There’s life outside the browser!


Minitube is a native YouTube client. With it you can watch YouTube videos in a new way: you type a keyword, Minitube gives you an endless video stream. Minitube does not require the Flash Player.

Minitube is not about cloning the original YouTube web interface, it aims to create a new TV-like experience.


Current version is 0.8.1, released on November 20, 2009 which fixes a showstopper bug: when HD is enabled non-HD videos fail to play. A new turkish translation is also included. Here are the main changes since version 0.7:

    * HD video support
    * Volume level and mute is restored accross sessions
    * No icons in menus on Linux
    * Croatian, Latvian, Galician, Hungarian and French translations

Choose your platform:

    * Linux – 32bit binaries. You need Qt version >= 4.5 and the Phonon libraries. Ubuntu users can get their package from GetDeb or from Christian Mangold’s PPA. Gentoo has an official ebuild ready to be emerged. Also Slackware has an official build. ArchLinux users have their package too. OpenSUSE has user contributed RPMs. The GStreamer Phonon backend is recommended. Minitube strives to integrate well with both GNOME and KDE.
    * Mac OS X – Universal binary. You need at least OS X version 10.4 (Tiger) and QuickTime version 7.0.
    * Windows – The Windows Version is not Free.
    * Source code. You’re free to build Minitube by yourself, modify it and redistribute it according to the GNU General Public License.

Buy me a beer!

Minitube is Free Software but its development takes precious time. Please donate any amount via PayPal just to show that you care about the continued development of this project. Thank you!
