cuteTube now in extras-testing

cuteTube 0.9.2-5 (a YouTube client for the Nokia N900) is now in the Maemo 5 extras-testing repository. There have been a few UI tweaks (see screenshots below), and the UI will continue to improve, but my main focus will now be on improving the video playback experience.

Please test and vote for cuteTube here.

cuteTube for N900 now in extras-devel

  • Added automatic connection to WiFi/3g.
  • Support for KMPlayer
  • New icons provided by joppu (big thanks :) )

cuteTube - a feature-rich YouTube client for the Nokia N900

cuteTube is my first N900 application, written in Python and Qt. It should be available from extras-devel fairly soon. It is a feature-rich YouTube client and enables the user to:

  • Browse and search for YouTube videos.
  • Playback and download videos.
  • Create an 'on the go' playback queue, which can also be saved as a YouTube playlist.
  • Rate videos, view comments and add comments.
  • Manage subscriptions, playlists, favourites etc.
cuteTube has full auto-rotation.

Some screenshots and a short demo video:
