The Day In Online Video News And Views 17th December 2013

For those of us tired of using Twonky or some other workaround to beam YouTube to Roku, the company has announced, after 3 years of arguing, that they have worked out a solution and viewers will now be able to access YouTube via their set-top box. It applies to the latest generation of Roku 3 boxes only at the moment but older sets should have this facility in 2014.

Following a new software release, Glass owners will now be able to wink to capture an image, send and receive Hangout calls and upload their videos to YouTube. The wearable computer also gets a safety lock function, and, somewhat randomly, users can now ask Glass to confirm the calorie count of their food. These and other stories from the last few days in online video and cable.
