Player Setup: LG webOS

The following instructions outline the configuration process for LG webOS for Digital Signage displays.

If you have not yet added players to the Players section of your Network, please follow these instructions on Adding Players as Channel ID’s will be needed as a part of the setup process.

It is strongly recommended that you change the Admin Password on the screen to ensure the security of the device, especially if your device is not behind a firewalled.
