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 aims to create a TV-like experience. Minitube automatically plays videos one after another. So sit back and enjoy. The simplicity of Minitube is great for kids and grandparents. Consider getting it as a gift for the whole family.
By consuming less CPU, Minitube preserves battery life and keeps your laptop cool. That's because Minitube takes advantage of QuickTime and does not use the Flash Player. Minitube plays HD videos up to 1080p. Go full-screen and watch them play smoothly. With Minitube you can search by keyword, search YouTube channels or just paste a YouTube URL. Minitube is translated in more than 40 languages including German, French, Italian, Russian, Danish, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Hebrew and Chinese.

What is new in version 2.3.1:
I rushed out this release because of playback problems with some YouTube videos. I had minor fixes and improvements ready so they're included as well.
Screen Shot 2014-07-19 at 17.11.12Previously one could not unsubscribe from a deleted channel. This is fixed by adding a context menu with an Unsubscribe command and while I was there I added Marked as Watched too.
For all the geeks, there's a new --stop-after-this command line option so you can gracefully end playback from a SSH shell. For Linux people there's a corresponding GNOME 3 action.
