SMTube is an open source stand-alone graphical application that lets you search, play and download YouTube videos.
Videos are played back with a media player (by default the open source SMPlayer is used, a media player that can play virtually all video and audio formats) instead of a Flash player. This allows better performance, particularly with high definition content. SMTube also lets users download the videos. Several videos can be downloaded at a time.
The application is a fork from UMPlayer.
