    How can I connect my Driod to a TV and play my Videos and photos on the TV?

    I don't believe this is possible, because the Droid does not have any type of output that would allow you to connect it to a TV.

    Your best bet is to wait for a hardware accessory adapter for the Droid, but it might be a while for that to come out and that's IF one would actually come out for the Droid.

    There's no video out but you can connect it to a media player like the WD TV.

    Well, there you go to the OP. WD TV is probably your best way right now.

    I just use my PS3. Connect it with the provided USB cable. So even friends of mine that have a PS3, whenever I visit them I'm always showing off new videos on my phone (provided I have the USB cable).

    If your tv has a USB input, you can probably put it in through there.

    That will not work. It will not process the video files in your SD card. You would still need hardware that would do that because even though some TVs have USB ports nowadays, they don't necessarily have the hardware to process those files. You would still need some type of hardware adapter (such as the WD TV, videogame console, or even a computer) between your TV and the Droid.
