My friend was using her YouTube app on her Ipad and she pressed something accidentally, and the video suddenly appeared on her TV! I conclude that the Ipad and the TV were both connected to the wifi router, and that's why that happened. We didn't specifically set that up. I guess she pressed the cast button on the YouTube app.

Totally separate question: is it possible to cast videos from a device to a TV using Bluetooth?

I think you can't stream video on Bluetooth, only audio. Bluetooth can't carry enough bandwidth?

How do people use Bluetooth on a smarttv? Some are headphones or using a mobile device as a remote.

Many tv's have built-in cast devices, such as Miracast or Intel WiDi or even Chromecast in much newer tv's.

I don't know if it's possible to cast video with Bluetooth, just audio. You can for sure with Miracast or Intel Widi

There are certain version of the Apple TV gen 3 which will take a bluetooth video stream via AirPlay. Not great performance.
