If you have free time and an Internet connection, then few things beat killing time than streaming videos on YouTube. YouTube has countless hours of entertainment in the form of all kinds of different videos. While laptop owners might be able to simply lie down in bed and take their laptop with them to enjoy YouTube videos, computer owners with large displays are not able to do the same. They need a way to relax on their couch and still be able to control the playback of their YouTube videos as they view them in full screen.
