Watching YouTube on your television allows you, your friends, and your family to enjoy videos on a larger screen directly from the comfort of your living room. The most ideal way to watch YouTube on TV is to activate the YouTube app on your Smart TV or video game console, then access videos with just a few clicks of your remote.
Access the Internet using either a wired or wireless connection on your computer or laptop.
Find the video port on your computer. This will most likely be a VGA port or a DVI port if your computer is a newer model.
Connect your computer to your TV using a VGA or DVI cable. These can be found at many electronics stores.
Locate the display settings on your computer.
Change your display settings to external display settings. This will make the TV mirror the content on your computer screen.
Turn on your TV.
Use your TV remote and change your external input settings to a different setting. Scroll through the different input settings until your computer screen shows on the TV screen.
Play your YouTube video on your computer. The video should play on your TV at the same time.
