Tutorial About Streaming ISO File on LG TV via Plex

There’s really nothing that makes us happier than Plex being made available on more devices (well, except maybe a nice cold micro-brew on a hot summer day). We love our Roku channel, Plex comes on every LG Smart TV sold, and an increasing number of DLNA devices can talk to our server as well. If you are like me you’ve got a LG Smart TV that like watching movies on it, just read on the article. Because I will share my experience about playing ISO image on LG TV via Plex. You must know that ISO can’t be supported by LG TV and Plex natively. So this sharing maybe a little valuable in my opinion.       

Convert ISO to LG TV supported format

Get Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate  freely on PC (Mac users should use Mac version).

This software can turn ISO image to wide range of formats video, like MP4, H.265, M3U8, MKV, AVI, MOV, M4V, etc. Especially, it has a profile named “TVS” where listing the optimized preset format for LG TV, Samsung TVPanasonic TV and Sony TV. This is very important for those who are not familiar with the TV spec. So you can easily transform ISO to LG TV supported format with it for playing via Plex.

Add Plex to LG Smart TV with PLAYz

If you are using DLNA to stream your Plex library and although it worked, you are left. Now LG Smart TV owners can rejoice as PLAYz has made its way into the LG Smart World Market.

It doesn’t get much easier than clicking on the “Smart” button on your LG TV, navigating to the Smart World section, locating PLAYz in the market and then purchasing it and installing the application. After installation is complete, run the application and it will ask you for the IP of the Plex Media Server, there is also the option to scan your network which in my case worked like a charm. Once the IP is populated, just hit save and your off and running with access to your Plex libraries.

When you have installed Plex on your LG TV, and succeeded in transform ISO to LG TV supported video, now you should be able to play ISO image on LG TV via Plex.
