So this problem has been annoying me for quite some time. Whenever I select a link via Chrome( a YouTube link) a dialog pops up asking if I want to view the link in the browser or in the YouTube application. I always select the YouTube application and then proceed to select it as the default application to launch on any YouTube links.

So the problem is that the next time I click another YouTube link the dialog pops back up for me to select what action to perform. This doesn't only happen with YouTube but with other applications... I tried resetting all the applications to "default" and retried the process but it occurs again.

I understand that there are other posts but, those were all for older versions of android.

DEVICE - Samsung Note 3 (4.4.2)

Thanks in advance for any resolutions samthewildone

  • Can you please confirm what the default application is under the Application settings for their respective apps.

There are several types of Youtube links. So as long as the types differ the intent chooser will popup asking to choose the default. I suggest just keep ticking the "Use as Default" check box and select YouTube Application.
