In its first update since 2012, the YouTube app for PlayStation 3 is getting its ‘send to TV’ feature, which allows you to play videos from mobile devices on your TV.
I've been doing this for the last 3-6months with the ps3 and YouTube using tablets and phones
http://www.youtube.com/watc... That video is a year old.. I don't get this article. I used to do that all the time with my phone. It was easy, quick and really convenient!
I think they updated it though, it wasn't always so easy.
Yeah it automatically syncs with your phone now. Minor update but still cool.
Now if only they would make the app useful, i.e. high quality videos. It's useless if you own a comp.
I keep seeing people say this, but it's as clear on my TV as anything else. I'm not understanding something.
the videos play in 720 now, they've been done that for about a year now
I dont get it either , if you want hd feeds its there . Just tired of the awful interface for the app . Remind me the worst days of search in Vidzone
And that's why I'm using YouTube app on Android to send videos to PS3. Godsend IMO.
There is high quality but I believe the resolution is automatic according to your internet speed. Now what I wish is a way to switch the quality because on mine it buffers a lot but knows it can load high quality videos perfectly at times. But I read from YouTube that right now it's not possible to change video quality because the app just mirrors the video from their site.
it does 720p, which is better than "high quality"
@dantesparda That's what I meant, thanks for the correction. :) Forgot high quality means 480p.
This app needs fixing. So buggy&slow.... Not optimized at all.
I have had no issues with it except for it not syncing with my age settings. What do you mean buggy/slow?
When you watch videos, it doesn't stutter every so often?
Can barely get to search for a video. And to type for search is even worse.
I agree. I use my PS3 for streaming everything but for some reason Youtube vids lag all the time. I do have the oldest PS3 model with poor wifi however. But still, Netflix/Amazon fine.
The wifi is just fine in that model, its just an horrible app overall.
yes it does lag, even on a 50mbs connection
Same, been using this for 6 mths. Great feature and a hell of a lot better. Only use ps3 with phone now for my YouTube needs, love the add to Que option
Xbox been had these features. Get it together Sony
If you read the comments it's be available for like 6-8months the person that wrote the article just isn't upto date with times
PS3 youtube app had this feature before xbox
anyone else think this app sucks? when you watch a video, it takes very long to load, i thought it was my internet, but my brothers 50mps connection also lagged... its the app....
Mine loads almost instantly
you probably have 1gbs connection im guessing?
I wish. 60mbps
That's not Gigabit speed but damn good if you asked me. I got only 25 MB wahhh! : (
