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. – user285oo6 Sep 2 '14 at 6:54

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.
