4K Video Downloader Review

The internet space is overcrowded with various YouTube downloaders, and 4K Video Downloader is one of them. Some of you might be thinking if we are living in a 4G world then why to download YouTube videos as you can watch them online?

Well, this is a valid assumption, but not always. Still, there are several places where you may not have any internet connectivity at all. For example, when you travel on an aeroplane or go to some mountains or isolated place to unwind yourself. I can quote many instances where you got to have offline videos for watching it later without having any dependency on the internet.

YouTube is the biggest source for watching online movies, music videos, recorded seminars, etc. It would be awesome if they could be downloaded locally on to your smartphone, tablet, laptop, iPad, etc. That’s where 4K Video Downloader comes into the picture. This article is an in-depth review of 4K Video Downloader from various perspective.

User Experience

4K Video Downloader has a simple layout. There is nothing fancy and complicated. Even if you are using this software for the first time, you won’t have to devote more than five minutes to learn its features.


The software doesn’t take ages to load up. Options are pretty much simple. Also, it has a “Smart Mode” which is a short cut to complete your multiple selections at one place. Another good option of downloading a bunch of YouTube links via uploading CSV (MS Excel Extension) file containing your target URLs.

However, the total download time will largely depend on your internet speed. If your internet speed is slow, then I would recommend you to start multiple downloads at the night time, and you can have videos ready in the morning time.


You will have Ad-free experience on 4K Video Downloader. Even the free version does not advertise. This is not common in other YouTube downloaders.

Available formats

Various formats videos and audios are possible such as MP4 – MKV-Video, Video, FLV-Video, MP3-Audio, M4A-Audio, 3GP-Video and OGG-Audio. If you are interested in downloading audio or music, then also this tool will come in handy.

Also if you are a YouTube 360-degree or 3D videos fan then this tool has got you covered.

Free or paid?

4K Video Downloader is a freemium tool. Even its free version is enough to satisfy your needs with any YouTube Downloader. The free version of this software does not allow you to download a playlist containing more than 24 videos. Whereas, paid version of this tool will enable you to download even a more massive playlist and subtitles.

The paid version of this tool will cost you $9.95 to $14.95 for a lifetime access to three computers. But I hardly see this an requirement unless until you are some professional.

Supported platform

The software is available for Windows OS, macOS and Ubuntu platforms. Also, they come up with regular updates with each new version of operating system platform. They have a great team working on the backend.

Apart from YouTube, you can also download videos from other popular websites such as Vimeo, Facebook, Dailymotion, etc. This is the true versatility of this video Downloader.
