Just tested on my end and I can’t seem to reproduce the issue you’re describing. Works in both desktop and mobile displays.
It seems as though the browser/site is asking whether or not it can open the video in the YouTube app (with the address listed) but when you elect to open it on the website, it inserts the wrong address (as I believe it’s a specific URL intended for the YT app). Does this only happen for YouTube or do other sites that stream video also have the same behavior?
If I visit youtube.com, the app automatically displays in desktop mode. Streaming video works without issue.
If I visit m.youtube.com, the site attempts and notifies me that it’s redirected me to the desktop site. There’s a banner option that says Continue with m.youtube.com which, when selected, will instead open the YouTube app on my iPad and play the video.
Further, when I choose Request mobile site, regardless of what occurs, the site still renders the same (desktop view), when I go back to the option to request desktop/mobile site, it now shows Request desktop site – as if it is showing me the mobile site.
I think this may have more to do with how Youtube determines how to render their site/content by device. Can either or both of you confirm whether or not, when you view the site in Mobile view, does it actually display in mobile view? Or does it look the same as it does when in Desktop?
Strangely I’m not able to view the desktop version of YouTube in Brave: when I type in www.youtube.com it automatically changes to the mobile site (m.youtube.com) regardless if the browser has the ‘always request desktop site’ enabled or not
