Usage:
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 -> ...


About:
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.

Note:
I don't use this script myself anymore because I now use this userscript (which I also made):
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/98782

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

what would make it rock big-time:
download YouTube-Video & convert to OGG/MKV.

so that one can actually WATCH it after downloading ;)

thanks anyway!

Works well, I've been waiting for so long for something like this. Thanks!

When the file dialog opens and you click "Cancel", the video is downloaded anyway. So you're force to download all the videos of a page instead of only the ones you want. When you click Cancel, it should go to the next video.

I now wached the demo video of this site.
This service menu supports to download a video by just right-clicking a url wich points to the youtube site in which the video is embedded: you don't download the video twice (one time with the flash plugin, one time by the script). And my script downloads the bigger, fullscreen version of the videos. ;)
And my script renames the downloaded video apropriatly!

The only drawbacks on my script: doesn't work with firefox and dose only work for youtube.
