Hey there, i am using minitube for a few years now and i like it very much :D
But now on Ubuntu 13.04 i can hardly watch a video. With Ubuntu 12.10 (64-bit and minitube 2.0) i had some issues that videos played for 3-8 seconds, then minitube froze for a few seconds, the video would start again but without any freezes or problems.
But now on Ubuntu 13.04 videos play for ~3 seconds and minitube freezes. Regardless how long i wait, minitube stays frozen and “dark”. Sometimes videos play without a problem, but 9 out of 10 time minitube just freezes. I am using a 64-bit Ubuntu 13.04 (restricted extras are installed) and minitube 2.0. I already tried the 12.04/12.10 workaround but nothing changes.
Would be nice to get minitube working on 13.04

I’m using Minitube on 13.04 since yesterday and it works great. You may try using phonon-vlc and removing phonon-gstreamer.Apr 30, 2013 at 5:44 pm #67704FranzGuest
Apparently both are not installed on my system and i cannot install one of them. I always get package not found…Apr 30, 2013 at 5:51 pm #67705FranzGuest
Oh, sorry, i think you ment phonon-backend-gstreamer and phonon-backend-vlc.
If i remove phonon-backend-gstreamer it removes minitube also. Then i installed phonon-backend-vlc and installed minitube again, but phonon-backend-gstreamer was installed with minitube 2.0 and i got the same behavior -.-Apr 30, 2013 at 6:05 pm #67712FranzGuest
I startet minitube through a terminal and piced a random video from the youtube startpage. This is what i got :

Then minitube froze and i had to kill the process…Apr 30, 2013 at 10:00 pm #67758FlavioKeymaster
Yes, the Debian package has a hard dependency on GStreamer. That’s not really a Minitube problem but a rather a packaging decision. You can use the binaries on the site or build by yourself.Apr 30, 2013 at 10:37 pm #67770FranzGuest
I did build it myself, but still the same problem. I have no ideo why, but short videos (1-2 minutes) sometimes work perfectly fine, but longer ones never work. Always at ~3 seconds the video stopps, minitube freezes and i have to kill the minitube process…May 2, 2013 at 11:15 pm #68425MoussabGuest
I have the same issue (ubuntu 13.04 64 bits), is there any solution ?May 6, 2013 at 9:18 am #69113FranzGuest
I tried a few things but couldn’t find something to fix it. Hopefully the developer finds a solution…May 24, 2013 at 8:19 pm #76937ShoonGuest
As soon as I use minitube it probably seems to work great but after I use computer for a while, minitube starts to freeze. I hope someone fix it ASAP.May 30, 2013 at 11:32 am #80017CyrilGuest
I found this topic because i have an issue too with mini-tube on Ubuntu 13.04.
I have a loading but at least nothing happen. No freeze.
After i read you, i search for the windows version and i use it with wine.
And it’s work great. I prefer native applications but while the developer find a way to fix it,
i do that.
If that can help someone.

I edit my previous post.
I had try a lot of version of minitube. 1.6, 1.8, 1.9, 2.0. Offical and cracked (I know it’s bad ^^).
At least same issue. Not work and freeze.
But i found a very good and better alternative : Gmediafinder.
You can change the video quality (useful if you have a slow connection like me)
and you can watch videos on a lot of hosts.
For installation (sources => http://www.linuxandlife.com/2012/04/gmediafinder-better-alternative-for.html):
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:s-lagui/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gmediafinder

Same issue, can play for 10 seconds then total lockup then I have to kill minitube. Using Ubuntu 13.04-64bit. Can play some videos but as mentioned above 9 videos out of 10 make Mini-Tube freeze and lockup.
