Anyone else notice this on Nokia 920?
On desktop view I can watch videos just fine, but on the mobile site it says "you need to install an app for this task. Would you like to search for one in the store?"
If you try to search for one in the store it comes up with no results. Pretty lame considering Bing and the Microsoft Youtube app both send you to the mobile site to view videos.

Yeah, I'm trying to figure this out, too. I mean, sure you can just say "Use MetroTube," but it's not that simple. I use MetroTube, but when I'm redirected to a video in mobile YouTube I can't watch it. I don't want to have to copy the URL in MetroTube and watch it that way. It takes too long when I want to quickly watch something. I didn't have this problem on my 900 and I have the stupid YouTube thing installed, but it still pops up. I'll try reinstalling that YouTube plugin.

Re-installing won't work. I think this is a Google FU WP thing. It started over the weekend for me. The YouTube app is simply a shell for the mobile site. Just change the http://m. to http://www. and the video will play fine.
You can no longer use the google sync method to get multiple calendars from google to sync with your phone either.
As other have stated, MetroTube is pretty good.

I found out the culprit regarding the youtube "app" not working on my Lumia 920. I had the website preference in Internet Explorer set to "desktop version". When I changed it back to "mobile version", the youtube app worked just like it did before.

It'd be helpful if we could select default app for things like videos. I use the app for this site often, and when they post a video in their reviews, I can no longer open it.
Of course, MS wont let us change defaults to things so were outta luck. I guess they figure since they lock down and limit us to their versions of things like email that we don't need such an option.
Switch IE to mobile is a horrible resolution. I like to keep IE in desktop mode and shouldn't have to change it for this
