The profusion of high-quality videos in online sites such as YouTube does not always correspond to the ability of video download managers of handling HD or 4K video files. 4k Video Downloader has been designed to grab precisely (but not exclusively) 1080p HD, 720p HD, and 4K videos, together with 360º and 3D video files.

The program supports not only YouTube videos (both those on the site and those embedded in other pages), but also any video hosted by Vimeo, Facebook, Flickr, SoundCloud, and DailyMotion, or extract and download their audio stream only. Either way, you will be asked to choose an output codec and a level of quality from those available. Each option includes useful information about the formats of the various streams as well as the size of the file it refers to. Usually, you will have to repeat this operation for every video you wish to download unless you enable Smart Mode. This feature will let you choose a favorite format, the quality of the video stream, whether to download any subtitles or not, and the output folder where you want to store your downloaded media. These settings will become your default download settings, and they will be applied to all the videos you download, including those in a playlist.

The download process itself is fairly fast, subject to your ISP provider, of course, and your PC’s capabilities. The program will take full advantage of your download speed, as there is no way of limiting it. Regrettably, if the download fails, you will have to start from scratch all over again, as you cannot resume any broken download. You can download more than one video at a time, and even YouTube playlists, as long as they don’t contain more than 25 files. This limitation can be overridden by acquiring a license key, which will also allow you to include subtitles in the download process and subscribe and download full YouTube channels.

Though you can use 4k Video Downloader to grab any video hosted by any of the sites supported, regardless of its quality, it is its support for HD, 4K, 3D, and 360º videos that makes it a tool worth having in your desktop.
