Many people have probably been doing this for ages, but I have just found out that I can now do it. Our DVD recorder is getting old and has been replaced by an HDD recorder which also has a wi-fi connection. After setting it up I thought I'd see what it would do other than just record tv shows, and viewing youtube is an option.

No doubt you can guess what I searched for - and to my surprise I can now watch my videos (and others) on tv. Not only that, I found my playlists and can watch them as well. The quality seems better than if I watch them on the pc screen.

There is also an option to "subscribe" to a channel using the recorder, don't know how notifications of new videos come through though.

So if you have an internet connection, like watching youtube (not just my videos of course) but don't want to spend time sat at a computer or with a smartphone or tablet - you can now sit back in comfort and watch the telly.

EDIT - just been talking to a friend of mine, says he's been watching youtube on tv for ages. Looks like I'm way behind the times!!
