Have you found a nice video on YouTube and want to download it? With the directions below, we will teach you how. But first, we need to give this warning: while posting and embedding YouTube videos on the internet is lawful, it is not always acceptable to download them for offline use. If the video hosting platform has expressly given permission to view a specific video, uploading videos is deemed a breach of YouTube’s Terms of Service.
That said, let’s have a look at the way YouTube videos can be downloaded. A simple-to-use desktop software known as the 4 K Video Downloader is included in this guide.
Step 1: Download the 4K Video Downloader app
Head over to the 4 K Video Downloader site and press to download it with the green Get 4 K Video Downloader button. Windows, MacOS (10.13 or later), and Ubuntu are available for this software. Run it to have the software installed on your device after the installer has been downloaded.
Don’t be turned off by the name if you don’t have a 4 K monitor. This is one of the most powerful and easy-to-use download applications available, and, regardless of the monitor resolution of your computer, it will work on all your files. The free version of this app is capable of uploading individual videos with adjustable characteristics all the way up to 4 K, supports 3D and 360-degree videos, and can import subtitles.
There is a premium option with a $15 price tag, but the free version would be appropriate for uploading a basic YouTube video.
Step 2: Copy the YouTube video’s URL
The next move is the simplest: just go to the YouTube video you want to import and copy its URL from the address bar at the top of the window of your browser. You should close the window or tab of the video with the URL locked and loaded into your clipboard.
Step 3: Paste in the URL
Open the programme for the 4 K Video Downloader you just installed. You don’t need to paste the URL manually, only click on the Paste Connection button in the top-left corner of the menu bar, and the app will snatch the URL from the clipboard of your device.
Step 4: Download your video
After the video has been reviewed, you will be offered a range of video quality, formats, and conversion choices. You can also change the video download location, and the programme will generate a folder containing all of the videos you have downloaded. Notice that the video captured by the app is based on your IP address, not the URL you enter, so VPN users will need to change their position in order to retrieve the correct version.
After choosing your preferred choices, just press the Download button. A progress page that lists the file size, download speed, and approximate time remaining will then be shown to you. The update can be stopped at any moment. Pick your video from the browser after the download is complete, and a vertical three-dot icon should appear on the right side of the window. Click the button and you should open up a menu. From the menu , click Display In Folder to see where the latest video was saved on your computer.
4 K Video Downloader can be programmed to download videos automatically or with a single click using Subscriptions or Smart Mode, respectively, once you get the hang of it.
