Youtube client

Postby Arjen Balfoort » 03 Apr 2013 19:14

Is anyone using the Youtube client.
I have it installed by default, but I really ask myself: why?

If you don't know what the Youtube client is, please post with a simple "No".

[edit] oops the question was for solydK :oops:

Ah Minitube... i used it before once or twice but find myself using the web browser more to be honest. If you leave it out of SolydX/K, users can always install it themselves if they want to. :)

this application is used because firefox takes a lot of ram memory when multiple tabs open only to youtube. to me displays a list of video searches, but when i try to open a video, the client connection failure, so it's unusable. honestly use only firefox with sparingly.

It's clear: a big NO.
Consider it removed from the next SolydK iso's.

Ok for the iso no problem for me. but just a question: it seems to me I can't find it in the repositories. Is it normal?

PS: As Kraig says, I use it with my older PC (12 years old) with an U* 10.04 and it avoids me to have very slow videos...but it's true : it's buggy :roll:
I 'd like to install solydX on this one but I don't know how it will support to play videos fluently.

minitube is also in sid http://packages.debian.org/search?suite ... s=minitube and i believe that 1.9.1 has some of the issues solved that 1.7.1 suffers.
basically the problem is that youtube (google in general for that matter)is all the time changing something and external clients stop working unless they update frequently

I used to use it until Google broke it by making changes to YouTube quite a while back. I just checked it again and see we're on version 1.7, which is a rather old release. Flavio's got it up to 2.0 as of 3 Feb and I suspect even version 1.9 would be better but 1.7 is completely useless for me, which is a shame since it used to be a great way to watch (and snag) YouTube vids back when it worked.

I'll grant that it violates the TOS and could get me booted, but the only things I snag are vids I want to enjoy when my laptop is offline because while my phone includes the ability to play YT vids it buffers so often to be as useless as Minitube is.

[soapbox]As far as being illegal goes, last I checked Google isn't agovernment agency and has no write calling a TOS violation "illegal," no matter how much the big studios want it to be otherwise. [/soapbox]

Am I encouraging people to violate the TOS? No, I'm simply stating a way I used the software, and a way Minitube's dev expects it to be used or else he wouldn't have included the feature. I guess I shoud have included a disclaimer that the comment was for informational purposes only. 8-)
