You all know the web shortcuts for konqueror, don’t you ? (like gg: or wp: when you want to use google or wikipedia in alt-f2 or konqueror).
Well, I find this really useful, but theres none for youtube (in kde 3 at least, I haven’t checked kde4 yet). This is really easy to do. Go in the settings dialog for web browsing, either from konqueror (settings/configure konqueror), or kcontrol / internet&network / web browsing / web shortcuts. Create a new shorctut using the URL:
And you’re done. Happy youtubing!
As a side note, I dont use konqueror for browsing, firefox is configured as my main web browser. But, strangely enough, when you use the web shortcuts or if you open a bookmark from the kicker “bookmark” applet, then the right thing is done and the page is opened in firefox. This brings web shortcuts to firefox as well, and I’m happy with that.
