    "Youtube is a Google product. This is the most popular online video sharing site in the world today. Youtube was born in 2005. Before being acquired by Google in 2006, I followed myself through Youtube at the time before the acquisition by Google. The initial speed in Vietnam is very poor. Later on Google acquired, the video view through Youtube has improved very well, as I guess they have placed servers in Vietnam so the speed has improved. With Youtube you can watch videos from around the world, from kids videos, tv shows, tutorials, courses .... Videos on youtube are generally countless."

    "LocalCast for Chromecast is and app that allows a person to play videos from their mobile or tablet onto their TV. Apparently there is some minor complaint about ads when using this app but there is a paid version of it also that probably helps eliminate that problem. If one has videos and movies and such on smaller devices and wanted to watch them on their smart TV this app might be ideal."

    "This is cool for watching music videos for free. One of the things I like best is that I get a notification when new content is uploaded from my favorites. You can also make a playlist of all the songs you love. Pretty easy to search by artist, song or genre too. Overall, a pretty cool app."

    "I love Spotify for discovering new music, it makes the playlist for you! However, I was looking for an app to help me cast videos and things to my tv, and this doesn't seem to be Spotify's function. So, I'm still looking for an app to do that."

    "Pandora is a great app and one that I use on a daily basis. That being said, I don't believe it actually has any ability to cast music to other devices. That is something more for Plex or apps like that."
