    Hello, I have 2 questions regarding this.
    1.) I’m using Ubuntu, so is there a way to have this app on Ubuntu
    2.) In my system, gstreamer is corrupted somehow and doesn’t work. So I use xine. Can I use xine for this program?

    Even though I don’t have access to an Ubuntu box, these steps will help I think.

    1. Install phonon (sudo aptitude install phonon) this will also pull qt4 if you don’t have it installed.

    2. Run the binary available in the authors website
    http://flavio.tordini.org/files/minitube/minitube-linux-0.5.tar.gz

    OR

    1. Install development tools and qt and phonon development libraries
    (sudo aptitude install build-essential qt4-dev, phonon-dev)

    2. Build and install minitube as usual (qmake, make, make install)

    Xine and Gstreamer:

    I think the phonon xine backend is also available in Ubuntu. (in fedora it’s called phonon-backend-xine)

    I cant get minitube. Im using Leonidas, it says that cannot find the package “minitube”. Do you know some manual way to get it?
