when i click on a youtube video that is on a website, the "htc flash player" automatically starts playing the video in low choppy quality. If anyone knows how to force the native browser on the EVO to play the youtube links with the youtube app or at least let me choose which app opens the link, please reply.
i already checked and the "htc flash player" does not have the option to clear defaults.
thanks in advance to anyone that can help.
Try using a different browser. I use Dolphin Browser HD. When you select an imbedded youtube video from a website, you get a pop-up that you lets you choose which app to use to watch the video: HTC Flash Player or YouTube or any other flash app you have on your Evo.
By choosing the YouTube app, you then can choose between regular or HQ.
thanks ccerose for the info but i want that choice on the native browser, i have tried dolphin, skyfire and opera and i dont like them as much as the native browser.
tried it and it doesnt work, the htc flash player automatically plays the video every time and it doesnt give me a choice to open the video with the youtube app....so far the solution is to use dolphin browser for looking at sites with youtube videos (annoying)
You have to hold the link, copy the address or URL and then paste that into the search bar of the youtube app, removing and excess tags like embed, etc. When you hit search, if done correctly, you will have 1 result with the same video.
holy crap...that worked...who knew all i had to do is press and old on the play button of the video, copy the link, paste on to the youtube app search box, remove the "vnd.youtube:" from the front and the youtube app would understand that jiberrish afterward..
i had tried that but without removing the "vnd.youtube"....@theindiearmy, thank you very much for this work around....this will save me from opening dolphin broswer every time....
this is a great work around for now, but if sprint and htc are reading this, please just make a choice box when i click on the youtube video to open with the youtube app, just like the EVO already ask for so many other things.
