4k Video Downloader can get high quality video and audio from streaming sites such as YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion, and others. This program is free to use, unless you want to batch-download YouTube channels and playlists.
I prefer this program to other download managers because it doesn't slow down your Internet browsing, even though it has a download accelerator. When you do not use Internet for any other purpose, 4k Downloader benefits from the full strength of your connection.
Similar to the majority of other video downloaders, 4k requires only the URL of a YouTube clip. You need to paste the link onto its interface, this will start the search for video streams and you will be asked to select the required video quality, format, and the folder where the download should be saved.
Even though this is a nice program, it has some bugs. You should not “pause” a download for too long, since you won't be able to “resume” it. Also, if your Internet connection is disrupted for some time, the download will stop; and you will have to start from the beginning. Still, it is the only video download application I use.
