Minitube reaches version 1.0

Minitube 1.0 is finally here. It fixes some content from major labels failing to play and adds the ability to play Full HD (1080p) videos when available. This version also adds the ability copy the video stream URL, so you can download the video with an external program.
A whole slew of new translations are available: Romanian, Greek, Dutch, Arabic, Portuguese, Finnish and Bulgarian. Thanks to the translators and to all the people that keep suggesting enhancements and spreading the word out.

After downloading and setting up Minitube 1.0, you may want to make a donation so I can have free beer tomorrow evening in Rome.

    i agree, getting my favs and adding new favs would be awesome. actually it’s very boring to open the youtube site if i want to add a new fav.

    anyway, super great app!
