4K Video Downloader is intended to make your favorite Internet videos available offline. The tool can easily strip a clip’s URL to download the corresponding file. Fortunately, it works with multiple Internet video-sharing sites, such as Vimeo, SoundCloud, Flickr, Facebook, DailyMotion and so on.

Good news is that the downloader can manage various tasks at the same time. Besides, it lets you use up to seven simultaneous threads to reduce waiting time. To start a new task, you simply need to copy the page URL from your browser and paste it onto the program. At this point, it may also be necessary to select the desired format, quality and subtitle language. However, you can avoid this step by enabling Smart Mode and setting these parameters by default. In addition to individual clips, the program supports downloading YouTube playlists and channels. In this regard, it is just great that you can subscribe to a channel so that newly posted videos will be downloaded automatically.

The tool has advanced features that allow taking advantage of very recent technological progress. First, it is excellent that it can transfer an extensive range of resolutions, up to 8K. Second, it can download 3D video provided at the source site. Third, it also supports getting 360-degree footage, which lets you enjoy an immerse viewing experience. Finally, the program can download and embed annotations and subtitles.

In a nutshell, 4K Video Downloader is a free program that I would like to keep as part of my personal software stock. However, it has some limitations. It does not allow searching video sites. Similarly, it does not integrate with your browsers to identify downloadable contents. Also, you cannot use it to record streaming video directly from the screen when the original file cannot be downloaded otherwise. Finally, the tool does not support converting the downloaded videos to other formats, a feature that is available from other similar programs.
