Just purchased Minitube for windows from your website and every time I click on a video it skips through all the videos without playing any of them only stopping on the odd one. Happens on my laptop running windows 7 and my desktop running Windows Vista. I have no problem running Minitube on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
It seems to me there is some sort of copy write issue because it does this with almost all music videos on You tube, but not with most cover videos or videos of other genres that the public have uploaded which makes the software unusable. Is there a fix?.Jan 4, 2015 at 9:30 pm #93424
This is also happening for me using Minitube 2.3.1Jan 6, 2015 at 3:22 am #93430
I am seeing the same thing as David. It doesn’t happen for all artist queries. For instance I tried searching for an artist “The Summer Set” and it skips through all videos quickly without playing any.
I am using the latest version of software 2.3.1
Please help.Jan 6, 2015 at 5:59 pm #93433
It works for me on 2.3.1 using the query “The Summer Set” on the Mac. Are you all on Windows?Jan 7, 2015 at 12:58 am #93434
Hi Flavio, thanks for the fast response. Yes i am using Win7Jan 7, 2015 at 9:57 am #93435
Ok. it actually happens on Win7 for “The Summer Set”. Let’s see what I can do…Jan 7, 2015 at 11:43 am #93436
It’a VLC bug. Tried replacing libvlc 2.1.5 with a 2.2 nigthly and it worked. If you know what you’re doing you could try for yourself:
– Download the latest 2.2 nightly from http://nightlies.videolan.org/build/win32/
– Uncompress it
– Go in [home]/AppData/Local/Minitube
– Create a folder named “Original”
– Move libvlc.dll, libvlccore.dll and the folder named “plugins” to “Original”
– Copy libvlc.dll, libvlccore.dll and the folder named “plugins” from the nightly archive
– Boom! It works.Jan 8, 2015 at 12:05 pm #93438
I repackaged 2.3.1. Just download again and install. And thanks for helping fix the bug!Jan 8, 2015 at 11:56 pm #93441
I uninstalled and then downloaded the latest build it’s still happening for me on Windows 7 :(Jan 9, 2015 at 12:13 am #93442
I also tried downloading the nightly and updating the appdata folder but it still keeps skippingJan 9, 2015 at 8:43 am #93447Jan 9, 2015 at 12:22 pm #93448
:( Uninstalled and downloaded via that link but still no luck, it just keeps skipping through the videosJan 9, 2015 at 4:55 pm #93449
I tried installing on a different Windows 7 machine and it works fine. Is it possible everything isn’t being deleted when I uninstall on the machine that’s not working?Apr 17, 2019 at 7:58 pm #97301
I jumped in to insert my 2 cents that I have exact same issue on 2.4 on Mac OS X 10.7.5 and 2.9 on Mac OS X 10.9.5. When I search by the keywords “training montage” and “hans zimmer” videos are skipped, however they aren’t if they are in results of the search by “daily wire” and “tree of logic”. That’s odd.Apr 18, 2019 at 6:06 pm #97302
The skipping happens to me as well, using 3.0 (Appstore version) on MacOS 13.6. There’s also new UI sluggishness that was introduced with 3.0, resulting in quite a lot of rage clicking when things don’t respond..Apr 24, 2019 at 7:15 pm #97327
Skipping happening to me also on Mac 10.14.4 (Direct download version). Was fine yesterday, but skips everything today. I was on 2.9 but have upgraded to 3, but still skips everything, including videos that played OK yesterday.Apr 24, 2019 at 8:17 pm #97328
i have the same problem like blodwyn, i cant play anything on my ubuntu 18.10, all video skips but yesterday it was ok.. im on the same version 3.0
i run it from the terminal and i get
[unknown] Cannot get video info
[unknown] QCoreApplication::postEvent: Unexpected null receiverApr 24, 2019 at 10:53 pm #97330
Similar issue, on Windows 10. Downloaded the 3.0 off the website here and tried the 2.3-nocache version that was mentioned as a prior fix (but unsurprisingly didn’t seem to work). Seems to happen with anything I search I tried “BoA” and “ERB” among other random searches.Apr 25, 2019 at 2:16 am #97332
The same issue here, Minitube 2.9 (and the same with 2.7 (3.0 does not start at all)) on Debian 9.9. Yesterday worked just fine, today suddenly started skipping through the results no matter what was searched for..Apr 25, 2019 at 8:09 am #97333
I have the same issue since yesterday. All worked fine for years since I bought it. I don’t think I’ve installed or updated any software in my PCApr 25, 2019 at 1:34 pm #97335
Same issue on Arch Linux. When I launch version 3.0 from a terminal session and attempt to play a video I get the following:
[unknown] QCoreApplication::postEvent: Unexpected null receiver
[unknown] Cannot get video infoApr 25, 2019 at 2:03 pm #97336
Same problem over Manjaro and Mint, v2.9, v3.0, v2.9 flatpak.
Videos play ok using VLC.Maybe and issue about the request to youtube servers.
I’m in Madrid, Spain.Apr 26, 2019 at 2:35 am #97341
Seems to have started working again. My videos are playing fine now. Hope it lasts.Apr 26, 2019 at 8:06 am #97343
It’s working Ok today.May 4, 2019 at 10:41 pm #97375
Same problem. using latest v3 demo on macbook high sierra and it just skips though the vids without playing anything. Useless app in it’s current state.May 11, 2019 at 6:13 pm #97398
For Mac users I may have found a way to get around this problem. When I get the “Skipping videos” problem, typically every few days, I delete the Minitube cache folder in my Library folder. I’ve done this twice now and it fixed it both times. When you relaunch Minitube it rebuilds the cache folder, so no harm is caused by deleting it.
The folder to be deleted is: Macintosh HD/Users/YourUserName/Library/Caches/Flavio Tordini/Minitube
Hope this helps
