URL to invoke YouTube player of device

Hi,

 

I am developing a mobile website targetting smartphone platforms.

I need to know the URL format which will trigger an event and launch the default video player application/YouTube application in a device to play the video I am giving a URL of.

 

I have successfully done it for iPhone and Android, now was wishing if something similar exists for BB.

 

Can anyone please help?

Re: URL to invoke YouTube player of device

This would have to be implemented in the YouTube app directly but currentlyt here is now View target, just Share.

If you have the URL of the video already, how about just embedding a <video> element, or invoking the browser to the video URL? I guess it depends what exactly it is that you have in the URL; a general video link or a YouTube video link?
