What exactly is a smart tv? Can you connect to the internet and watch YouTube videos on it?

First, a definition of a smart TV as follows: A Smart TV, also known as a connected TV (CTV), is a traditional television set with integrated Internet and interactive Web 2.0 features that allow users to stream music and videos, browse the internet, and view photos. Smart TV is a technological convergence of computers, television sets and set-top boxes. Besides the traditional functions of television sets and set-top boxes provided through traditional broadcasting media, these devices can also provide Internet TV, online interactive media, over-the-top content (OTT), as well as on-demand streaming media, and home networking access.
Second, the answer is yes. Smart TV's do allow internet connection where you can watch YouTube videos or various streaming services. (Make sure you have the appropriate apps installed on the TV.)Source(s): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_TV

Yes, a "smart TV" has the equivalent of one of those streaming boxes or sticks you would plug in to the HDMI input, already in it. It'll have some popular streaming apps installed that you can sign up for or use the subscription you already have, and may be able to add more apps depending on the model.

That is exactly the main difference from an ordinary TV. There are many apps to choose from.
