    Hi, new android user here, hoping someone can help me out.

    I was using the facebook app and clicked a youtube video link and decided to make youtube the default app to launch for this specific action. However, I later decided that I want it to launch the link in a browser (so I can read comments) instead of playing instantly after clicking the link.

    I tried "Clear defaults" under settings>applications>manage applications but there is no settings for youtube. I tried to clear defaults for facebook and my browser, and tried reinstalling the facebook app but no luck.

    I think I know the answer here. When you are looking at the list of programs under manage applications, hit the menu button on your phone and one of the options is "filter." Select that and change it from downloaded to running. Youtube should show in the list now.
