Not possible. If your smart TV has an SD card slot, take the card out of 55 and put it in TV.

10 years, many dashcams
Yes your best choice will be to transfer footage to USB stick, or you might be able to connect a USB card reader to the TV and then put the memory card in that.
Many dashcams make up for lousy mass storage devises, often you cant even play the footage off the camera without the steam lagging.

If your TV have a memoory card slot its probably a regular SD slot and not micro SD like most dashcams use, in that case you can use a micro -> SD adapter that often come with a new memory card.

I'm able to watch videos on my Samsung Smart TV by screen casting from my Samsung Note 3 - I can connect my Rexing dashcam to my phone using USB OTG and watch the videos straightaway. I'm sure the LG Smart TV has some feature like that.
