    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.

    Apparently both are not installed on my system and i cannot install one of them. I always get package not found…

    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 -.-

    I startet minitube through a terminal and piced a random video from the youtube startpage. This is what i got :

    “franz@pc:~$ minitube

    Then minitube froze and i had to kill the process…

    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.

    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…

    I tried a few things but couldn’t find something to fix it. Hopefully the developer finds a solution…

    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.

    Hi,
    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.
    Nice day.
    Cyril

    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

    Nice day.
    Cyril

    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.

    Cheers,
