    You can watch You Tube videos on DirecTV, through Media Share, if you have TVersity installed.

    Here is how I view You Tube videos, using Media Share & TVersity;
    1. Open TVersity on your computer.
    2. On the right side of the TVersity screen, under the TVersity logo, select You Tube.
    3. When the You Tube page pops up select the categories you want to view by clicking on the "+" on the right of the category. Select as many as you want.
    4. If you want to verify they got selected, select the "Library" tab. Then select "Media RSS Feeds/Video RSS". You should see the categories you choose in the right box.
    5. Open Media Share, on the TV.
    6. Select (Computer name)TVersity.
    7. Then select RSS & Podcasts.
    8. Select the Category you want to view videos from.
    9. On the next screen select the video you want to watch.

    You Tube is scary easy on the DirecTV receivers using PlayOn (along with Hulu, Netflix, CBS, any video podcast on the planet). Just select YouTube on your HR2x thru Media Share and tha't it.

    Also can with Tversity and other media share programs.

    Yeah, this is becoming a more and more common business practice. My company has blocked many of our overseas offices using smart firewalls. They regularly block YouTube, Facebook, Hulu, Limelight and other commercial sites that have a record of being abused by employees (they perform a detailed analysis before any ban.) In some cases they have found a 95% bandwidth use on these sites. I work with these offices to return the access with rules imposed for the employees. Just a sign of the times.

    I have YouTube access on my new Sony XBR TV and I have to say, it isn't that exciting. I prefer to watch it on my computer given even the best resolutions now available on YouTube.
