Use YouTube to queue videos for Chromecast viewing

Chromecast and YouTube are like a match made in heaven. And, since they're both part of Google's big picture strategy, it makes sense for both things to be as friendly as possible with each other. To that end, YouTube's taken to to Google+ (how meta, eh?) to reveal that Chromecast owners can now use its site (as in to queue videos -- essentially, this is meant to simplify the process, since it lets you arrange what to play next from a single tab on your browser. Just as well, there are more changes coming to the YouTube watch page on the web (pictured below), including an easier way to create playlists and share videos across social networks, plus a new description box. The Chromecast feature is available now, while the other tweaks are expected to rollout over the next few days.

Turkey is looking to block YouTube following ban on Twitter

Turkey's government is looking to block YouTube after leaked audio of Turkish officials speaking about Syria was posted on Google's video-streaming website.
According to the BBC the block is being imposed by the Turkish telecoms authority TIB however some are still claiming they can get access to the site through their smartphones.
Reuters has investigated the YouTube recording and has confirmed that if true it would be one of the most damaging leaks to appear since the government banned Twitter.
This comes just days after Turkey banned access to Twitter after a user posted allegations of corruption against a former minister. Despite this traffic to the site has remained largely unchanged thanks to alternative routes to Twitter being shared by the population.
