Minitube 1.6 Released, PPA Installation

Desktop YouTube app Minitube was recently updated to version 1.6. This new version fixes a few bugs and adds an important, missing feature of sharing the video to social networks like Facebook and Twitter and also via e-mail. Minitube aims at the flash-free desktop and doesn't need any flash player to play the YouTube videos.


Minitube 1.6 is available via PPA now for installation in Ubuntu Lucid to Oneiric. For installation, get to a Terminal and run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/minitube
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install minitube


Once installed, you can launch it by searching the Dash for 'Minitube'.

Those using some other Linux can download the respective packages from here:
