A straightforward YouTube desktop client that comes with a stylish design and basic, easy to use search, navigation and playback tools
Keeping the YouTube website opened in your browser will prove to be inefficient, especially if you are playing videos while navigating other websites: first off, it might slow down your browser’s performance, and you will waste time going back and forth between tabs or windows.
Minitube is a minimalist macOS application designed to eliminate these issues by providing a desktop interface for the YouTube website. The app allows you to search for videos, comes with playback capabilities, and you can share links with your friends directly from the app.
Uncomplicated YouTube desktop client featuring an organized and stylish design
Since Minitube is following the macOS Human Interface Guidelines, the application integrates perfectly with your desktop. At the same time, the organized design allows you to find your way around in no time.
The Minitube main window is separated in two main areas: the top toolbar that provides buttons for most frequently used functions (play / stop, fast forward, adjust volume, a slider bar for viewing the playback progress, and a search bar), and the bottom area where you can browse the results list and visualize any of the included videos.
Effortlessly refine the YouTube search results by applying multiple sorting filters
Minitube comes with a basic search tool that includes a basic text box where you must input the terms you want to search for, but also includes filtering options. You can sort the results list by relevance, date, view count, rating, duration, or quality.
At the same time, you can easily adjust the video resolution, find related videos, open the YouTube page in your default browser, share the link on Twitter or Facebook, and so on.
Straightforward YouTube desktop client designed to provide a streamlined browsing and playback experience
Minitube is a great tool to have around if you do not want to clutter your web browser and drain its resources unnecessarily. The app can be used to search for videos on YouTube in an intuitive manner, allows you to filter the results, and enables you to visualize their content without too much hustle.
