Chrome no longer opening Youtube links in YT App, only browser.

I've had this problem for a few months just kind of let it slide. Got 7 plus beginning of the year after 5 years using Notes, initially I was able to use Youtube App by default when I clicked youtube links in Google Chrome, but since a few months ago it never does this nor can I find anywhere in Chrome or Youtube App settings to change the default.

Both Chrome and YT are updated. It's a bit of a pain in the butt because the app is so much better than browser. I turn off screen rotation so it's usually locked in portrait. With Youtube app I can just hit full screen and it automatically goes to landscape for the video. With it only opening youtube links in browser, I have to turn off screen rotation lock everytime to watch it in full, not to mention the app is better for being able to choose what picture quality I want to watch it in.
