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:

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)

 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.

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.
