    Sorry, it was kind of difficult to condense into a title. Basically, in most parts of the BeamNG program when you click a link, it opens that link in your default browser like it should.

    As you know, you can embed youtube videos into mods on the repository. You can watch these videos in the repository on the program, but if you tap the YouTube icon in the bottom right corner of the embedded video, you'll see that it opens an odd window with no title that is still somehow part of the BeamNG program, but it's somewhat of a restricted internet browser. I say restricted because it only allows you on youtube, but you can do anything on YouTube.

    Anyway this could possibly be exploited but mainly it's just weird, so I suggest converting it so these videos open in the default browser.

    here is one of my videos, it works fine for me. If the video i put in this post does not work that means the problem is on your end.

    no, i don't think you understood exactly what I said.

    It's not really any big issue, just odd.
    Here's how to replicate it (once the repository is back online ofc)
    1. Open in game repository
    2. Find a mod with a youtube video in the description
    3. Click it to view the description
    4. Click the "youtube" icon in the corner of the embedded video
    5. You're in a weird browser thing restricted to youtube.com, when it should simply open it in your default browser
