Interesting. Installed minitube vsn 2.4 , typed MX as a keyword and was immediately presented with a list of dolphin-oracle's videos to view. It's fast.

Minitube 2.5 is now available. The Linux version seems to be a small incremental change from 2.4, with most of the changes involving OSX. But it's reassuring to know that Minitube still being actively developed and supported.
Upgraded to Qt 5
HiDPI (aka Retina Display) support
Mac style overhaul: new toolbar, lighter fonts & tabs
Reworked icons on Mac & Windows
Status Bar hidden when not needed: less clutter, more room for videos
Clickable links in video description
Autoadjust window size (Bye, useless black bars!)
Smart date formatting: 3 hours ago, 1 month ago, etc.
When opening the YouTube webpage the video now starts from where it left in Minitube
Fixed videos restarting after long pause
Dropped support for OS X 10.6
New and updated translations.
Unfortunately, there's a dependency problem with MX-14: phonon4qt5

Maybe our packaging wizards can resolve this?
MX-14; 3.12-0.bpo.1-686-pae kernel using 4GB RAM
2.4GHz AMD Athlon 4600+
NVidia GeForce 6150 LE; 304.121 Display Driver
