Debugging website in WebOS 22


I am a web developer and I can see that some of my users are using browser in WebOS (installed on LG TV) to access my website. They experience problems with media playback so I would like to debug the issue.

It is, however, quite problematic to do so. I use Mac M1 and have tried running:

  1. WebOS emulator
  2. WebOS in VirtualBox

Emulator is used to test your local apps, but not the built-in browser which comes preinstalled. VirtualBox doesn’t really work for M1 chips, I was unable to run WebOS in it.

Are there any other ways to test built-in browser in WebOS 22 which I am missing ?

We don’t provide debug options for the browser app. But the browser app on webOS TV 22 uses Chromium 87, the same web engine as the web app. So you can package your app as a hosted web app and test it using the webOS TV 22 Simulator. Thank you.
