Ultra High Definition Television, otherwise known as 4K video, is video that has a resolution of approximately 4,000 pixels. 4K video is 8 megapixels (3840×2160) and has four times as many pixels as standard HD video (1920×1080) which is 2.1 megapixels. This extreme increase in quality has resulted in many video enthusiasts buying 4K UltraHD TVs, and others searching for 4K video streams on the web.
Streaming 4K video is not very efficient—there aren’t many services that support 4K yet, and the services that do support 4K video are costly and use high amounts of bandwidth. Buying 4K UltraHD TVs is extremely costly as the prices are not economically feasible for consumers at this time. YouTube has many videos in 4K UltraHD quality, but the site does not offer users the ability to download and convert YouTube videos. There are many YouTube video downloaders on the market, but most of them do not work or do not offer many features. One that stands out from the rest is the 4K Video Downloader. The site claims that it is “Just a video downloader, as simple as that,” but if you scroll down to the features, you will see that it is actually much, much more than that.
The interface is simple and easy-to-use, but it still has enough options to make this the most powerful YouTube downloader on the market. You can download videos in low resolution, normal quality, high quality, HD quality and 4K UltraHD quality. All you have to do is copy and paste the YouTube URL (link) into the 4K Video Downloader and click “Download.” If you want to choose custom settings such as a particular download folder or specific quality, you can do it all from one window. And if you want to use the same settings every time you download a video, just click “Smart Mode” and you can download all videos with a single click!
Not just for YouTube
While YouTube is the most popular music-sharing site on the web, there are other sites that offer quality content as well. So the professionals that developed the 4K Video Downloader enabled support for multiple video sites including Vimeo, Facebook and DailyMotion.
Massive playlist downloads
Playlists are a very popular feature on YouTube. Many users create playlists and share them with their friends or with the public. If you want to download specific songs from a playlist, an entire playlist or a bunch of playlists, 4K Video Downloader makes it simple. Simply copy and paste the playlist URL into the program and a window will pop up with all of the videos. You can choose to download all videos or choose specific videos and then click “Download.” You can also automatically generate .m3u files for playlists and automate audio tags for music tracks.
Many audio/video enthusiasts use iTunes as their preferred music player. But if they download a whole bunch of songs, they now have to manually add them to iTunes. But not with the 4K Video Downloader. Simply click on “Preferences,” and then click on “Add the resulting video and audio to iTunes.” That’s it! All downloaded videos and audio files will be automatically added to your iTunes directory.
The 4K Video Downloader comes with full proxy support, so you can browse anonymously and download videos that may not be available in specific areas. Simply click on “Preferences,” and then click on “Show Proxy” to add or manage proxy servers.
If you have used other YouTube video downloaders in the past, you will know that YouTube has implemented restrictions on Vevo content. Users can only download Vevo videos 3 times per week. But that’s a drag, and you probably want to download a lot more than 3 videos per week! So the experts that developed the 4K Video Downloader found a way to bypass this Vevo restriction. Now you can download as many Vevo videos as you want!
Videos in 3D provide a unique form of entertainment to video and movie enthusiasts. But to watch 3D, users typically have to go to a 3D-enabled movie theater or buy a very expensive 3D television. But there is another simple way to watch 3D video—go to YouTube. YouTube has many 3D videos, but the site does not offer the ability for users to download the videos. But 4K Video Downloader can download 3D videos in UltraHD quality. So not only do you get 3D videos, but you can download the videos in the highest quality that is currently available.
Geo-specific and banned videos
YouTube has many restrictions on their videos, and some videos are not available in all parts of the world. Many videos are only available in specific countries and some are banned in specific locations. But 4K Video Downloader bypasses these restrictions and enables fast downloading in 4K quality for users that want to enjoy the content but have been blocked because of geo-specific restrictions.
4K Video Downloader is available for Windows, Mac and Ubuntu. Also it’s possible to install the portable version for Windows and have the executable file on USB drive without installing it on the computer.
Online YouTube audio downloading
For users that love to download the audio files from videos, there is an online audio downloading site which does not require users to install any software. The 4K Download Online service makes it simple to download audio files from YouTube. Simply copy and paste the URL of the YouTube video, choose MP3, M4A or OGG format and click “Download.” You will also get the choice to download the file to your computer to be saved, or you can simply play the file in your browser.
