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.

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)

 KGet and Codeine

 by H00K on: Jun 13 2008

Is it possible to use KGet for downloading and then open it in Codeine?

Downloading with KGet gives you the advantage to filter the download automatically to a folder (e.g. all videos into the video folder).

Perhaps, but I don't see a way to send cookies to kget. Maybe it does use kcookiejar anyway and so videos for which you would need to be logged in would work.
But I don't feel like switching to kget, because I don't use it. :P
You can write a patch, though. I would include it as an option.

Fair enough. I just thought since the initial version uses KGet that it wouldn't be hard to do:

What about Codeine od SMPlayer support as a player?

P.S. Dragon player (the KDE4 version of Codeine) is/will be the default player in KDE4.

Well, I'm thinking about letting the user choose the video player. Is there any way to access the "open with..." dialog in a kdialog manner? Other than that I simply could use "kfmclient exec $video" which would open KDEs default program for that filetype (which can be configured in the control center).

The idea with the user's default video player is pretty good IMHO.

as per reg.
i use it, downloading stuff for my ma, i'd use flv's, but i can't figure out how to make windows play them without using a tool that she'd have trouble with, and mpegs play fine in WiMP.

And MP4? Can WMP play MP4? It is standard (I think). The MP4 version is better quality anyway. Quicktime plays it and I think there is Qhicktime for Windows. However, I would use VLC. It plays next to everything and is not hard to use either. Under Windows and Linux/Unix VLCs GUI looks ugly, though. (Under OS X it has another much better GUI.)

I added get_yt_video-kde4.desktop which is made by Kevin Kofler (a Fedora packager). On Fedora you have to copy it to:
or on some other distributions to:

I didn't test this, because I still use KDE 3.5 and will only switch to KDE4 when KDE 4.2 is released.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
