Selecting youtube app from email?
In my previous android devices when I got an email with a youtube link embedded, I was able to select either the youtube app or the web to play it in and then make it a default.
How come on the X it automatically opens it up in the web where most of the time I get an error saying the video cannot play on the device. I would like to make the youtube app the default.
Anyone know how to change this?

Re: Selecting youtube app from email?
this is HTC's workaround to the Apple patent violation.
To fix it so you get a popup asking what app to open when you click on a link you need to do a couple of things
1) Root your HTC One X
2) use a root aware file manager like root explorer and rename htclinkifydispatcher.apk to htclinkifydispatcher.bak it is located in /system/app
3) clear defaults for whatever browser you are using
4) reboot your phone
