Watch YouTube videos with the app instead?

  • I have Opera mobile v.27 and I was wondering if it's possible to make it so that when I open links to YouTube videos or click a video, it opens the app and plays them as it does in Opera Classic.

  • Off-road does that, just enable off-road mode. Besides, a simple test with Google Services 5.0 can reveal that Youtube v10 inject extra 3 (+ offline check) Google processes when wearables&location are not engaged bloating the RAM with 15MB. Me don't like that, with 512MB onboard I need at least 100 free at startup and with current configuration I've got only 75 after first run, Opera can't run properly in these conditions.

  • Off-road did make it use YouTube. Thank you very much for the help. I just prefer it uses YouTube instead, as its quality seems to go higher than the default player, but it's understandable that it plays like it does to save on RAM.
