Thank you both for your answers, but I was looking to stream YouTube video, so I think there might be a lag.

all remote desktop applications will have lag and will not offer a consistent 30FPS so video watching will not be recommended.

If you need wireless streaming then you will have to get a feature like widi (though for a desktop PC you will need a PCIe mini pcie adapter and then install a intel ultimate N r6300, then get a widi capable receiver for the TV, then use a wireless keyboard and mouse (completely bypassing the need for a laptop for what you want.

Another option is getting a wireless keyboard and mouse, then getting a long HDMI cable eg http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10240&cs_id=1025501&p_id=9173&seq=1&format=2

Or you can get a cheap STB that supports DLNA and then stream from your PC.

There is also Desktop sharing that are built into windows as well that you could use at home via wireless or wired connection that is also free and is available within windows.

Use an IT remote control service. A good free version is logmein.

teamviewer if you are in the vicinity of both computers. Logmein if you are not near both computers

you can use teamviewer over the internet, so you can be in china (assuming they china does not censor you) while the computer is in the US... Logmein will do the same

yes but with teamviewer you need the specialized code that it gives you in order to log on. So if you are by yourself doing it, then you have to be in the vicinity

Hence the desktop sharing that is with windows. You just need to enable on the computer itself that you want to log onto or into. And when you are at the computer that you want to watch it from you give the name of the computer or the IP address of the computer and log in from there with your credentials to the computer. And should be able to do what you want to do and view the video remotely.

Come to think about it only if you had windows 2003 server there is an option to actual stream music and video from that over wireless and wired connection. Mind you you need a computer set up with windows 2003 server. There is an application that is just dedicate for that on that server OS alone. Darn if I could remember the name of it right now. I would have to set up my 2U unit and log in to check it out the name of the application.
