Streaming video is great, except when it isn’t. And sadly, it isn’t when the connection goes bad, gets too busy or gives up. 

We’ve all been there. When the Wi-Fi goes wonky or you’re struggling to get a signal, that means putting up with painfully pixelated pictures, enduring endless buffering or spinning beach balls or worse still, being unable to stream a single second. 

4K Video Downloader solves those problems. It enables you to download your favourite video and audio so that you can catch up when you’re offline or watch it whenever and wherever you want, and it ensures that the clips you want are always available when you need them. 

That’s why millions of people rely on 4K Video Downloader to download video from the world’s most popular streaming sites. It’s the easiest way to download streaming video that you can play back any time, anywhere.

Download 4K video with two clicks

4K Video Downloader is incredibly powerful, but it’s also incredibly easy to use. Simply install the app on your Mac or your Windows or Linux PC and you’re ready to go: simply copy the video link from your web browser and click on the Paste Link button. That’s it. 

And it’s not just for YouTube. 4K Video Downloader works with all your favourite sites including Facebook, DailyMotion, YouTube Gaming and Vimeo, as well as music sites such as SoundCloud.

Of course, there are lots of options so you can get the video in the quality and format that you want. You can download in 720p HD, 1080p HD, 4K and even 8K resolution when it’s available, and it supports 3D video and 360-degree videos too. You can even automatically extract subtitles. 

It’s a brilliant YouTube playlist downloader too: you can save entire playlists and channels in MP4, MKV, M4A, MP3, FLV or 3GP for use on any device, and if music’s your thing you can easily convert a YouTube playlist to MP3

Why 4K Video Downloader is the perfect tool for everyone

Being unable to stream video or music isn’t just a problem when you want to catch up on your favourites or kick back with some cartoons, although of course it’s really annoying. It’s also a huge problem if you’re relying on video for school or for work. 

You don’t want your kick-ass Keynote or perfect PowerPoint presentation to fall flat because a crucial video won’t load or isn’t available. 4K Video Downloader solves that problem by making sure the clip, song or lecture is always right there on your computer. And that gives you another benefit: you can import it into your favourite video editor and use it in your projects.

4K Video Downloader has another clever trick up its sleeve: proxy server support. This enables you to fool sites into thinking you’re somewhere else, which is really handy if you’re travelling and find yourself geo-blocked from content you’d normally be able to access. Simply configure the proxy server and those blocks disappear.

The speed you need

One of the things that makes 4K Video Downloader so useful is its Smart Mode, which enables you to set your preferences for file formats and quality and automatically apply them to every new download. That means no fiddling; just fast downloading. 

And that downloading works across multiple files and sites. Thanks to the built-in queue manager there’s no need to wait for one download to finish before starting another: you can add multiple videos from multiple sites and get 4K Video Downloader to grab the lot.

With support for 4K, 8K, 3D and 360-degree video, MP3 music and all the file formats that matter, 4K Video Downloader is a kind of Swiss Army Knife for the internet: it enables you to grab video and audio from your favourite sites and download it in the resolution and file format of your choice. It’s packed with useful features, it’s really easy to use, it works brilliantly and you can get started for free.
