You can obviously control your PC with your smartphone using apps, but wouldn’t it be great if you could just save some storage on your smartphone?

This tutorial I made is for Android device but the procedure is pretty much same on iPhone. Here are the steps:

First you need connect your smartphone and PC on a same network and then open the Leanback version of YouTube site i.e. YouTube.com/tv, and click on the three horizontal dots located at the left side.
