Xbox One Tip of the Day! Youtube device pairing w/ your Xbox One

With the Youtube App, you can pair your Xbox One with your tablet, phone, laptop, or PC.

What this allows you to do (for those who might not know) is select a video or playlist on your PC or device, and it will automatically play it on your tv. Basically making the Youtube App worthwhile since it's easier to browse and search for a video on the computer, then watch it on the TV through your Xbox One and your computer is still freed up to browse the web or do whatever while the video is playing on your tv screen.

The instructions are all right there in the Youtube app on your Xbox. This feature isn't new or anything, but i just figured it out today. It's incredibly easy to do, first you sync your xbox with your youtube account which is really simple, the xbox will give you a short numerical code that you activate on youtube (no pesky usernames or passwords required). Once the account is connected to your youtube account, you'll do the same thing one more time to pair the device.

Once it's all set up, you'll click this Icon and Select Xbox One

(don't mind the mess,i'm in the process of moving and i haven't moved my actual desk in so i have a makeshift coffee table for a entertainment center >_> )

it's nothing amazing, but a neat little convenience feature if you like to watch a lot of stuff on Youtube. Playlists work also, they automatically play with about a 10 second delay in between videos.

That's pretty cool of you to post in detail for those that didn't know.


Ps it can also be done on 360 the same way.

This sounds pretty cool. Do I need a Youtube account to do it?

i havent looked into it yet, but can you also upload clips from your xbox to youtube, all done through the xbox? i usually edit and upload clips to onedrive, then save the movie file from onedrive to my computer. then, on my computer, i upload the movie clip to youtube. if i can do it all on my xbox, that would be so convenient.

One FYI to add to this, you have to open the YouTube app on Xbox before you'll be able to connect your phone to it each time you boot up your Xbox. I couldn't figure out at first why Xbox wasn't showing up in my list of devices on my phone at first. Turns out just having the system on isn't enough to trigger it in the list.

At least, that is the case with Android devices.

There is an Achievement for "Upload a video from your Xbox One" so that's likely possible. I don't know though.

I just looked and it works.
