    I want to be able to select which movie player my system uses to play YouTube videos. The HTC Flash Player is great and allows me to expand to the full screen but the YouTube player sucks and leaves nearly a centimeter of space around the edge of the video.

    I have an application (sc2casts.com) which launched a player to play videos it links from YouTube. Currently when I launch the video it gives me the option to launch YouTube Player or Web Browser. Launching web browser just opens the YouTube page and lets me play it in the HTC Player. Can I skip the step of having it open the web browser and just have it open the link in the HTC Flash Player?

    Can I play YouTube videos via the Moboplayer?

    What is the best YouTube movie player available now and how can I configure it so it is the default?

    I simply use Youtube player. You might have black boards if the video was recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio or uploaded in the wrong AR. Try different videos and you should see a difference.
    Alternatively, try jetVD player.

    That's not my problem, these videos are 4:3. The YouTube player as well as Jet, offer no zoom feature like Moboplayer or even the HTC Flash Player. Jet is even worse, other Android apps cannot pass a URL to Jet to play, you can only play YouTube videos by searching. For instance, i tap a video in the Facebook or the SC2Casts app, it offers me to open the video in the YouTube player, Jet, or browser. If i select Jet, it just opens the program with a search box, not my video. If I open in browser, it takes me to the YouTube website. If I click the video there, I get the additional option to select the HTC Flash Player. I have also streamed YouTube video into Moboplayer but it was convoluted to get it to open.

    My question is, how can I get the option to open YouTube videos in the HTC player consistently, or better yet, Mobo.
