    Is it possible to play free u-tube and various videos on an HDTV with a blue ray player?
    Is it possible to copy free u tube videos and place them on a CD or hard drive
    to play a HDTV. I am talking about videos without copyrights that are free.
    If a person uses a hard drive I guess a computer would have to be connected
    to the HDTV.
    I have a Roku streamer but I can never find videos on it that I like. I am looking for
    Ball Room Dance lesson videos (common on u tube) that can be played on a HDTV.
    Roku does not have a free channel that plays these type of videos that I am
    ware of.

    Thank you,

    I assume you mean YouTube videos, correct? Or is u-tube something else?

    I'm not aware of any settop streaming device, other than the Tivo, that streams YouTube videos. You would have to find a Blu-ray player that specifically lists a YouTube app as part of its feature set.

    No, you cannot download and burn YouTube videos to CD, DVD, external hard drive, or flash drive. YouTube's terms of service do not allow users to download videos regardless of who uploaded them or what their copyright is.

    Yes. The TV simply acts as a monitor for the computer.
    No. There's no YouTube channel for Roku.
