    Hi,

    I suspect this is simply a limitation of the TV. Many Smart TV's have issues with HLS streams, or even Flash streams unless of a particular version etc. Does your TV have an App Store? There may be an app available that will playback HLS streams. The SDK for LG Smart TV's do mention HLS as a protocol that was added for developers to use.

    This page says that WebOS (which it appears is what LG uses for their Smart TV) can play HLS with certain caveats. Maybe check your [wowza-install]/logs/ access and error files to see if anything is returned back when trying to stream to your TV. If so please post them here.

    Hi Paul,
    i think LG smart tv model 2012 & 2013 not run WebOS, it run on NetCast.
    LG with WebOS can play all my HLS Stream.
    please see log report.

    Hi,

    Do you ever get a "play" event in your logs. Or any indication that it's streaming at all? The few lines shown just show the stream terminating. The Netcast SDK apparently says HLS streams are compatible, so I can't really say what the problem is. Could be some form of DRM on the TV, which is not unusual to find on such devices....
