Re: Minitube:youtube without flash

i know i was thinking about this last time
i was like "god damn these companies, they complicate everything such that even a new laptop lags when searching sites, if only there was a way to stream videos without flash"
so today i wanted to see what alternatives i can find and i found minitube and loved it, i came back to the forum to advertise it but i see that there already is a thread, its great, i didn't have to go through all that to get it
i just did the apt-get install minitube

Re: Minitube:youtube without flash

Hmmm..

The only binary version for Linux I find there gives me a segmentation fault when I try to run it. I am on #! 9.04.

Re: Minitube:youtube without flash

Running Statler A2, and I can install via synaptic. However: I get this with each thing I try to play: "Could not open media"!

Re: Minitube:youtube without flash

Well. Seems that synaptic installs version 1.0.3, and according to the minitube website that doesn't work anymore! So I downloaded 1.1 from the website, and that works nicely! smile

Re: Minitube:youtube without flash

1.1.1 now (Squeeze)
It's new and as such Debian unstable soon has the new versions. Maybe it must wait a bit to get down to testing.

Re: Minitube:youtube without flash

Downloading v1.1.1 now - 32 files.

But won't one still need "flash player" for web pages that have flash content?

Re: Minitube:youtube without flash

I didn't even know Totem had a plugin for searching YouTube videos, but even so not everyone may want like/want Totem.

Re: Minitube:youtube without flash

The first time (also last and only time) I tried Youtube in Totem on my netbook, it seized *hard*.  Mind you, this was in Ubuntu, so there could have been other factors; I'll have to try it in Statler and see if it still causes badness.

UPDATE:  In Statler, the Totem Youtube plugin downloads thumbnails of the videos, but reports permission errors when trying to play the videos.  Maybe this is related to what broke Minitube?
