This tutorial will show you how to set up MediaStreamer on your LG Smart TV.

MediaStreamer is a DNS service designed to improve your streaming experience. Since LG TVs do not natively support VPN, you can use MediaStreamer as an alternative for streaming.

Note: MediaStreamer is not a VPN and does not offer the privacy and security benefits of a VPN. MediaStreamer does not have a graphical user interface. You cannot change locations on MediaStreamer.

Note: This tutorial was written using a LG TV Web OS Version 04.05.60. The steps to changing the DNS should be similar on most LG Smart TVs.

If you have:

  • an Android device or
  • an iOS device and an AirPlay 2-compatible LG TV,

you can mirror content to your LG TV without using MediaStreamer.

Jump to…

1. Register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website
2. Get your MediaStreamer server IP addresses
3. Configure the settings on your LG TV
Restore DNS settings
Cast or mirror from your device to LG TV


1. Register your IP address on the ExpressVPN website

Go to the ExpressVPN DNS settings page. If prompted, enter your ExpressVPN credentials and click Sign In.

Enter your account credentials, then click "Sign In."

Enter the verification code sent to your email.

Under IP address registration, click Register my IP address. If it already reads “registered” next to your IP address, there is no need to select this option again.

Next to "My IP address," click "Register my IP address."

Toggle Automatically register my IP address on. This is recommended as it automatically tracks changes to your IP address.

Toggle "Automatically register my IP address" on.

Once you have enabled Automatically register my IP address, be sure to keep your registered IP address updated by periodically signing in to your account on the ExpressVPN website. Alternatively, you can use the ExpressVPN app (on any device) while connected to the same network as your LG Smart TV. These actions grant the devices on your network continued access to MediaStreamer.

On the right, you will find the MediaStreamer DNS server IP addresses.

Cast or mirror from your device to LG TV

Casting and mirroring are wireless technologies that allow you to stream content from your device to an LG TV.

If you want to stream from your device (with VPN) to your LG TV, here are the compatible casting and mirroring options:

Casting Mirroring
Android (with VPN)✘ Not supported✔ Supported
Windows (with VPN)✘ Not supported✔ Supported
Chromebook (with VPN)✘ Not supported✘ Not supported
Linux (with VPN)✘ Not supported✘ Not supported

You can cast or mirror content from iOS or macOS to LG TVs that support AirPlay 2.

Alternatively, you can connect your LG TV to a VPN router, a manually configured VPN, or a virtual VPN router. Under this option, you do not need to cast or mirror content from your device to your LG TV. You simply need a VPN-connected LG TV to stream the content.
