    Minitube has no sound, plays no Youtube

    I have Minitube installed via Ubuntu Geek's post.

    It installed without reporting errors.

    It calls the Youtube videos, but cannot play them nor is there sound.

    It says: "Cannot find plugin for MRL" and never plays a video.

    Minitube is a Youtube client that works without Flash.

    The GetDeb server that gave me the .deb has gone bye-bye. It seems the package needed phonon-gstreamer-backend, which Minitube needed but didn't package. Meanwhile that fixed it enough.

    Install phonon-backend-gstreamer, gstreamer-ffmpeg and gstreamer-plugins-bad.


    Then


    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/phonon_backend /usr/lib/qt4/plugins/phonon_backend

    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/phonon_backend /usr/lib/qt4/plugins/phonon_backend
    Worked like a charm for me!

    Tried the same thing and get message in terminal that file already exists, but still no sound or video from minitube. It just cycles through the available videos and give the "missing MRL plugin" message for every one.
