Launch Minitube from browser

Image from store Minitube
Description from store WARNING! Ubuntu Only! Please read below how to properly install this extension. This is an extension that launches Minitube from the browser using a special URL (minitubehttp://...). For this to work you need to register the special URL that is used to launch Minitube. For now this is only supported on Ubuntu (and probably similar OS-es). To make Minitube the default handler for the special URI you need to: - download the script (see below for link) to the Minitube folder (the folder with the executable in it) - give it proper permissions to run (+x) - and run it. You can download the script from here: http://minitube-chrome-extension.googlecode.com/files/install-uri-handler

  • (2013-10-02) First of all thanks for creating this extension! Just what I was looking for! After a few adjustments it's working fine on my system now. Here's what I did to get it to work: (Note: These instructions were tested on Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS with minitube installed from the Ubuntu Software Center. YMMV on other distros/releases.) 1.) Install extension from the Chrome Webstore 2.) Create a script called minitubehandler.sh with the following content: #!/bin/bash MINITUBEURL="$1" ACTUALURL="${MINITUBEURL#minitube}" MINITUBE="/opt/minitube-ubuntu/minitube" "$MINITUBE" "$ACTUALURL" > /dev/null 2>&1& 3.) Either move the script to $PATH (e.g. ~/bin ) or move it to a folder of your choice and copy down the path 4.) Create a new desktop file under ~/.local/share/applications called minitubehandler.desktop with the following contents: [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Type=Application MimeType=x-scheme-handler/minitubehttp;x-scheme-handler/minitubehttps; Terminal=false Exec=minitubehandler.sh %u Name=minitubehandler Icon=minitube NoDisplay=true 5.) Make sure to replace the Exec line with the path to your script if you decided against moving it to your $PATH 6.) Assign the desktop file to the extensions MIME type by executing the following lines in a terminal: xdg-mime default minitubehandler.desktop x-scheme-handler/minitubehttp xdg-mime default minitubehandler.desktop x-scheme-handler/minitubehttps 7.) Restart Chrome That's it. The extension should now work. Head to a youtube link of your choice and try it out! Many thanks again to Nico Farmache for coding this extension!
