A new version of flash-free desktop YouTube app ‘Minitube’ has been released.
The bulk of the changes concern Mac OS X Lion users (as the app is cross-platform) but there are few goodies that Ubuntu users can benefit from too.
These include: -
- Support for finding “other parts” of videos delivered in segments
- Social sharing to Twitter, Facebook and e-mail
- Fixed bug with very short videos not playing
- Fixed a (rather paranoid) security issue with temporary files and made sure temp files are always deleted
Minitube 1.6 can be installed in Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10, 11.04 and 11.10 by adding the ‘LffL Minitube’ PPA (below) to your Software Sources.
After you have added the PPA run a system update before installing the ‘minitube’ app from the Ubuntu Software Centre.
