    Hmm. Is this just one video, or all videos on YouTube?

    Is it the YouTube app, or in a browser. I know some videos are blocked from being viewed on mobile, but it usually specifies that reason.

    It might be the browser that those apps are transferring you to. Are you using the stock browser?

    You may try Dolphin HD, set the user agent to Desktop, make it your default browser and then try it again. That's the only thing I could think is causing this, is the browser being seen as a mobile browser.

    Another suggestion would be to try another video player such as MX Player (and the codex). It's possible that your video player doesn't recognize the video type.

    Off Subject, I like that circle style indicators on the top right of your notification bar. What app/mod/theme is that from?

    hi, it works fine with these video players but the problem only with youtube video attached with other application such as (Twitter)

    The other subject: the theme called Vivid lime, i founded it in XDA . Sorry i lost the thread where is.

    With in Dolphin HD:
    Press the settings button (bottom left of the phone)
    Select 'Settings' from the pop up menu
    Select 'User Agent' (on top of the screen)
    Select 'Desktop'

    Try to go into Settings > Applications > Manage applications, All tab and find the Browser and use the button Clear defaults if it's available. Hopefully it is and you can clear it, then the next time you tell it to open a video it should ask what you want to open it with.

    I have the same issue now. Have to watch all videos thru the YouTube app. Watching videos is becoming a hassle. It's either this...


    Or this...
