Minitube 3.6-1 just a black screen (audio working)


does anybody has minitube working?

I tried the community package and the AUR package but can not get it working properly. Just getting a black screen but good sound.

Even if I remove phonon-qt5-gstreamer it does not work.

minitube works every now and then until it doesn’t.

Learn how to use youtube-dl to download videos from virtually any source.

See: GitHub - ytdl-org/youtube-dl: Command-line program to download videos from and other video sites

Ecample of command in terminal:

sudo youtube-dl -f worst[height=360] --audio-quality 0 “url” -o “name of video.mp4”

Just paste the url for the video in place of “url” and the name of the video in place of “name of video” in the command above.

I use youtube-dl regularly .

But minitube is perfect for getting on overview over new videos on my subscribed channels without being logged into youtube
