    I am dealing with a really annoying issue, lately anytime I try to open a link to a youtube video my browser always launches instead of the youtube app, this also happens with links to market apps they dont give me a choice, I have used the default clearing functions and tried out a few apps I've seen reccomended but nothing helps, in most cases in these default setting apps when I try to pick youtube for streaming video it dosen't even give me the choice. I am lost and want to see what I can do before attempting a factory reset.
    Please help.

    I just noticed that today... Wonder if it started occurring with the recent update? Any time I used to click on a YouTube video it would take me to the app but today I noticed it goes directly to the browser. Wonder if anyone else has noticed this issue?

    Is it the stock browser?

    If so you should be able to go to Settings> Applications> Select all apps

    and find the browser that keeps coming up by default

    Select it and then select clear defaults.

    That should give you the prompt next time you select a youtube video.

    did you also try clearing defaults on the youtube app?

    I would try clearing defaults on any and all apps that could possibly have any relation to the links you click.

    EDIT: get default app manager and it will give a list of all apps that have defaults set. And will allow you to clear them also I believe.
