save buttons. (Works for me on my 2011 TV at any rate).

I need a dummies guide as I am not sure what I am doing. Sorry.

I would appreciate if someone could.

Well, sorry to say but this thread is created by simon for testers. If you cannot manage some easy steps then please wait until the app will be more stable.

It involves opening the file index.html and pasting in the code I linked (after line 52). However if this is not something you're comfortable doing I'd wait until Simon creates another release (this issue is apparently fixed in the working codebase), I think that will happen soon. Particularly since there are other issues with the standard remote once you get the current app running.

Thanks you've been very helpful.  :)

Hi cocute

After you have unzipped simonjhogan-plex.lg-098c3bd open it and copy just the contents (not the whole folder) of the WebContent folder to your usb folder \lgapps\installed\321123 it should then be recognised in MyApps.

I had the same problem and I just couldn't figure out why it was working for everyone else and not me, this solution worked for me.

This app is excellent great work

and a big thank you Simon from a fellow aussie

Thanks for trying to help, but still shows nothing for me.

I will just wait for an official release from someone in the app store, then it will work for everyone lol

Do u guys see the plex icon when you go to your usb? if not, u MUST create a lg account very important! and MUST sign into it, once signed in go back to my app->more->usb(top right-hand-corner) press "OK" and then u'll see the plex icon appeared and press "ok" on your standard remote to run it.

Once into 1st screen your standard remote will not be able to scan for plex network, if you don't have a magic remote to scan for plex network, use your smart phone and download the free LG TV remote from app store. open that app on your phone (make sure its run on the same wifi) to use with your lg smart tv so u can click onto scan network, wait a few mins and enjoy! don't forget to save it). hope that works for you and anyone else too. please let me know how you guys go. Thanks.

Indeed I have an account and am always signed in.

I use other apps from USB with no issues, it's only this one that does not show.

Remove any existing lgapps folder 1st on your usb, then unrar the attachment file to the root of your usb stick/hdd/etc.  and re-insert into your tv and run again. hopefully this time round it'll work. (maybe you have too many apps on your usb, scroll/page down on your tv to look for your plex icon).

Thanks, that does work but is not the same files as the op has shared in the first post of this thread.

They are pretty much the same files and do the same thing, but if u wanna use the files from the 1st post, just copy the two files from my attachment rar file and place them into the files you download from the 1st post in lgapps\installed\321123

89_148x148.png - (This will give u the plex icon on your lg smart tv under my apps)

manifest.xml - (this will allow it to run/recongize the plex app). enjoy!

I don't see any differences, but perhaps you might notice something.

1. (apps still can not resume from last movie played, have to play from the beginning every time else had to fast forward >>).

2. When click back to the original screen the cursor always start from the top of 1st movie/mp3/music folder it cannot remember the last selected movies or mp3/music file selection. very annoying when you have 100+ movies and had to scroll serverls time to get to the next unwatched movie.


#53

#54
