when I view a page on my iPad and there is a YouTube video embedded, if I click it I can watch it directly within safari. This way, though, I cannot favorite the video, I cannot know the title of it or share it. Only thing I can do is watch it.

I'd like to be able to open the link to video in native youtube app, or at least open the YouTube web page of that video.

Is there a way to do it?

There's a way in iOS 5, but I don't know what happens in iOS 6 and 7, after they removed the YouTube app…

In iOS 5, at the top of the video is the video's title. That title is a hyperlink — tapping it opens the video in the iOS 5 YouTube app.
