    As of ICS when u click on a YouTube link from anywhere it will load it browser 100% of the time with no option to load the YouTube app, how do I change it?
    LEASE NOTE CLEARING DEFAULTS DOES NOTHING!!!!! As the browser forces u to load YouTube links in browser instead of giving me the option to load in YouTube app

    I believe that is the ICS issue with one of their lawsuits with Apple, there is an app that you can flash that will resolve that, but you need to be rooted. Maybe others will have a another solution, but none that I am aware of.

    yep this is due to the apple lawsuit. you can go into app associations and make sure you have the default item checked to launch the desires link, but things will be different in ICS and moving forward...

    There is a Zip that can allow for this to work properly like it use too, but you need to be rooted to be able to flash it, called [MOD]HTCLinkifyDispatcher Fix
