Minitube 1.4.2 bug fix release

Just a quick note to announce the availability of Minitube 1.4.2. This version addresses a bug with some videos not playing, especially longer ones. Also full length videos now start playing much faster. 1.4.2 also fixes some invalid download filenames on Windows. A brand new Albanian translation is included. Enjoy!

    Thanks for Minitube. So useful.

    Hi I have here the same problems with minitube 1.4.0, 1.4.1 and 1.4.2

    “Die Medienquelle konnte nicht geöffnet werden”

    on most of the videos I try to watch, I hope you can fix that fast, minitube is for me not usable at all at the moment.

    sorry I forgot to say I am using ubuntu (11.04 beta but I had the same problem with 1.4.0 and stable 10.10)

  6. Blablabla says:

    Don’t know if file a bug about this, but I see that minitube saves its configuration file in a folder named with your name, Flavio Tordini. I think this can be confusing and is not a standard for things like freedesktop. I would like that your app would save its configuration file in a folder named ‘minitube’.

  7. Rodrigo Almeida says:

    I’ve the same problem to watching videos on minitube.
    Since 1.41 when i install on first time, i never see the videos.

  10. Flavio says:

    @Murgiao which Phonon backend? I’m only testing GStreamer. Try reporting the bug to your distro.

      Ciao Flavio,
      ti scrivo in italiano è più comodo.
      Dunque dopo aver digitato sudo apt-get remove phonon-backend-xine, i video hanno ripreso a funzionare.
      Purtroppo ora ho un altro problema: i video vengono riprodotti con i colori come “negativo” (il rosso è verde ecc…).
      Potresti darmi qualche consiglio?


    • Murgiao says:

      Scusa dimenticavo il Phonon backend installato è GStreamer.

  11. idoki says:

    Hi, I had the same problem with Minitube on Ubuntu 10.10

    Solution: I first unistalled phonon, then reinstalled it from repository, then reinstalled Minitube (uninstalled automaticly by uninstalling phonon) – and now everything works as intended :) :)

    Everything using synaptic.

    PS: Love the software, minitube is amazing :) – worth a donation.

  12. Sam says:

    On Mac ppc, it s refusing videos, longer ones in the first place, telling something like “Public atom Contained on the video”. Thats occure for 70% of the videos.

  14. TiN says:

    Hi flavio, can you add the choice for pass url argument? This permit use e.g.: in my xchat associate url with minitube :).


  15. Anantha says:

    I downloaded the Minitube for Windows XP, and after the search I got the error “Connection Refused”. I could not find any relevant information on why I am getting this error.

    I am really impressed by the way Minitube works in my home pc Ubuntu. Really appreciate the product.

    Also I would like a new feature to download in MP3 format from a YouTube video, its my wish list.

  16. Sam says:

    still wish for a playlist

  18. Runar says:

    Hello, I installed Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit some days ago and am trying Minitube. I like it a lot, but sometimes in the middle of a video/song it skips to the next one. Also when I click to move to a point in the song it skips to the next instead. Is this a known bug?
