PC HDMI wirelessly to TV HDMI

Hi there.
I was wondering if there was some way I could use the laptops HDMI to wirelessly send signals to the TV HDMI socket, without a physical cable connection.
What are the parts called?
Whats the performance like.

Id like to watch movies beamed from the Laptop to the TV and some Youtube clips, sort of thing.

Thanks John.

Plug something into your TV's HDMI input that can accept a wifi stream. Apple TV is one such device. There are others.

Most TVs with HDMI have inbuilt DLNA clients, so all you do is run a DLNA server, e.g., twonky, plex, and stream (compressed H.264 via mkv, m4v, mp4) away.

Apple TV, trailers.apple.com dns requests (from Trailers app), can be redirected to a plex server plus you get Youtube, Netflix and HuluPlus.

P.S. Build yourself a Linux box with many terabytes to serve the movies.

Miracast. Just like Chromecast except router not necessary and incompatible on Windows 7 and older. A few devices currently on the market but here's a review of 3 of them:

You can download direct to computer then transfer to large capacity flash drive or portable drive via (USB port) then remove and plug direct into USB port on TV (most modern TV's have port and programming capabilities).
