This year, DJI company, the leader of drone manufacturer, has announced that it's launching a Smart TV app that'll stream plenty of aerial content and 4k videos captured from DJI drones and cameras. Unfortunately, the app is only be made available on Samsung's Tizen TVs and Apple TV. If you want to play your DJI streams drone footage on LG TV, you're still only able to use the USB.
You can put the Micro SD card into a USB adapter and plug it into the LG TV. Or you can trasnfer your DJI streams drone footage to PC and then put it onto an USB HDD for playback on LG TV. Before inserting the USB HDD to LG TV USB port, you'd make sure the DJI streams drone footage is supported by LG TV. Previously, to play videos directly from a USB flash drive connected to a USB port on LG LED TV, the video should be in DivX HD format. Depending on the model, the LG TV supports DivX 3, 4, 5 and 6. Later, the new LG TV models also support H.264 MP4 video files.
DJI drones/quadcopters can record videos in H.264 MP4 video. But all DJI drones also record video files in MOV container. For DJI drones supporting 4K recording like DJI Phantom 4 Pro, DJI Inspire 2 also export H.265 codec video in both MP4 and MOV video. You can't play H.265 MP4/MOV DJI video on LG TV unless your LG TV is the latest 4K models. Simply, to play all DJI streams drone footage on any LG TV model, you can transcode DJI video to H.264 MP4 video or DivX video for LG TV with a DJI video converter.
