Yes. DVDs are easy as you probably already know, you just need a DVD capable drive and appropreate software to play. VHS tapes are another matter altogether. You'll have to purchase something that will convert the analog signal from the VHS player to a digital signal your PC can use. I have a device I use to convert VHS tapes to DVD (ADS technologies) I could use to watch tapes but the software leaves a lot to be desred.

How to connect HP PC to Samsung Version SQ01 via USB?

what does video's mean?, endless answers, possible.
no Idea what you are attempting at all.
(my only oblique clue was that SQ01 teaser)
if you have an unstated PC and want to watch Netflix say so.
or if you want to watch local PLEX videos say so. (*.mkv)
I'm pretty sure you meant stream videos not look at DVD.
and USB is NOT IT.

Samsung Version SQ01
this is the LCD panel name not the TV, the TV that uses that SQ01 panel (one) is LN46C630
on the back of the TV is a tag telling you what you own
tell me what you own makes answers 10x more easy.
here is my wild guess. sorry, 45" wide TV.
https://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/LN46C630K1FXZA-specs

when I go there it tell me this RELIC TV is NOT SMART
has no streaming APPS. (box says NO apps)
so my guess is you forget to post like this.


I want to use my PC to watch netfix (or any streaming source)
but my TV is NOT a SMART TV
I have PC (unstated HP ) and want to that with my PC.
The TV is no use, to me or my PC the TV is useless to stream
but It is TRUE the PC can (if not too old) can be the SMART part
yes, you connect the PC to your enternet
and go to Neflex.com , log in and bingo but alas the PC screen is dinky do small and buy hdmi cable and connect PC to TV hdmi
and in the TV push (remote inhand) Input select and HDM1 (what you picked) and bingo TV is not large screen to PC.
on HP laptop the hot key is Fn+F4, to use external screens.
if the HP is desktop say so and we can talk that all day, I you want.

the other way, I have 1 TV in the guest room , huge 55"
that is not SMART also, like yours. just has inputs hdmi.
so on goes the ROKU box for $99 and now IT is a smart TV
no PC needed or wanted there.

so now I answered 3 ways possible to stream vids/.

Is there an app that turns downloaded video into data files to connect via usb to HD tv to enable viewing

If you have to proper codecs installed and can watch it on your phone screen you can output to a TV, bit only IF YOUR PHONE SUPPORTS TV OUT. Chances are pretty good it doesnt, most dont if they dont have a dedicated tv out.

Better chance of getting your tv to support dlna, then just pusb video across the network.

Is there a way to view youtube videos from my samsung champ duos E2652 phone? Where can I find an app for this if this is possible?

nathanharign
Thanks for writing in regard to your concern about asking if it is possible for you to watch Youtube videos on your samsung champ. Let me help you with this.
Yes, it is possible for a phone samsung champ to watch you tube videos and other streaming applications since this phone supports streaming.
All you have to do is contact your network service provider and ask for the streaming settings of this phone.
Now, for the applications we have a lot of streaming apllications, we have youtube, togo tv, rock tv, these are just some applications which you can download online by searching.
Hope I was able to address your concern.

Can you hook up your video camera to your computer and watch your videos on the computer screen like you do with a tv?

Thank you for your question.

Yes, you can hook up your Flip to play on your PC and watch the video on a larger screen.

1. Plug the Flip into the USB port.
2. Go into your "start menu" by clicking on the windows icon in the lower left-hand corner of your desktop.
3. Select "computer."
4. Under your "C" drive, you should see your flip listed as a removable drive.
5. Open that drive, find your video file, double-click on it and wait a few seconds.
6. The video should open and you will be able to watch it on your desktop.

(If you have a large file, you should upload it to YouTube, wait a while until it renders, then watch it on YouTube. Your PC generally will only show relatively short videos.)

Hope this helps.

the tv show you've downloaded is not supported by your player,download total video converter,then convert it to mpeg file if you dont have divx player,storm kodec etc. that might work on it..

Watching recorded video on computer

What I use is a PCI TV card. Just pipe the video to the analog connection and run it full screen.
