From a Computer Using and HDMI Cord

  1. Locate an available HDMI port on your TV. These ports are usually labeled “HDMI.” If there is more than one port, each will be labeled with a number (e.g., HDMI 1, HDMI 2). 

2. Connect one end of the cable to your laptop’s HDMI port. 

      • You should only be able to insert the HDMI plug into the port in one direction. Never force the cable plug into the port since doing so could damage both the cord and the device.

3. Connect the other end of the cable to the TV’s HDMI port. If your TV has multiple HDMI ports, take note of the HDMI port number you’re using.

4. Turn on the TV and switch to the HDMI source on your TV. Use the SOURCE or INPUT button on your TV or remote to select the HDMI port. You’ll usually have to press it a few times until you reach the right port number. Once you reach the correct source, you should see the device’s image on the screen.

5. Click the Youtube link in your performance reminder email on your laptop. It should now be playing on your TV. 

6. Configure your computer’s audio to route through the TV.

      • Mac: Navigate to Apple menu > System Preferences > Sound > Output and select your TV or HDMI output.
      • Windows: Right-click the volume icon in the system tray (next to the clock), select Sound Settings, and select your computer’s default audio device, often called Speakers (High Definition Audio), from the “Choose your output device” menu.
