The Google owned video sharing network is home to millions of shows ranging from the outrageously ridiculous to the absolutely fantastic, produced by both the novice home users to professional networks alike. The bottom line is there is always something to watch on YouTube provided you don’t mind sifting through the content. As far as using the app on the Chromecast is concerned it is child’s play. The Chromecast icon is prominently placed at the top of the app and you just need to touch it and select your Chromecast from the list that pops up. Once connected you can navigate YouTube in the normal fashion and press the play button to watch a video on the TV. A nice feature of YouTube is the use of playlists, meaning you can watch a series of shows back to back without having to tap play each time. The Chromecast supports this feature which gives you the freedom to sit back, put your feet up with a nice cup of tea and watch your favourite shows.
