LG Webos Smart tv

Description

My old tv setup: Raspberry Pi running osmc, worked perfectly with Yatse allowing me to stream videos from 3rd party apps.

I've not got a new LG Smart Tv with WebOS and have retired the raspberry pi. My aim was to stream videos from my phone direct to LG TV.

The LG tv shows up in Yatse as a network player but when I tell a video to play with 'Yaste Network Player' nothing happens.

I've got it working with bubbleupnp but I much prefer Yaste and I have already paid for the unlocked version so don't want to switch.

What do you try to play? This url is secured so your TV can't play it.

I don't see how bubble could bypass that security.

I don't see how bubble could bypass that security.

Any video app, like YouTube or crunchyroll so url shouldn't be secured. If I select "play to media centre" it plays the video fine on my kodi box though its on its last legs.

Does yatse work with LG smart TV, as I'm sure I read somewhere that it wasn't supported. Hope this is wrong though.

Thanks for your help.

Well your question means nothing, works with is like asking if a car can circulate.

Yes most car can circulate on most road, but you can't take some cars everywhere.

Yatse can stream many things to many things, but for example Youtube it can only to Kodi as it's against TOS to extract the data url and stream it.
If other apps does that they play with their place on Play Store I don't.

Your logs shows trying to play a protected url, so for this logs the answer is no Yatse can't make protected url unprotected.

Yatse can stream your local device media to your Tv if your TV supports the Codecs.

Okay thanks, that makes sense.

So does youtube have some sort of copyright exception that allows streaming to kodi? If yes, is kodi the only exception, as in if I got a chromecast would it work for what I'm wanting? Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Well actually Kodi have no exception, the addon does break Youtube TOS and is illegal in many countries. Would be fun to know what Google Youtube team think about it.

Yatse is more or less clean as it just sends to Kodi the urls and ids of things in Youtube it does not break the TOS even if well I'm aware Kodi on it's end will.

A chromecast would work as youtube does support it directly, but Yatse still could not stream youtube to it legally.

I still think Kodi on a rpi3 with libreelec is a way better solution than Chromecast as can play a lot more things.

Thanks for the advice, I've been happy with my rp1 so would be happy to invest in a rp3 as it's not just youtube I use with yatse.

I had hoped to consolidate my devices but it looks like that will never happen.

This case can be closed, thanks for your help.

Well currently there's no perfect way to manage everything as Kodi is lacking transcoding and some features in it's API.

But as a player under the TV it's currently what can play the most things in the best ways.
