Minitube 1.3 restores youtube playback but loses seek support on Linux

Desktop flash-free YouTube player Minitube was one of many YouTube related applications that stopped working yesterday.

Fast on his feet, Minitube developer Flavio Tordini has pushed out a fix release which restores the primary function of the application, playing videos, as well as introducing a shiny new Minitibe icon to users menus.

Sadly one change Linux users will notice is missing is ‘seeking functionality’. Favlio hopes that the disabling of this will be a temporary situation.

Download Minitube or add the Minitube PPA*.

*Version 1.3 not yet in PPA.
