Subject [jira] [Closed] (CB-10868) iOS only - Can't open youtube links in _system when youtube app is installed
Date Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:01:20 GMT


jcesarmobile closed CB-10868.
    Resolution: Not A Problem
      Assignee: jcesarmobile

Closing because this is not really a cordova issue, it seems a problem on the youtube app.

I've been able to reproduce the issue a few times, but it´s working other times with the
exact same code.

BTW, you should use 
{code}'', '_system');

> I created a blank app, with the system browser plugin and attempted to open a link to
youtube with the following javascript:
> ('', '_system')
> This works fine if the youtube app is not installed, but once the youtube app is installed,
literally nothing happens. This appears to be a problem introduced with the new youtube 17.0
version that was released March 1st. There's no javascript errors in the console. No errors
in Xcode's debugger output. Other links work fine. IE: ('', '_system')
; The key to it is the youtube app being installed on the phone. Removing the youtube app
then opens the link into the browser. The prompt ("open this link in youtube") is not appearing,
and as such is causing the issue. 
> I am running cordova V 6.0.0, cordova-plugin-inappbrowser 1.2.1 and cordova-plugin-whitelist
> Cordova browser is on 4.1.0, iOS is on 4.0.1
> It may also be worth noting that it works fine on android - the problem only exists on
