Popular video sharing site YouTube, which in case you didn’t know is owned by Google, has announced to the world that viewing YouTube videos on any large screen is now easier than ever thanks to the new and enhanced YouTube XL. According to Platforms Product Manager, Kuan Yong, the offering is part of YouTube’s commitment to provide video delivery across as many platforms as possible. Take for example the introduction of the special website for Sony PS3 and Nintendo Wii from last January, or the YouTube page optimized for mobile devices.

“The new YouTube XL is optimized for watching YouTube videos on any large screen. In addition to an all new design offering large text and simplified navigation, YouTube XL offers a continuous play feature, which lets you search for a topic on YouTube and then press "play" once to watch all of the videos sequentially on that topic. Also, getting from one video to the next takes just a few clicks, and you can control the action with a blue tooth enabled remote control, or even some mobile phones,” explained Kuan Yong .

The upside is that you can watch HD videos on any large screen and you can even use YouTube XL on your Internet connected game consoles. “Check out larger-than-life roller coaster point-of-view videos, work-out routines with the screen out of high-kick range, university lectures where you can read the blackboard, and home videos the whole family can watch together,” added Yong. The downside is that not all YouTube videos are available via YouTube XL.
