Get YouTube Video (improved)

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)

 LSB compliance

 by kmsz on: May 1 2009
Score 50%

In install-kde3.sh, I changed the path from /usr/* to /usr/local/* because it is the local admin who installs additional software and not the operating system vendor. It _makes_ a difference, especially when checking the system for integrity.

Everything should work fine without difference because /usr/local/* is usually included in the path of a standard installation.

I like your service menu tool very much, you can even download by clicking on links, not just from the page.

 KDE 4 - Translation

Hi everyone,

I'm French, so I can confirm that your translation for our language of this service menu is correct.
Besides this, I want to say that under openSuSE 11.1 and KDE 4.3, it's necessary to replace FILE_CLIENT='kfmclient' by FILE_CLIENT='kfmclient', in order to avoid a "Copy command unknown" error.
Thanks for this pretty useful application, please excuse my bad english and have a good day.

 Files not found

Hi, i downloaded the source, extracted, ran "sudo ./install-kde4.sh", and i got these errors:

install: cannot stat `get_yt_video-kde4.py': No such file or directory

install: cannot stat `get_yt_video-kde4.desktop': No such file or directory

Here is the file list in youtube-servicemenu-1.8 directory:

Should i edit install-kde4.sh to use get_yt_video.desktop and get_yt_video.py instead?

I'm using PCLinuxOS 2010 (KDE4)

Oh, yeah. I didn't really maintain these scripts. Here is an updated version of the install script:

Or informally, for KDE4 the following line in get_yt_viceo.desktop:

has to be replaced with these two lines:

The get_yt_video.py script now works with KDE3 and KDE4 without changes.

I *do* maintain the mkrpm.py script, though.

Can you please add support for downloading the WebM files where they exist?

 Re: WebM

 by panzi on: Sep 1 2010

The menus defined by .desktop files are static, so I can't add menu item that is only shown in the case a webm file exists. I added "support" (its now a known format) for downloading webm files to the python script in the hg repo, but you could always use the script to download webm files when you knew the right fmt code and pass it to the script. Maybe I'll add a blind option for webm for the next release, but I think the menu gets too crowded. Konqueror isn't Firefox, and you notice it when it comes to "extensions".

 File Not Found errors

It looks like YouTube changed something, now the script always triggers HTTP 404 File Not Found errors no matter what format is picked. FYI, the authors of youtube-dl figured out the changes, so you can look at what they changed (but unfortunately their changeset contains some refactoring, so it isn't immediately obvious what the relevant change is).

Ah. I didn't use my script in a long time. I updated it so it should work again. However, I now require python-lxml as a dependency.

PS: Is there a way to be notified per email about comments?

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.
