How can I connect my laptop to my TV and watch YouTube?

Episode 1500 (1:49:31)

Sandy from Lomita, CA
Apple AirPort

Sandy wants to watch video from her laptop on her TV. Leo says that most laptops have an HDMI port and she can connect it directly. She says it won't work at home, but it will at work. Leo says the Apple AirPort is Wi-Fi, so she can connect wirelessly through the AirPort and then direct it to her TV via DNLA, if her TV supports Wi-Fi. She can connect via Wi-Fi and then set up her Sony TV to connect to the Wi-Fi as well. Once both devices are connected by the AirPort, she'll be able to do it. The last thing she can do, and the easiest, is to use an Apple TV. Then she can connect wirelessly directly to the TV from her phone.
