You MUST allow connections to: flavio.tordini.org (at least on the first launch)
On the first launch it connects to the developer's website to download two JS files that contain the youtube API keys.
I examined the requests and the only data that is sent to the developer is the version of Minitube (and, as it's a web request, obviously your external IP), nothing else.
