Ever wish you could watch those cats playing piano on the big screen? Then today is your lucky day, as HP announced that YouTube videos will be viewable on its MediaSmart connected devices like the upcoming MediaSmart Connect and MediaSmart TV. Users will be able to log into their YouTube account and browse through videos using a remote control.

MediaSmart is like HP’s answer to the Apple TV, only it will be more open (like that’s hard). The system consolidates music, video, photos and other content into a single menu operated with a remote control.
