4k Video Downloader offers a convenient solution to download online videos from various media sharing websites. This way, you can enjoy your favorite movies, videos, and music clips offline, without the need of a permanent Internet connection, which may or may not be at its best all the time.
The program opens with a simple, yet rather dull interface that misses the modern look of similar apps. Yet, using the utility is a hassle-free task. You just need to copy the file's URL and paste it into the program. The download doesn't start immediately, as it waits for you to determine the format and the quality of the resulting file. What is good about this program is that it informs you about the output file's size, based on the quality you are asked to select. This way, you will know whether to keep the original video quality or change it to a more conveniently sized file. To help you even more, the utility provides a Smart mode, meant to help you apply the same output settings to all future downloads. The feature is very handy, as it saves you from making the same choices for each downloading task. From the Preferences dialog, you can set the maximum number of threads to perform in one session, which is a good option as it saves you from blockages and other inconveniences.
To sum up, 4k Video Downloader is designed for home users looking for a simple yet efficient tool to save online movies and extract audio from video files for offline playback.
