“href” value in HTML to open video in youtube app or market (Google Play) on Android

I’m making a Web Page that shows 360 videos, but i recently noticed that 360 functionality in the android browser is not supported, and because of this the video wont shows correctly, so after searching a lot i found that the best option is to try to open the video in the YouTube app making use of an “Android Intent” explained in this developer tutorial:


  • Hide keypad in android while touching outside Edit Text Area
  • android: difference between ACTION_UP and ACTION_POINTER_UP
  • Simulating palette swaps with OpenGL Shaders (in LibGDX)
  • Android Days between two dates
  • Add Shortcut for android application To home screen On button click
  • Borderless Button on Pre-Lollipop with Support Library
  • So i need to construct the href address for a YouTube video, but unfortunately i don’t know android programming and also can’t find the YouTube App xml manifest to fill the options, can anyone help me?

       HOST/URI-path <-- I think here needs to be the video URL? 
          package=com.google.android.youtube.player.YouTubeIntents; <-- Is this the correct package? or should i use com.google.android.youtube.player? 
          action=createPlayVideoIntentWithOptions(context, UUweNrpFTwA, true, true); <-- Dont know what to put in context field 
          category=[string]; <-- Is category needed? if so what category should i place here?
          component=[string]; <-- Is component needed?
          scheme=youtube; <-- Is this the correct scheme?

    Any help or tutorial will be greatly appreciated… Thanks!!

    1) Intent solution :

    <a href="
    ">youtube or market</a>


    Maybe you need to remove spaces in href attribut:

    <a href="intent://8xn9iq3lG_w/#Intent;scheme=vnd.youtube;package=com.google.android.youtube;S.browser_fallback_url=market://details?id=com.google.android.youtube;end;">youtube or market</a>


    2) Link solution :

    You get more information in Settings > Apps > Youtube > Open by default > Supported links:

    See: https://youtu.be/8xn9iq3lG_w and try, here: http://output.jsbin.com/tubozokebe/

    <a target="_blank" href="https://youtu.be/8xn9iq3lG_w">link: https://youtu.be/8xn9iq3lG_w</a> or
