MiniTube 1.7

minitube-logocripMiniTUBE 1.7  for Mandriva 2010.2 & 2011.

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 strives to create a new TV-like experience.
Minitube is in its early stages. It lacks many features I planned for it. That said, it works.
Try it, report your experience in the comments and spread the word.

What's new?

  • This release features clickable usernames in the playlist, so you can start watching the video author’s channel with a click.
  • Another much requested feature is a “Manually start playing” option. It allows you to pick the right video before starting playback and to try other searches without interrupting the current video.

  • Especially for the Mac, I worked on enhancing the visual style to be more pleasant and feel more native. Now the app doesn’t quit on window close and minimizes on Command+M. The seek bar and volume slider sport a new style and the search box is the rounded, native one.

  • The “Stop after this video” option can be useful in many situations, I use it with my kid so I can pretend that the cartoons are over.

  • Other minor enhancements include a window “Float on Top” option and the ability to skip to the previous video (with keyboard shortcut).
