Open Youtube links in the app

  • Hello,

    Opera is my favourite browser on Android, especially with the last feature you added: Force enable zoom, that's just awesome.

    One thing that I find REALLY annoying though are the Youtube videos that are directly played in the browser instead of the app.

    Couldn't you add an option so we can open the Youtube links in the app as it is way more convenient to watch the videos and read the comments with the app.

    I looked up the forums but except fiddling with the user agent or the off road settings, I didn't find anything conclusive.

    Thank you.

  • I think there should be possibility to choose which app will open youtube videos

  • I think that is great option to watch youtube videos in opera. Please don't change anything

  • Second to that.

  • Dear neodraig, that's exactly what I'm experiencing. I prefer Opera as browser on Android, but want to watch YouTube-videos within the YT app, it simply works better.
    Thanks for at least giving us the option.
    Mike

  • I agree. I tend to open links from Twitter and see this. Somehow using chrome opens YouTube app, so this could be something that could be done as well.

  • Have oprion to open youtube externally would be fine :)

  • +1

    Opera for Android not launching YouTube (and other external apps) is the ONLY thing that keeps Opera from completely replacing Chrome for me.

  • Just add this option already, this is the biggest issue I have with my lovly Opera. I want open links/videos in my dedicated apps instead in opera web version, escpecially youtube videos.

    Please respond that you listening community suggestions.

  • As someone already commented, this is the ONLY reason I still use Chrome instead of Opera. This happens also with Playstore links: they open in the web version inside opera.

    The YouTube mobile site is terrible, and so is the playstore web version.

    Please, add an option to open these links in their native app!

  • I finally switched to Yandex browser. It also has a good line break and turbo, the handling is fine and it opens links with the right external apps. Combined it with the desktop version, which replaced Chrome.

  • Only as an option. I 've uninstalled all unnecessary apps like YouTube consuming precious space. Besides comments are being shown at the bottom of each video.

  • Same here, would love to have the option at least. That and the fact that the LastPass app can't fill in logins as with chrome (with opera you can only copy the password or username) is the only reason I haven't done a full switch.
