    Hey guys I searched for awhile but couldn't find anything about it. How do you get the Incredible to open up the youtube player when you tapping on a youtube vid on a webpage? Right now mine opens up the HTC flash player to play it.. I would rather have it open the youtube player for the full screen high quality experience like my moto droid did. Thanks.

    Nobody has the same problem? It's really annoying to always try and find the vid in the youtube app

    You could try finding the HTC flash player in the manage applications folder. Menu settings manage applications and scroll until you find it. Tap on it, see if there is a clear default button. If there is, tap on that. The next time you choose to play the video it may ask you which program you want to use to eTched the video. However, if you are trying to view the video through the internet, it might not and always default to HTC flash player.

    What about long pressing on the video, will that give you other options?

    I was trying to solve this on my own today. It seems strange that we are not able to do this.
