Minitube 3.6: the Javascript release

Hi all, Minitube 3.6 is out. Actually it is 3.6.1 because I fixed a few issues present in 3.6. This release fixes channels not loading.

I switched away from the Invidious API and started using a number of Javascript libraries (actually NodeJS modules) that take care of extracting data from YouTube. They are well maintained and easy to update.

The details of running NodeJS modules in a Qt app are interesting and could be the subject for some future technical posts. For now, I’ll just say that it made for a great hacking sprint.

    Hello Flavio,

    the download section for ubuntu ( https://flavio.tordini.org/files/minitube/minitube.deb ) offers still the 3.6 Version and not the 3.6.1.
    This new one handels the sorting of the subscribed channels much better then the older one :)

    Hi XaRal,

    can you please build a installable Minitube.eopkg and upload it again?

    Thank you for you both for keeping updated this great Applikation!

    Hi Flavio.

    My old computer died, and my new one does not support opengl 2.0, needed by mpv context.
    I’ve forced my mpv to work with xv or x11 outputs and it’s ok.
    But trying to open minitube i get “failed to initialize mpv GL context”, and it crash.
    Is there any easy way to make minitube override opengl, or pass to mpv the values i need (–vo=xv)?

    Regards.

    The writer did a decent job on my research paper. I’m satisfied with Homeworkfor.me, good prices, easy to order.

    Hi Flavio,

    i think you have already recognized the search bug of the last searched Videos if you click on it again.
    It gives the error like: “TypeError: Cannot call method ‘find’ of undefined”

      Please report the bug on github. Does MPV work for you. Does it have the same problem? If so open the issue on their github.
