Samsung Blu-ray players to support YouTube

Certain Samsung Blu-ray players will be able to display YouTube content — the feature to be displayed at CEDIA EXPO 2009, from Sept. 10-13. The Samsung BD-P1600, BD-P3600 and BD-P4600 Blu-ray players will support user-contributed YouTube videos at no additional cost.

YouTube content will be accessible via a button on the Samsung remote control, and searched by categories similar to the taxonomy presented on the website.

In related news, the Wall Street Journal reported that Hollywood studios were considering providing movie rentals through YouTube. Shares of both Blockbuster and Netflix stocks fell slightly with the news.
