    Why cant the Evo open youtube videos on the phone video player instead of the that crappy htc sense flash player. I mean if I see a youtube video embedded on a web page i would like to be able to play and watch the video on the video media player instead of flash player

    If it's a youtube video, then you can make it play with youtube.
    However, if it's a flash video, then HTC's flash lite player will open.

    Go to menu-->settings-->applications-->HTC Flash player-->clear defaults
    ........menu-->settings-->applications-->Youtube-->clear defaults

    Next time it should ask you which app you want to open the video with.

    I tried it and I didn't get an option either. It was greyed out.

    Hmm. Then that means no application uses it to open on default. Either way, try to open a video. Does it ask you to choose which app to open?

    Do the clear defaults thing just for YouTube then. You may be tryingto view a flash video and not a YouTube one.

    when i go to m.youtube.com and try to watch a video it takes me straight to htc flash player, it doesn't give me the option.

    Now when I use xScope browser it does give me the option, the only thing is that xScope doesn't flash video content when they are embedded on a web page
