I have been dealing with Jellyfin and streaming for a while.

Jellyfin is the volunteer-built media solution that puts you in control of your media. Stream to any device from your own server, with no strings attached. Your media, your server, your way.

I use a LG Smart TV for this and have various problems and questions about this Smart TV software. But according to a search, LG Smart TV seems to be off-topic here. There is no tag and very few questions.

Where can questions about proprietary Smart TV be asked?

Example questions


When I stream from Jellyfin via DLNA to LG smart TV I get this error with very many videos:

this file cannot be recognized. do you want to play the next file

When I watch the same video in the web browser of LG smart TV, the playback works fine. The codec, the format is supported by the LG smart TV, but why does it not work via DLNA?

2) In the media player of LG smart TV I can make settings, but unfortunately they are always lost, ie are not persistent. How can I save these media player settings persistent.
