Let’s now look into this interesting phenomenon, – 4k Video Downloader online. Interesting that this is originally a piece of software, that can be found on 4kdownload.com, while we are talking about its online version located at https://online.4kdownload.com/. but! that’s not all!! the most exciting part is that this online 4k downloader doesn’t download video at all!! you’ll need the software to do that. how exciting is that! =)
quick review, to up your expectations maybe… this is a nice tool, except the fact that it doesn’t download video. it offers 3 conversion formats – mp3, m4a, ogg. While mp3 conversion takes a few moments, m4a is faster, and final file is downloaded from nowhere else but Amazon Cloud servers..
Whoa!! that’s nice! i wonder if this is done to obfuscate the source of download, or is it simply easier to have people download from amazon.. maybe they even keep mp3s there.. See, isn’t it nice? Withoug knowing, Amazon and its cloud service become unwitting accomplices in youtube to mp3 conversion and youtube downloader process.. Well, isn’t it nice? Google must be furious! =)
But thanks to that me and you – end users – get a fast downloading mp3, flying into your device at all the speeds amazon cloud can throw at you. Thanks, 4kdownload.com! =) Final mp3 is 128kbps, which is consistent with what youtube offers for the audio stream, so…. I like this tool for a youtube mp3 converter. Not to download youtube as mp4, where sites like keepvid do their deeds..
And thus let’s go to the tutorial part of this article. Not presenting alexa graph here as i usually do, cause this one will relate to the software mostly. I don’t even think this online converter is really popular. Plus it has 10 daily conversions limit, so… Right… I don’t think that limit would be reached by anyone, even if they came out of 10 year sleeping and will need to get mp3s for all the missed years..
Again, please, note.. This is a tutorial of the online tool 4kdownload.com provides, besides their software, which will be reviewed in some future.. Just not now. So there’s this new song by Ariana Grande – God is a Woman, let’s try and convert it to mp3 or download the video using 4kdownload online, as much as a facebook video downloader..
Step 1. Open the front page and look around
looks pretty much like all others do. just watch out, there are conversion formats offered on bottom left, – m4a is the default one, gotta change to mp3 if you are after the mp3. I didn’t notice at first, thus extra steps in this tutorial…
Step 2. Enter the video URL and press Download
in my screenshot there’s no indicator of pressed stuff, except for line “waiting in queue” below, as system waits to extract audio from the video. Technically, m4a is offered on any youtube video, so delay here is a bit excessive.. m4a link can be obtained in moments, not seconds.. in any case, we wait. Also note there’s https available…
Step 3. Now we wait
and finally download link is available on the bottom of the screenshot.
Step 4. Download m4a
as i’ve mentioned before, i didn’t notice that my request was for the m4a version of the audio. But also check the download link – it’s coming from amazonaws, not weak, hey?
Step 5. Select Mp3 and Download again
and enter URL anew, as first step, of course… go for the mp3! process takes a bit longer, since now there’s actual conversion involved…
Step 6. Proof of download
…but after all we get the URL and download the mp4 from amazon aws cloud services. fast and easy download.
for a change, it was nice to use a site with no ads. this is what happens when site relies on software downloads and installs, and thus subscription payments. They don’t want you to get annoyed with ads and leave before downloading the software.. I think this online converter is actually another step further trying to retain the client, keep them around, woo them with nice converter, so maybe they get the software…
in any case, was quite an easy process, fast download, no ads, NO ADS! but there was 1 little negative, such as no video downloads, although the website name kinda implies rather video download and not the audio conversion.. but oh well, we all try as we can… to make money… and so i give this downloader 4 stars.
