The title says it all. I downloaded and installed Minitube from repositories. The program's unable to play or download any video.

Secretly though it did play one video the first time for the length of the video, but never afterwards.

So what could be the issue? Is it related to the installation on Ubuntu? Am I missing something?

A fix for youtube as been released a few days ago
