View Full Version : Use keyboard in the youtube app

09-01-2012, 09:13 AM

I've discoverd that I can connect a keyboard on my fantastic TV, and so I would like to use it in the youtube app. My keyboard works with other apps (it's properly configured) but in this app I can't use it.

Is there any solution ?

Same here , however I am worried this is not something philips can solve as my cousin is having a Samsung tv with the same issue

I'm afraid this is an app issue. It depends on how the key entries are managed. It is the same with other apps like vimeo or dailymotion. You can use the keyboard when a virtual keyboard is shown. Otherwwise a range with letters is shown and you should move with the remote contol.

Please, update tih application, so we can use external keyboard/mouse in youtube.

For the moment there are good apps on BDP7700/12, but, in "Dailymotion app" i can't use my wireless keyboard for research; in "Youtube app" i can use the wireless keyboard for research!!
PHILIPS can do something?

you find how to use the browser on your mobile phone with you tube on smart tv :)

It works perfect on my iPhone 3.

Hi Marco,

Thanks for your reply.

The issue is with a keyboard attached to the Philips TV, I assume there are more option like the remote you mentioned, however I want to use the keyboard in the youtube app as you can use the keyboard in the other apps too.
