    Since day one when I went on youtube to watch a video it asked me do you want to view view in browser or video??

    I liked deciding because if I clicked browser I could read and post comments..but I accidentally clicked the video viewer as daily and can't change it back...
    Now when I click a video on youtube I can't read or post any comments..

    How do I change it back?

    Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Manage applications -> Menu -> Filter -> All -> YouTube -> Clear defaults -> Back -> Browser -> Clear defaults.

    Next time you open a video, it should ask you which you want to use.

    Then you choose Browser, wait to download, then you have to double click the file to play it. Many sites I've found, like local news sites or Fox News will not play or stream any videos. Either just a blank screen or nothing at all, or it ends up on my Google Search page again... very strange indeed. I was really expecting to be able to view the video from within the page, or an enlarged view instead of a totally separate window.

    It's because the Captivate runs Android 2.1, which does not support Flash. So Youtube videos need to be handed off to a separate native app which then plays it using other protocols.
