How to get LG TV to play mov on USB/DLNA Server

Can LG TV play mov files on USB/DLNA Server?

For Apple fans and cool home theaters lovers, watching as many hit movies in mov format on LG TV as they want in the comfort of their home on the day off couldn't be happier. Actually, MOV represents Apple QuickTime movie which is a compressed multimedia format and very popular in Apple products like QuickTime, iPhone, iPad. However, it has come to light that LG OLED/4K/3D/LED/LCD TV cannot play MOV files directly on account of its compatible video formats being no other than MKV, MPEG-1, MPEG2, MPEG-4, DivX, Xvid via the USB port or DLNA server.

Based on such limitation, format conversion may be the best place for streaming MOV to LG TV. A popular free application for this is Handbrake. You can download HandBrake here: http://handbrake.fr/

Please change the video and audio codecs to the following:

Video: H.264

Audio: AAC/AC3

Yet what worries some of us is that it will lead to a decline in video and audio quality. Not to worry though, if your QuickTime file is encoded by H.264, you can rewrap MOV to LG TV compatible H.264 MP4 format without decoding and keeping original quality. However, if your MOV file is encoded by other codecs, you can also adjust the video parameters to minimize the quality lost during MOV to LG TV conversion.

I have some mov movies and TV shows stored on iMac,, and I just purchased an LG Smart TV, which says it can stream movies from your computer. Can I stream my mov movies/shows to my LG Smart TV?
