Default how to connect my LG ESTEEM to HDTV

If I stream a video from youtube or another website, how can I make it so that the output goes to my TV? I have the hdmi cable and it works when I watch videos through my SD card, but I can't figure out how to do it from websites or youtube.

I'm guessin you've activated HDMI under Settings/connections and turning on HDMI to automaticly know when you plug in the cable.

If so and you still can't see from the web or youtube, then the OS may not support that option or the apps don't.

I'll have to look further into it.

but if you haven't turned on the HDMI settings. Let me know if you did and if that worked.

My HDMI worked perfectly. But the video does not look like 720p. That part must be a lie.

$5 shipped? That's a nice price. What length did you get?

I hate ordering from China. It takes too long to deliver.
