I made some modifications to the 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 service menu it is possible to download a youtube video
by right clicking a link to the video and choosing "get youtube video" from the
actions menu.
