I’ve installed Minitube 2.1 through the Ubuntu softwarecenter, and everything works fine except that it will never go on to play the next video and instead just repeats the first one over and over again.
I looked at the “common problems” thread and tried removing phonon-backend-xine, but it is a virtual package that can’t be removed.
I tried to remove other xine related packages by removing some that I found through “dpkg -l | grep xine”, but still no difference. Am I missing something obvious, or is this a bug?Jul 3, 2013 at 2:20 pm #86095MondaneGuest
I have the same problem with this version. Running Ubuntu 13.04 64bit.Jul 4, 2013 at 8:40 am #86123Alexey KGuest
I have the same problem. Operating system – Ubuntu 12.04, 64bitJul 4, 2013 at 1:39 pm #86132MikeGuest
Same problem here with Minitube 2.1 and Ubuntu 13.04, repeats same video over an dover unless manually skipJul 4, 2013 at 9:52 pm #86152
Ok this is somewhat embarassing for me, ’cause I switched to the “myapps” thing in the USC just to avoid problems like this. Fact is the Canonical employee that packaged Minitube used Phonon GStreamer while I explicitely asked for Phonon VLC.
I already contacted them and was assured that it will be dealt with ASAP. So stay tuned and remember to remove “phonon-backend-gstreamer” when the package is updated.Jul 5, 2013 at 12:46 pm #86183MikeGuest
Great news! looking forward to updateJul 7, 2013 at 11:39 am #86250TomGuest
Thanks for the quick feedback!
Just got an update from the softwarecenter, removed phonon-backend-gstreamer but the videos still keep repeating.Jul 8, 2013 at 10:23 am #86278MondaneGuest
Update didn’t fix it for me :(.Jul 10, 2013 at 5:47 am #86346gazGuest
HI Update didn’t solve the problem for me either. This is a great piece of software beside this problem.Using Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit.Jul 10, 2013 at 11:08 am #86357MikeGuest
Issue resolved for me, you must also remove phonon-backend-gstreamer and restart minitube after the updateJul 10, 2013 at 1:19 pm #86364TomGuest
That’ strange, like I said I removed phonon-backend-gstreamer but it is still repeating.Jul 10, 2013 at 1:58 pm #86368GazGuest
And I to removed phonon-backend-gstreamer as per instructions. GazJul 13, 2013 at 2:04 pm #86492BrandonGuest
Had the repeating problem after downloading. Removed orginal verion and got the latest in software center.
Ran: sudo apt-get remove phonon-backend-gstreamer
Problem fixed. No more single song repeats! Thanks for solving the issue.Jul 15, 2013 at 10:01 am #86554Gerhard BurgerGuest
sudo apt-get remove phonon-backend-gstreamer
indeed solves the issue, but how is this a proper solution if you want to install other packages that depend on phonon-backend-gstreamer?! For one the kubuntu-desktop package depends on it, so this ‘solution’ won’t work for Kubuntu users…Jul 15, 2013 at 8:15 pm #86574TomGuest
Also there are still some of us, for whom this fix does not work.
Does Minitube keep a log or anything so we could provide some more helpfull information?Jul 16, 2013 at 1:00 pm #86591mikeGuest
Is phonon-backend-gstreamer also a dependency for musique ?Jul 20, 2013 at 8:12 am #86675mc4manGuest
It’s been pretty well established that atm minitube works better with the vlc backend & that’s what most users should use, *ubuntu or otherwise.
As far as comments concerning kubuntu – only 1 package actually depends on the gstreamer backend, ‘kubuntu-active’ & it’s just a meta package so no big deal to remove. The rest are just have the gst backend as a recommends.
Unfortunately for non kubuntu users there is no way to configure phonon to use a specific backend when more than 1 is installed & it will default to the gst one.
That’s why it needs to be removed.
(whether users of recent kubuntu/kde4 can configure backends I don’t know, if not then that’s kde’s/kubuntu’s fault/issue.
I also have no idea if minitube can ‘force’ a specific backend thru phonon though I’d think if it was possible it would have been done?
(technically minitube doesn’t even need a real backend, it can work ok with the null one & vlc installed but obviously better to use the vlc backend.
Whether down the road minitube decides to support gst-1.x & whether that would work better or more consistent than 0.10 I’ve no clue but certainly not assured on either count. (look at how the youtube grilo plugin has deteriorated in gst-1.x (gvfsd-http is the main culpritAug 13, 2013 at 4:58 pm #87553SudheendraGuest
I installed minitube on ubuntu 12.04, able to search for videos though unable to play them. Tried to remove phonon-backend-xine, it says “Virtual packages like ‘phonon-backend-xine’ can’t be removed”. After reading this thread, tried to remove phonon-backend-gstreamer, the minitube application itself got removed. Can anyone please help me fix this?
Otherwise please suggest me good alternatives to minitube that work on 12.04.

I can confirm that removing
phonon-backend-gstreamerfixes the issue on Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS for me.Sep 17, 2013 at 10:13 pm #88626tomGuest
So I just did a clean install of a ubuntu 12.04 based distro and it is still the same. The videos repeat endlessly, even with phonon-backend-gstreamer removed…Oct 2, 2013 at 5:42 am #88831PancakesGuest
Am using Ubuntu 12.04 and am still experiencing this issue despite not having ‘phonon-backend-gstreamer’ installed (only phonon backend installed is VLC). I’ve tried uninstalling/reinstalling but the issue prevails. Is there something else I can do?Oct 14, 2013 at 6:50 pm #88968nixddaGuest
Problem ist real! deinstall from honon-Backend-gstreamer not works on linux mint!Oct 31, 2013 at 7:37 am #89189DonarssonGuest
I had the same problem on Ubuntu 13.10 and removing the gstreamer backend did solve it. Still it would be nice if this could be fixed in future versions.
In other news, thank you very much for this nice application, I really like it!Nov 4, 2013 at 3:26 pm #89346MikeGuest
Hi still have the repeating problem on 2.1.3 it’s a major show stopper, I realise that you can disable phonon but for many this is not an option.
Hope it can be fixed soon :)

Try removing the gstreamer phonon backendNov 8, 2013 at 7:17 am #89525ncGuest
Thank you so much for this wonderful app. The sudo command suggested above fixes the repeated replay issue (running 13.10).Nov 15, 2013 at 1:12 am #89793PancakesGuest
This is still an issue for me. I have removed phonon-backend-gstreamer, removed and reinstalled minitube-ubuntu, and the issue prevails. Any suggestions other than to remove phonon-backend-gstreamer? Is there any further information I can provide?Jan 22, 2014 at 6:22 pm #92394NuezGuest
Problem is here also not resolved.
Phonon-backend-gstreamer is removed, only the vlc one is installed.
Minitube (2.1.5) was completely removed and reinstalled, and also the phonon packages.
Still an issue, so it’s an app bug I suppose.
I am using Elementary OS Luna, system is up-to-date.
I also be glad to pay for this app if this is fixed.
Thank you for your help!Jan 22, 2014 at 6:45 pm #92397
Do you have other Phonon backends installed? Xine?Jan 23, 2014 at 4:09 pm #92401NuezGuest
None of them but phonon-backend-vlc.
I checked in synaptic but I also tried to remove in terminal gstreamer and xine, which confirms me that theses packages are not installed.
The rest of the app is working flawlessly.
Thank you again.Feb 9, 2014 at 10:04 am #92556StefanGuest
Have the same problem removed phonon-backend-gstreamer and upgraded to version 2.1.6 but it still repeats the same video on Ubuntu 12.04.03 64 bit.
Else I really like the app!
If it is something you want me to try I’m most willing to do so.Feb 13, 2014 at 9:43 pm #92624DavidGuest
I’m on xubuntu 12.04 LTS running minitube 2.1.5 (no update available). This problem is still very real. I only have phonon-backend-vlc. The two other packages that seems to be the problem is not installed on my system. I’m not using pulseaudio, I’m only using the alsamixer. Minitube will play one video over and over again, only manually skipping to the next works.Feb 13, 2014 at 10:23 pm #92625AdrianGuest
I can confirm David’s testimonial. Instead of him, I use Minitube 2.1.6 from the Noobslab’s apps ppa and still not a fix for this bug. I use Xubuntu 12.04.4 32-bit and phonon-backend-gstreamer is not installed.Feb 23, 2014 at 7:41 pm #92671hmmGuest
this worked for me linux mint 16 xfce
sudo apt-get remove phonon-backend-gstreamer
sudo apt-get install libqtgui4 libqt4-xml libqt4-network libqt4-dbus phonon-backend-vlcMar 6, 2014 at 9:21 pm #92724DavidGuest
I allready have all of those packets installed on my system. Checked minitube again today, problem still persists.Mar 7, 2014 at 7:32 am #92725JochenGuest
Problem persists. Ubuntu 12.04, only vlc backend. Happens in 1.6, 1.9 as well as in 2.1.Mar 16, 2014 at 10:45 pm #92741AdrianGuest
Problem solved after installing the saucy phonon-backend-vlc 0.6.2-2 from https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/phonon-backend-vlc/0.6.2-2/+build/4622040/+files/phonon-backend-vlc_0.6.2-2_amd64.deb on Xubuntu 12.04.4 x64bit and removing phonon-backend-gstreamer.Apr 8, 2014 at 8:36 pm #92771DavidGuest
^^ This solution worked for me too. Thanks a million Adrian!May 11, 2014 at 3:52 pm #92839StefanGuest
