    Hi,

    The iPhone automatically tries to open youtube videos with youtube.app when you click on the link.

    The only exception is when you click on a link that is inside youtube.com

    This lame restriction makes everything harder, because you can't just browse youtube and click whatever video you want in order to watch it.

    Since we don't have copy and paste either, we can not use the info that is provided in the video page.


    One solution I've found is using google. I simplu put this command in the search:

    site:youtube.com

    Together with some keywork that is related to the video I want to find. Google will automatically display links to all youtube's videos that match the supplied keyword.
    If you click from google the video will be opened by YouTube.app.

    Note that some videos aren't available for the iPhone yet. So you'll get a "can not play video" error in this case.


    Good luck.

    Your tip work pretty well, though it's a little troublesome. Apple's fault!
    And for the videos I like, not many can play in youtube.app
