This software will make your PC become a multimedia server and you can manage and watch them from your TV Smart TV through DLNA.

LG Smart Share for Windows is a multimedia content sharing application developed by LG Electronics. It allows users to effortlessly share and stream multimedia content such as photos, videos, and music from their LG devices to other compatible devices, such as smart TVs, PCs, and mobile phones, within the same network. The software aims to provide a seamless and convenient way for users to access and enjoy their media files across various devices.

Because it uses a Wi-Fi Direct (Miracast or Intel Wi-Di), you can wirelessly transmit 1080p video and high-quality audio. Also, its range of action is much larger than, for example, Bluetooth. To enjoy the benefits of Screen Share, it is necessary that both the TV and the device to be connected are compatible with this feature.
Before you begin, make sure your LG smart TV and Windows PC share the same local network, ie, are connected to the same router Internet, either by cable or Wi-Fi. This is necessary so that they can communicate properly.
If you have a computer system with Linux or iOS, we recommend the option to share files via PLEX, an application available for these systems.
