4K Video Downloader is better than YouTube By Click or 2 Helpful

about 4k Video Downloader and YouTube By Click, KeepVid Jan 2015

I've tested 4K Video Downloader, YouTube By Click,

4K Video Downloader offers to choose from various resolutions and formats. Moreover, 4K Video Downloader allows to download video subtitles too (if video subtitles are available). I also prefer 4K Video Downloader user interface rather than YouTube By Click interface.

4K Video Downloader offers standalone installer that isn't bloated with addware (bloatware), contrary to YouTube By Click, which offers bloatware and you must be careful not to install that bloatware.

I've used to like, but doesn't offer downloading high resolution (1080p, 4K) for some videos. Also was unable to download subtitles for some videos. In all of those cases, 4K Video Downloader worked just fine.

As of 2015-01 I'm going to use 4K Video Downloader as my primary YouTube downloader.

I recommend you try 4K Video Downloader first before trying other YouTube downloaders.

Really useful software when it comes to downloading full HD or even higher quality videos. In newer versions, it also supports 60 fps videos. Free version works fine, you can pay for downloading whole playlists of videos.
So, 4K Video downloader is much better then other paid products, it works very quickly, and downloads in excellent quality and I can only recommend it.
