Descriptions for Description
Mac Platform: Intel
OS version: 10.6 or higher
Upgraded to Qt 5
HiDPI (aka Retina Display) support
Mac style overhaul: new toolbar, lighter fonts and tabs
Reworked icons on Mac and 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
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.
Thanks TT for this advice.
