Minitube it’s an application to watch youtube movie without using Flash or your browser, i’ve talked about it in a former article.
But from some time there were problems and the app was not able anymore to load properly the youtube video (this was with version 1.4.3 from around 1 month ago).
Flavio released on 5 of august a new release, the 1.5 that fixed this problem
Here I am with a new release that fixes the problem and adds a few features. Thanks to Mike Holenderski for emailing me details about the YouTube changes that broke Minitube. Besides watching videos again, you can now drag’n’drop YouTube links from your browser to the Minitube window. Also, Minitube is now more tolerant about which URLs are actually YouTube URLs.
The binaries of minitube 1.5 can be downloaded from minitube official page
Or if you are using Ubuntu (from 10.04 to 11.04) you can use a PPA maintained by Ferramosca Roberto (from the famous italian site: http://www.lffl.org/).
To use it just open your teminal and write:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/minitube sudo aptitude update sudo aptitude upgrade (if you already had minitube) sudo aptitude install minitube (to install it)
Have fun with this new release of minitube, one of my favorite desktop application.
