Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

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.

We’ve mentioned MiniTube previously so newcomers may wish to get an introduction to it via our previous article (click here).

Minitube 0.9

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.
