This doesn't reproduce for me on 41 Beta (even after a clean uninstall/install).

Flaviu, could you tell me what "general.useragent.override.youtube.com" is for you in Beta? Also, navigator.userAgent? (echo.opera.com is the easiest way to grab that).
(oops, forgot ni?)

I can't repro on my N7 or my Asus Transformer.

Flaviu, are there other devices you can repro on?

Similar to bug 1190831

This issue does note reproduce anymore, tested on Sony Xperia Z2 (Android 5.1), on all branches.
Tested with Youtube app enabled and disabled and in both cases it works fine.
When youtube app is enabled, video is launched in the youtube app.
When youtube app is disabled, video is launched embed in the browser.

Will close this for now.
