When I click a youtube link from within Dolphin Browser (from reddit, for instance) it goes straight to the mobile youtube site to load the video. It does not bring up the screen asking which program I want to use (I want to use the youtube app to open youtube links). I checked manage applications and cleared defaults for youtube and dolphin and it still won't give me an option to launch the youtube app from a youtube link. Any ideas?
The only way I can get it to do what you're talking about is to press and hold the link then select "Open in new tab". I do wish I could just set it to open the YouTube like it used to.
Yea...it is extremely frustrating...especially since once it goes to the mobile youtube site and I hit the back button on my phone, it just refreshes the mobile youtube site.....wish there was a way to fix this.
At the time of my post yes that was how I got it to open the YouTube app. Since Dolphin's latest update it doesn't work. It now only opens in the browser. And worse yet if I click a youtube link (not opening a new tab) to watch a video the Back button does nothing other than reload the youtube page.

"Considering some users prefer to open YouTube videos only on Dolphin Browser, and some guys like you prefer to still use YouTube client, we have already added an option "Choose the way to open current page" while long press the address bar to our latest Dolphin Browser v 9.2.0."
Never noticed that was there, but it does seem to work. You still have to go to the youtube page for the video first in Dolphin, but if you long press the address bar and choose that option and then youtube, it'll then play in the youtube app. That should suffice for me.
