I have a Toshiba laptop and would like to view things like Windows Media Player videos, Hulu desktop, youtube, and various other things on my TV screen. What types of cords should I buy to get this done? My TV is not digital, and as far as I know it has no inputs other than a cable line and the standard R/Y/W plugs.

How about via WIFI or bluetooth and have no worries about cables?

Your TV need to support something like Intel Wireless TV (WiDi) or a similar technology. Pretty new standard (i.e. it's only on the most expensive TV's at the moment).
IntelĀ® WiDi and IntelĀ® Pro Wireless Display
