youtube-feed fixed... ?

So, my small youtube-feed tool is really useful. I am not subscribed to any channels any more (since I prepare to delete my Google-Account) and I still get all the new videos from my favourite YouTubers. Great!

But there are some problems: Recently my feed reader flagged quite a lot of old videos as new (usually around 30 per day), which unnecessarily clutters my inbox. I'm not entirely sure, why this happens, but my guess is, that YouTube messes the GUID-fields up. So now youtube-feed writes it's own GUIDs based on the video ID (which can be extracted from the URL, which should be permanent). We'll see, if this fixes the problem.
