Right-click onto a link to a YouTube video or at the background of the YouTube site showing the video and choose action -> Download YouTube Video -> ...

I made some modifications to the original YouTube Service Menu. It didn't work for me, so I looked at the source. I added a different method to guess the video_id and I added additional parameters to the query string to download the video.

With this Konqueror/KDE service menu it is possible to download a YouTube video
by right clicking a link to the video and choosing "Download YouTube Video" from the
actions menu.

For more details see:

See also the original version(s) of this script:

I don't use this script myself anymore because I now use this userscript (which I also made):

This means this script might not be maintained in the future.


version 1.12a:
FIX: encoding problems

version 1.12:
NEW: chose format from menu with --format=ask.
NEW: --list option for Python script.
FIX: typos that made the script crash

version 1.11b:
FIX: Crash introduced in last version.

version 1.11a:
Updated greek translation. Thanks to Dimitrios Glentadakis.

version 1.11:
FIX: Extraction of video information. Now a different data extraction strategy
reading the flashvars of embed is used. Hopefully this is more stable.

version 1.10a:
ADD: Greek translation, thanks to Dimitrios Glentadakis (dglent)

version 1.10:
FIX: Extraction of video information. Now a different data extraction strategy
reading the flashvars of embed is used. Hopefully this is more stable.
DEP: New dependency to lxml: http://lxml.de/
NEW: Added video format 38: High Definition 3072p (mp4)

would love to use your tool.
Installing ./setup.py works
but then I get a window with
intstalled files 0%
CTRL-C gives this output:

kbuildsycoca running...

What am I doing wrong?

Has anyone installed this successfully? I've tried and when it begins to install it just stays at 0% and does nothing. Are there any prerequites to having this program?

The instructions for installing are written assuming that the downloaded file is a .tgz archive. It is actually a .bz2 archive, so the arguments to tar are wrong: the command should be $ tar xvjf.

I had no problem installing the servicemnu with that. The author should update this page.

I was able to extract the arcive but I was having a different problem. When I run ./setup.py it installs to 100% and says OK but when I enter my browser (firefox) and go to youtube and right click on a video I don't have any options to download it. I tried runing ./gui-setup.py and I get an error that says

kded: error mounting /org/freedektop/Hal/devices/volume_labe_su1020_001
Error no database available.

What does the "$" mean in the command you offered me? Also was your command to extract the archive to another directory? Theanks for you help so far. :)

This is for Konqueror, not Firefox or any other browser. If you want to download Videos off YouTube with Firefox try Video Ook or another Firefox extension/add-on.

I got this to install and work, but I notice a couple of things. First, Kaffeine doesn't play back .flv files very well (very jumpy), but Mplayer plays nicely. Second, mencoder only converted part of the .flv to .mpg and ffmpeg will only output a zero-length file and a long list of errors.

Nice, but still needs work.

Well, the thing is I don't use the conversion capabilities. They where built into the original script so I didn't remove them. I never tested them, because I don't need them. Mplayer plays most .flv videos, but for some reason not all. ffplay plays all, but it's a very limited player (only a ffmpeg-player-test actually). Since 0.85 VLC plays .flv, too. But same as mplayer not all.

There seems to be no method to download .deb files in kubuntu using konqueror. Has anyone else had this issue?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
