IR remote to WIFI enabled DVD player

I’d watch more on Youtube, etc. but popping around on the DVD’s letter menu to enter info. is too tedious. Is it possible to program one of these devices to do that? I don’t own a smartphone and am not interested in getting one. I’d like this application to be a once-and-done.

Is it possible something like this is already out there, like a smart keyboard?

Thanks.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum page.
