What is Minitube?

Minitube is a YouTube desktop application. 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.

For Linux this application is free and open source: "This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version."

For Windows and MacOS there's a free version and a commercial version. The latter includes email support and free updates to all future versions.

I am glad that is working and open source. I would not go and call it "Freemium". It's just time trial, which gives you about 5-10 min of uninterrupted usage.

  • Can display related searches.
  • There is no top menu-player for Mac and the mini player is just a small window that needs to be minimized, which makes the Minitube a Minimizetube ;)

... with stopping video watching and popping up a dialog. This is not at all what I expect from a free application. (I tried on Windows 7)
