Minitube 1.1

Minitube is a native YouTube client for Windows (soon), Linux and Mac OS X. 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.

Like we told you a few days ago, YouTube changed something which broke all the applications for downloading or playing YouTube videos. This includes VLC 1.1.1, youtube-dl and of course, Minitube.

This is why a new Minitube version was released today so if you want a working Minitube, you'll have to install the latest 1.1.

Besides fixing the YouTube issue, Minitube 1.1 also comes with a toolbar restyling and fixes moving more than one video down or up in the playlist.

Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, 10.04 Lucid Lynx and 10.10 Maverick Meerkat users can install Minitube 1.1 from the WebUpd8 PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install minitube

Or you can manually download the Ubuntu .deb files.
