HTC One S - YouTube Links
As it turns out there is an Apple lawsuit that forced HTC to implement the App Associations in US ROMs. This breaks a lot of link functionality in Android, but there is a workaround if you are rooted. HTC had to put an app that intercepts all taps, and redirect you to the app you've chosen in settings. Its as simple as moving/deleting the offending HTCLinkifyDispatcher.apk
Anyone else run into an issue with YouTube links? It seems that all weblinks are handled by the chosen browser, be it Chrome or "Internet".
The behavior on my Galaxy Nexus was that I would tap a YouTube link from an app, or webpage and it would present me with the option to load it in a browser OR the YouTube app.
On the HTC One S (T-Mobile), no matter what I do, I cannot get it to present the option to take me to the native YouTube app (which is a better experience). I've changed the streaming settings around, cleared all app defaults and I still get taken to m.youtube.com rather than having an option to tap the YouTube app.
This is totally frustrating, and I hope I am not missing something obvious! I assume this is related to Sense 4.0 "app associations". Any way around this?
