This year at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Google's Youtube is bringing that Second Screen control via DLNA to a number of devices including Bang & Olufsen, LG, Panasonic and Sony. In 2013, this feature will come to even more devices like those from Philips, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, Vizio, Western Digital and others.
YouTube’s AirPlay clone allows users to browse videos with the YouTube Android app for phones and tablets, and then push to the TV screen with the click of a single button. Device discovery is facilitated automatically as long as the devices are in the same network. Previous iterations of YouTube second-screen control functionality required users to first manually pair their devices.

Whether you’re at CES or at home, you can now watch YouTube on 400 million devices: from tablets to TVs, smartphones to streaming boxes, and consoles to cable providers. When you sign in and subscribe on any of these devices, you’ll always have something great to watch next.
