Gmediafinder is a GTK application that lets you search, view and download videos from sites like YouTube. Gmediafinder is a very good alternative to Minitube in Ubuntu. Gmediafinder PPA for Ubuntu is also available which makes its installation even easier.

I actually liked Gmediafinder more that Minitube. Even though both has a very similar list of features and UI, Minitube had serious stability issues in my system when I last tried it some months ago. I have to add that I haven't tried Minitube in Ubuntu 11.04 yet. Interested in more such apps? Check out this collection of 18 applications for Ubuntu you might find interesting.
