Usefull app, ┐maybe in the next official updates?
« on: May 23, 2013, 06:48:17 PM »
I was having a lot of troubles with youtube videos. Every video that the kids played taked  cpu up to almost 100 %, so the video quality was very bad.
After a little research, i found that flash player in linux doesn't use hardware acceleration, so i tried two things: first, redirecting youtube to youtube html5 site, and then, using a dedicated player: minitube
Minitube works great, no problems at all, and the kids are very happy with it.
I really recommend this app, watching videos it's the first use of tech limited teachers, so a good performance in this area is crucial.

I like Minitube too, Juan - great app! It uses mp4 rather than Flash to play YouTube videos. CPU utilization is less of a problem on newer hardware.
