youtube won't work... I think I screwed up...

    Playing around with my phone I have removed a bunch of applications I didn't think I needed, I'm wondering if I actually did need one of them...

    Here's what's happening: I open my browser (DolphinHD) and navigate to youtube.com and pick any video. when I click on the video it won't play, instead I get an error dialog which says "Select an action - No applications can perform this action."

    If I DID delete the necessary application, what application was it? and how do I get it back?

    In case it matters, I'm running a rooted android 2.1 on a TELUS motorola milestone.

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    Im not sure the answer to your question, but I do have the YouTube app installed on my Droid 2, and I still cannot play videos. It tries to load and then says "Sorry, this video cannot be played. There was a problem while playing." every time. It was preinstalled when I bought my phone too.

    well, as it turns out, I was right, I deleted an app I needed. Unfortunately, some brainiac decided that apps pre-loaded on your phone don't need to be in the market, making it very difficult to FIX this problem.
    I did eventually find a copy of the APK through various google searches, and now I have the YouYube App again, and all is good with the world... or at least that particular problem...
