Description:

Minitube is a native YouTube client. With it you can watch YouTube videos in a new way: you type a keyword, Minitube gives you an endless video stream. Minitube does not require the Flash Player.

Minitube is not about cloning the original Youtube web interface, it aims to create a new TV-like experience.

minitube is in Ubuntu's development version now. A Karmic backport is in my ppa:

The Karmic package needs testing, because I do not have this version here anymore. Thanks.

Thank you for this perfet application :-) really great job. Two things would be great though - allow to watch vide from URL. As it is now, you can only search for videos by it's name and then see the video from the results. But many times (all the time for me) I dont browse youtube, but stumble upon a video whcih I would like to see - off course the URL is posted. So I have to open the link in browser, see the name of the video,copy it to minitube, then search, then watch. If there was an option to take video from URL the above mentioned procedure would not be needed.

And the other thing - it would be great to download the currently running video just by cliking the button :-) - this would be a bonus...

but I think what I mentioned above is really usefull - would be great to see it :-)

Anyways, thank you for your efforts, I really lke your work!!

to me this is strange behavior

if I'm watching a video and wish to see search results in left panel switching tabs shouldn't change the video playing to the top video in the clicked tab - of course this is my opinion (ymmv)

It would be nice if you could add an option to mirror the video horizontally.

suggestion - that the left hand search panel can be hidden once playing starts

also, couldn't move the position bar to fast forward on a video not yet fully played

thanks,

Just installed and I am now in love with this app. Works just fine!

Download support and Bookmarking would be great! Either way, thank you!

It's better now, but we need something like a "loading bar" to pause the video and wait until start watching it. Otherwise, the video stops.

Sorry, I don't understand your suggestion. Could you try to be more clear?

In youtube.com, there's a "red bar"... somekind of "buffer". So you can press Pause and wait until the buffer is full (or at least a part) and then start playing.

OK, now I get it. It is not currently possible to do it with Phonon, because it does not report the buffering progress correctly. But you can still press pause, the video should continue to buffer (Though I'm not 100% sure...)

Ummm no, it stops buffering when you press pause. I just tested it.

That seems to be my problem as well even after switching to the other backend in kde 4.

Thank you for the packages. I added the link to the Minitube download page. Any chance of getting the RPMs into an officially supported repository?

Hmm, I don't know. As I can see, it is already in the Contrib repository. This is a semi-official repository (more official than others ;-) ). It has the same rules like the main distribution. But as I said, I don't know if there were plans to bring it in the main distribution.

You're likely using the Xine engine. Try to use Gstreamer as recommended.

Specifically what?

In the KDE 4 system settings you can change the sound playback from xine to gstreamer phonon. Hope this helps.

When I select a video from the search results, I only see the first frame of the video and it doesn't play. What should I check?

I'm on Fedora 11 64 bits, KDE 4.3.1
