Although looks complicated at first sight, done once you will realise how easy it is and how worthwhile it is for maximum enjoyment
From Mobile phone:

You will need to link your phone to your TV. The method will vary from phone to phone and whether you have an Android or Iphone
Some phones come with chromecast which makes it easier.
1. On your TV. Launch YouTube
2. On your phone open YouTube app and click on blue initial top right then ‘settings’
3. On your phone click on ‘Watch on TV’ and with any luck you will see your TV on the list to choose
3a Otherwise:- On your TV navigate to settings and select ‘Link TV and Phone ‘ and you will get an 8 figure code
On your Phone enter the blue 8 figure TV code shown on your TV screen into the box. ADD THIS TV.
From PC or laptop
Make sure that it is connected to the same network as your TV
Using Chrome as your browser makes it slightly easier but others will work
1. On your TV Launch Youtube
2. On your TV navigate to settings in YouTube and select ‘Link TV and computer ‘ and you will get an 8 figure code (Make a note of it)
3. On your computer use browser to connect to www.YouTube.com.
4. On your computer make sure you are logged into to your google/gmail account
5. On your computer Click on blue initial at top left and choose settings and then ‘Watch on TV’
6. On your computer enter the blue 8 figure TV code shown on your TV screen(from 2 above) into the box. ADD THIS TV.
On either Mobile or computer launch the video from the link. Pause the video if necessary and look for the Cast icon
(rectangle with arcs of a circle radiating from bottom left hand corner) which will switch the presentation to your TV
To stop casting content, tap the Cast button and then Disconnect.
Note: if you are using the blue code to connect mobile/computer to TV you will need to get a new code each time as the code changes
Sounds of the 50s/70s
Sounds of the 60s meets the 4th Tuesday in the month at 2.00 pm
Sounds of the 50s/70s meets the 2nd Tuesday in the month at 2.00 pm
Currently both groups are meeting via Zoom but hope to return to meeting at the Tennis Club as soon as circumstances allow.
So that maximum number of members can enjoy the presentations, where possible they are made into YouTube videos and the links are shown below.
It is not always possible to create a YouTube video so we are experimenting with an alternative method of giving members access via a ‘Members Only‘ area which is protected by a password.
Members of both groups will receive the necessary password to gain access
Even if you are normally unable to attend the Tuesday meeting you are welcome to join the group and receive notifications of the presentations and access them through YouTube or the Members only area. You will need to register with Brian Little (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details and the password
Sounds of the 60s
If these presentations leave you needing more – have you considered Radio Caroline Flashback which plays 50/60/70s music throughout the day. It is available on Android or Alexa by entering the station name or via your browser on phone/laptop/tablet using this link
