I have a Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime, and I was wondering if I could connect my phone to my TV, to watch something, from YouTube, with the right cable? And if you knew the cables, I would need?

Smartphone to TV

Thank you very much for answering my questions. That explains a lot to me. Do you know what kind of phone, I need to have to be able to do this? I'd really appreciate it, if you would let me know. Thank you again!

Usually one with MHL

But that's getting rare today. I'd try the wireless casting next. If the TV doesn't support this, what about a Roku or Amazon Fire TV stick?

Answer
Just use a Cast function or connect via WiFi

1. Tap the Cast Image. It's the icon that resembles a TV with a Wi-Fi symbol in the lower-right corner. This is typically found in the upper-right corner of the app. Your phone will scan for nearby devices and display them in a list.

2. Connect your Samsung TV and phone to the same network. In order to be able to cast from your phone to your TV, both your TV and phone must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
To learn how to connect your Samsung TV to Wi-Fi, read "How to Connect a Samsung TV to Wireless Internet, and read "How to Connect to Wi-Fi on a Cell Phone to learn how to connect your phone to the Wi-Fi network.
