Re: Solved: Smtube on mint 7-xfce and mint 13-xfce

VLC doesn't run smoothly, also all others Mplayer, Xnoise etc.
I tried Xine. After nice running 30 seconds of mp4 it says 'too many lost packets, try to optimize system', lost audio ...
Xine-check says there is problem with kernel, cannot find xine-lib etc. May be Xine is not available for Mint 13.

Re: Smtube on mint 7-xfce and mint 13-xfce

Thanks! Many times have done these commands, now with success. Smtube now plays the videos from youtube smoothly (some of them cannot open - but this would be the next research).
Now I'm going to find a player for mp4 videos on old PC running smoothly...

Re: Smtube on mint 7-xfce

After commands from
http://www.noobslab.com/2013/07/minitub ... buntu.html
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/apps
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install minitube

I can run Minitube on Mint 13, but the quality of video is the same as in Firefox/Youtube (non smoothly).
