    Hi, I was looking this app some time before. I installed deb package using Ubuntu Software Center, in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I can hear audio from searched videos, however I can not watch the video, it just appears a green screen at the right side.

    hello, you could try switch “hardware acceleration” off in your browser.

    Thanks for your answer,
    I have the same problem here.
    I don’t see any “hardware acceleration” toggle in the minitube menu.
    Do I miss something?

    Hi there,
    I am answering myself :-)
    To inactivate hardware acceleration on ubuntu 18.04 I had to remove the gstreamer acceleration library (gstreamer1.0-vaapi) that is used by minitube for video rendering.
    Then relaunch minitube and it should work.
