    My favourite feature or windows phone is that i can play youtube videos in desktop mode. This mean i was limited to just the mobile selection.
    Since the 8.1 Update it seems that the support has been removed. Now i can only open youtube up in mobile mode. Are they removing this feature permanently or is it just a bug? windows 7,7.5,7.8 & 8 all allow you to play youtube videos meant only for a computer.

    I'm not sure to understand everything from your post. Why don't you use an app to reach YouTube ?

    When a user uploads videos to youtube they have the option for what devices it supports. Many videos on youtube do no support the mobile platform and are pc only. In the previous updates being in desktop mode tricks youtube into thinking your a pc, now it only recognizes it as mobile. The youtube apps all get recognized as mobile and can only view mobile ready videos. Windows 7,7.5,7.8 & 8 support youtube in desktop mode unlike 8.1. Im wondering if this feature has been removed in the update or since the update is not official yet maybe its a bug.
