5 stars! Now it's time to get more users

thanks for testing :)

LE: If you're interested I've written a more general addon. You can set any external player through preferences, though I only tested for Minitube and the new SMPlayer 0.7.0

the "feature" issue is still not sorted out
I tried http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=oPuX4JO43OA in FF 9.0.1 and ended up with www.youtube.com/watch?v=eS-y2R9cmnQ in minitube 1.7

You must have known about youtube scope in Unity in Ubuntu. I believe OMG Ubuntu will support your project like they have done with the scopes and lens.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.5.1-signed). 

new version

Hi, I fixed, I think, most of the issues that were due to how minitube handles some urls. Now I do some cleanup before I pass them. The only thing I'm not sure how to handle is the "-" thing since I don't know for sure what constitutes a valid youtube video argument. I could drop the "-" and pass that to minitube but I don't know if it wouldn't cause any problems later.

Version 0.6 is on the review queue and should be out today, thanks again for testing.

Regarding Unity and Ubuntu, while I'm a Ubuntu user for many years I stay away from Unity, my current WMs are http://awesome.naquadah.org/ and lxde.

Again, thank you for testing.

also not working with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-l2aEPwhLPE
but working with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2aEPwhLPE (without the "-")

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.3.rev4.1-signed). 

thanks

First of all didn't expect anyone to use it so I wrote it just to scratch an itch, the frustration of using flash. Will try and update the add-on next week. Again, thanks for testing :)

LE: updated should fix the "feature" issue, the "-" thing seems like a minitube issue.
