Install on LG

When adding the ForkPlayer app, take into account the year of manufacture of the device and the system installed on it. For LG TVs manufactured since 2010 with WebOS or Netcast OS, these instructions will work:

  • Open the main menu.
  • Go to the Smart TV Internet connection settings section.
  • Select “DNS Server”.
  • Enter the value 85.17.30.89.
  • Save your configuration.

If after entering this DNS ForkPlayer does not appear in the list of applications, try turning SmartTV off and then on again. Or specify a different address:

Different applications are installed depending on the address. If 85.17.30.89 adds ForkPlayer directly, then 217.79.190.156 puts unofficial store ForkStore, from which you have to download the player itself.

If you set up ForkPlayer on LG TVs with WebOS or Netcast 2.0-4.5, then follow the steps below:

  • Open the TV settings and select the “Network Connection” tab.
  • Select the method used to connect your device to the internet.
  • Select an access point or network from the list.
  • Click on “Advanced Settings” button.
  • Select the manual DNS input tab.
  • Enter 46.36.222.114.

You may see an error message on the screen when connecting to DNS. Don’t worry. Wait a few minutes and reconnect. If error message appears again, please turn Smart TV off and on again. To run the application after the connection is established, open the “Premium” tab and select vTuner widget, Russia TV or First Automotive.

ForkPlayer can also be installed on LG from a flash drive, but in this case its functionality will be significantly limited, and in order to expand it you will have to install the RemoteFork program and then activate it on the TV.

Setup on Samsung

Owners of Samsung TVs with Smart TV can also take advantage of the ForkPlayer app to add some free multimedia entertainment. To do so:

  • Type your account name “develop”. The password should appear automatically. Select “Login.

  • Enter address 46 for synchronization.36.222.114 (or 85.17.30.89).
  • Press “Ok” and wait until app synchronization is completed.

After completing the synchronization you need to close the Smart TV and then turn it on again after a while. When you turn it on again, you’ll see several ForkPlayer apps at the bottom. Once you launch it, you will get a list of sites and services from which you can play videos on your TV for free.

For clarity, here is a video that will help you to understand where to press and what to choose.

The way to install the application may vary depending on the series and even models of Samsung TVs. For example, on Samsung UE40D6100SW the password is not added automatically when you enter the account name “develop”. If you faced such a situation, try to enter the value “111111” in the password field.

On other models instead of the “Tools” button you need to press the blue “D” button, then go to the “Development” section and follow the above instructions. In the M series of 2017 TVs, the procedure has a different procedure altogether.

  • Open the TV menu.
  • Go to “Settings.
  • Press the up button on the remote control and select “Network Status”.
  • Move the cursor to the left and open “IP Settings.
  • Set your IP address to be obtained automatically. If this option is originally selected, do not change it.
  • Go down to the DNS settings and select “Manual entry.
  • Enter address 85.17.30.89. Between the numbers, press the right arrow to move to the next block.
  • Press “OK.”. Wait until reconnection is complete.

Important: This method does not work on stitched routers provided by ISPs. Also, your service provider may block you from changing DNS, so you might not be able to. But usually there is no problem with the setting.

To access ForkPlayer, you must launch the DivanTV app. By default, icons for most sites are off. To add them:

  • Press the red “A” button on the remote control.
  • Go to “Settings”.
  • Select “Start Menu Settings.”.
  • Click on the widgets to bring them to the start screen.
  • Go back and select any application to test ForkPlayer.

Just to understand, here is another video where a user shows that this method works.

What can go wrong. errors after installation

Despite the popularity and stability of the fork player for LG TV, errors can occur after installing it. They are related to the very technology of IP television, which is considered new. Let’s find out how to eliminate them.

Black screen

Sometimes a black screen appears after the settings when playing any IPTV. This is a software failure, which also causes loss of volume. Appears due to:

  • Owner of TV opened a hidden playlist or inactive IPTV. About 1000 pages are blocked every day, so before launching it is worth going to “Settings” and see the status of the connection.
  • Wrong player format selected. Enough to go to “Settings” and change the type of player. Then, refresh the page with services.

Large number of blocked pages caused by a huge amount of created video on IPTV. Every day people take various recordings, trying to illegally broadcast them through interactive TV. Such resources are blocked.

Advice. In order not to get to the blocked tabs, it is better to use the “General rating” tab, where the list of working channels is placed.

Black screen instead of video

Appears while watching media content. Reasons. there are codecs on the page that do not play the TV. Also, the wrong format of the player, which is changed in the settings. Often a simple reboot of the device helps.

Important! Forkplayer on LG is a utility to help open a larger list of commands and increase the functionality of Smart TV. It does not affect the internal settings of the “smart” TV. Therefore, when software crashes occur, it is worth checking the basic parameters of Smart TV, rather than trying to immediately remove the application, blaming the problems on it
