How To Install MiniTube 2.3.1 On Ubuntu, Debian And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Minitube is a lightweight Youtube client, that enables the users to easily watch Youtube videos, by creating an endless video stream (playing one video after another), related to the searched keyword. And since it does not use the flash player, it consumes less CPU and preserves the battery of your laptop.

The latest version available is Minitube 2.3.1, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • Take video snapshots at full resolution
  • Faster and more reliable seeking
  • Faster video start with longer videos
  • Slide transition in playlist navigation
  • Make the volume handle red when volume is zero
  • Enhancements to the search suggestions
  • The Ubuntu & Debian version is now shipped as a .deb on the site. Goodbye Ubuntu Software Center!
  • New and updated translations
