I can confirm this for Lucid as well.
Minitube produces the error:
Phonon error: "Die Medienquelle konnte nicht geöffnet werden." 2

Translation: "The media source couldn't be opened." 2

If this package isn't updated, then perhaps it could be removed from 'universe'. What good is it to have broken stuff in the repo.

Back to triaged, I have to wait for Minitube 1.3 to get into natty. Then, we can see about backporting it.
