Can I avoid the built in YouTube app like the plague?

    I've taken a liking to the mobile YouTube site as I can reply to comments/click links, all that stuff. And since there's no indication the built in YouTube app will be updated on the horizon, id like to just stick to the mobile site. My only problem comes from when I click a link that'll take me to YouTube, it takes me to the built in YouTube app. I want it to take me to the site in safari. This makes it hard to reply to comments when I get the email telling me someone replied, click it and it takes me to the regular app. Anyway I can avoid this?

    Go to Settings -> General -> Restrictions
    Turn off YouTube.

    I love you. So so much. I'm baking a whole batch of oatmeal raisin cookies today dedicated to you. But since you're not here...i guess i'll eat them myself

    I'm looking for the same thing... for links to open m.youtube rather than the crappy app. Unfortunately using the restrictions setting just kills the link rather than redirecting to the mobile site.

    Any other ideas?

    Ok, I just installed ProTube from Cydia as well as a tweak called "Open In Protube" and that makes links in Safari work without opening the stock youtube app. Nice!
