In the absence of an official YouTube app for Windows 10, myTube has become king for those looking for a native experience. The only rub is that you can't set the app to directly open when you click a YouTube link around the web. However, a new browser extension from a third-party developer is offering up a solution to that minor annoyance (via Neowin).
Called simply myTube! Companion, the extension lets you quickly redirect any YouTube link you open in your browser to the myTube app. The extension was created by a developer by the name of Arlo Godfrey, and it's available for all major browsers, including Edge, Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. Once installed, the extension will ask you any time you open a YouTube link whether you'd like to watch the video in myTube, and it will then open it in the app.
MyTube Companion is open source, and developers can dive into the code on GitHub. If you just want to give it a shot for yourself, however, you can snag it on the Microsoft Store, Chrome Web Store, and the Firefox Add-ons page now. For opera users, you can install the Chrome version of the extension for your browser.
It's a small addition, but the extension will likely be a welcome workaround for heavy MyTube users. For more, you can check out the developer's work at their website.
