    youtube-app can play youtube videos, but the 'general' tv software can not? Why?

    Can someone please explain the logic behind the fact that the youtube-app can play youtube videos, but the 'general' tv software can not?

    is it cause, or reason?

    Hi,

    the YouTube app uses a different codec (which is supported by the TV) than the YouTube website you can open in the "open internet app".

    I do not understand this sentence. as = at? as = than?


    Anyway; the problem:

    On my windows7 laptop in the mediaplayer, I can do a right click 'play with Philips TV'. It plays all kinds of files, mp3, video files, /playlists, but.... the tv won't play a youtube-url.

    I really want to be able to play playlists of musicvideos from a real-time editable playlist (at a party for instance) and switch between mp3 and video within a playlist.

    My tv can play youtube-files, via the app on nettv. Apparently this is the 'codec' you're talking about.

    The question is, why only this conversion inside the youtube app on nettv (which has severe user interface issues)?

    Why not have the general tv software do the conversion-routine ("codec") every time it encounters the command to play a youtube file?

    Is it possible to use a different app to play the YouTube videos? I am new on this and would like to know if this is possible.

    Yes it is but with your mobile phone or your computer to drive what comes on TV screen.
    Mobile phone is much more practical than any keyboard to run Youtube on TV.
