Play Youtube videos on your TV!

Post by Dreamweaver » 08 Aug 2018, 18:13

Has anyone tried this?

https://www.youtube.com/pair
1 Launch YouTube on your TV device.
2 Navigate to settings and select 'Link TV and Phone'.
3 Enter the blue TV code shown on your TV into the box below.
4 Click the icon to select the display on which your video will play.
Link with TV code

Enter TV code
Add this TV
I have recently acquired a Fetch box, which I was told would do this. but now I read the function has been disabled. As my modem signal is strong enough to reach our community room, we hoped to play various chair-exercises on the tv screen there. I don't even know how to "Launch YouTube on your TV device."
I dream, therefore I am.

I've never seen this before DW.
If I really want to watch something on Youtube I just plug my iPad into the TV. I watch movies like this too. So easy :icon_biggrin:

Just realised I'm living in the past there. :lol: My smart TV plays Youtube anyway. The TV is smarter than me it seems.

You need to be able to watch streaming video on your TV. If it's a recent model it will have this function. Otherwise you need a DVD player with the same facility.

Alternatively, if the TV has a USB port, plug your smartphone into it and do as Lynny says.
