Minitube – a desktop application for searching and playing YouTube videos (including HD!) without the need for Flash – released version 0.9 earlier today.
Minitube is not about cloning the original YouTube web interface, it aims to create a new TV-like experience.
Back to the 0.9 version and the developer himself describes the release a more of a “polish” than packing in shiny and “mind-blowing” new features. As such it fixes many issue users – including myself! – have found troublesome.
New Features/Changes since MiniTube 0.8
- Ability to clear recent keywords (Finally!)
- Enhanced fullscreen mode with toolbar and playlist on Linux
- Fixed buggy toolbar search box
- Fixed long queries in the recent keywords list
- Fixed time formatting bug with videos longer than an hour
- Norwegian translation
