    I have a cable that goes from my laptop to the tv so that I can play anything I want on the tv, including youtube videos without having to save them or convert them into other programmes. Might that be easier?

    Thanks, oldsomeman, you've given me the oportunity to ask another question about youtube downloads. I can save music to my computer, and I can listen to it on my computer, but when I transfer it to CD, it doesn't work on my audiogram. I don't have this problem when I copy tracks from CDs and transfer them to other CD's I compile, What's the trick?

    Depends on the quality/definition

    You tube used to be 8MBPS for 1080p video which gives you something like 4Gb per hour but recently with changes to higher bitrates and higher resolutions that can be doubled, tripled or even more.
    There are so many variables that the best way to find out is to try it and see.


    Can be one of two things (or more)
    Can be the format of the music and can be the recording system
    Sounds like it is probably the former

    Most devices that can accept a usb stick and play videos will accept a number of formats. You will need to look in the manual but commonly accept formats are mpeg2, MKV and mp4.

    My blueray will play the videos I have on my NASbox which were recorded on my stand alone video recorder box. These were recorded in mpeg2.

    If you want maximum versatility you could get a cheap Kodi box as they are known. This is a small computer running Android usually with Kodi added. Kodi will pretty much play any format.
