    having a rather big issue with the 3.0 build. – it just won’t start. tried removing, reinstalling etc. – went from 2.8 since 2.9 had big issue with continuos playback and did not want to stop playing video.
    But the 3.0 simply won’t run at all. (it appears the timestamp for the application in usr/share/applications/ is from 2011 and not 2019? )

    This appears to be the case on my machine too. Minitube 3.0 won’t start, because of Qt 5.11. This is what I get when I run Minitube from the command-line:
    minitube: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ versionQt_5.11′ not found (required by minitube)`

    I tried installing Qt 5.11 through PPAs, but it throws the same error.

    Same error message, here too. (/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `Qt_5.11′ not found (required by minitube)
    I`m running Ubuntu 18.04.

    The only solution i could find was to upgrade Ubuntu to 18.10 to upgrade QT5 to ver 11+, Installing QT5.11 on 18.04 could break your system.
    Upgraded my system and v3.0 works fine.

    Ubuntu 18.04 is a long term release…
    This bug should be fixed as it is not recommanded to upgrade to 18.10 on a production machine.
    I hope a workaround will be find (I did not managed to make it work so far).

    After upgrading to v3.0, stopped working. I tried to go back to the previous version and thats asking an API when is wasn’t before. Is there a noob friendly tutorial that shows how to add the API? The how-to i have found isn’t very clear

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:beineri/opt-qt-5.12.0-bionic

    sudo apt -y install qt512-meta-minimal

    source /opt/qt512/bin/ && minitube
