[Q] Youtube and Opera Mobile Problem
I have a standard Kindle Fire, I have not unlocked it or modified the software in any way. I sideloaded Opera Mobile, and have found it to be a big step up over the default Silk browser. I however have run into a problem using it to view Youtube videos.
If I leave the user agent as "tablet", I'm redirected to the mobile version of the video. When I click to play, I get an error message saying vdn.youtube is an unregistered protocol, instead of either playing in-browser or playing in the Kindle video player. I've done some searching, and apparently m.yahoo.com is trying to play the video in the default Android Youtube application which is not on the Fire nor available in the Kindle App store. Anyone know where I can find this in order to sideload it? Or know what to do to get it to launch the video in the Fire video player?
I can set the user agent to "desktop" and play back videos that way, but they playback in the browser window, which is less than ideal and has performance issues. So that isn't a solution.
