Why is this app so underrated? It's new but pretty stable, even under 10.7 Lion. A video download feature would be a nice addition.

A great little app that alllows you to make a playlist of videos from various online sources, then play them in a 'mini-window that hovers above your other windows. Great for viewing a collection of videos while continuing to browse the web. Also plays full screen when required and uses very little resources.

The developer was very quick to reply to a bug that I spotted and emailed me as soon as the new version was released with the fix.

Perfect for my needs and a great lettle app with a n active & responsive developer, oh and its free!

Nice ability to quickly enter some YouTube videos to a playlist, without further distraction. The current version doesn't use flash player and has the ability of playrate control (so it probably uses HTML5?). This is of value with video lectures. I've suggested the developer to implement the Closed Caption feature of YouTube, because some video lectures and documentaries contain high quality non-automatically generated subtitles :) Another powerful addition would be quick play control with the cursors, to jump back 5 or 10 seconds: nice if you didn't hear a sentence correctly or need to rethink it. I'm looking forward to the update! :D

This app would be very useful to me and, quite frankly, almost perfect for what I was looking for if not for one "small" detail: it doesn't fetch 720p or 1080p. Only plays 360p or whatever.

Oh, and I just noticed it uses Flash Player for playback. That is not very good. Quicktime would be better. Anyways, the app looks very promising. Hope the developer won't abandon it.

There is a bug. If you try to switch to fullscreen mode while the playback is active, the dock hides, but Tubbler window stays the same size.

We are not able to reproduce the problem with fullscreen. If you have still the problem please send us a mail.

This is pretty pointless, honestly. I have to agree with everyone that's said so previously. YouTube has a pop-out option to put a video into a free-floating window. The window is hardly an eyesore. Combine that window with Afloat and it'll simply float on top of all of your windows so you can work with your video playing anywhere on your screen.

Try it with a playlist and you will see what you get in the pop-out window. I think your comment is pretty pointless, honestly.

This is a beautiful little bit of software. It is a 'niche' product allowing me to play favourite videclips from YouTube without downloading them, but it fills its niche beautifully simply doing what I want. I will be interested to see what comes next from CelMaro.

Thanks for your awesome comment. Looks like there are stupid people out giving one stare ratings for things they don't understand.

The program looks very promising however, I'm not sure if I'm having a bug, or if the program is working properly. When I click on a video on the youtube site, it's not automatically added to tuble. I installed the safari extension and all checkable options are checked. When click one of the tubler buttons in the safari toolbar, then it works. Is this normal, or should the videos be automatically added, just by loading their page in the browser. Thanks

It's the current implementation. You can use the Extension or you can drag a movie (thumbnail) from the search results or you can drag the current url of the running movie to Tubbler. There are different shortcuts to modify what Tubbler will do with the movie. (See application hepl)

rather pointless isn't it? all it is, is a simple web browser geared up towards playing youtube videos in a manner similar to quicktime. I was really hoping for proper quicktime implementation as that can play flv files natively without the need for flash at all

To make it based on QuickTime would not be a big problem and would have been much easier to implement. The problem is that it's currently not official supported by Google. We have made successful tests getting the video URL's and starting the video in QuickTime. Consider that there are many projects like this but many of them are stopped and the player not working.
