I can’t remember how many times I have found a good video, mostly music videos, on the internet that I wished I could download and save on my PC. Youtube has added an option to download videos, but limits the equity to 1080p and asks for a subscription for downloading music videos.
Well, times have changed, and now we have an option to do that. Over time, many new video downloaders have emerged and in this article, I am going to talk about one of the best ones, 4kFinder Video Downloader. In this 4kFinder Video Downloader Review, you will know everything about the application and whether you should even have this on your PC.
What is 4kFinder?
First things first, 4kFinder is not just for youtube, you can use it to download videos from other platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Vimeo, Bilibili, NicoNico, BBC, Vimeo, VLive, Tumblr, Fmovies, and other video sites in high quality.
You can do a lot more with the ability to save videos in MP4, MKV, 3GP formats or simply extract audio from videos in formats such as MP3, M4A, or OGG. Overall, it supports 20+ output video and audio formats altogether.
You can also download 3D video content and enjoy it even when you are offline. All you need is the URL of the particular video and add it via copy and paste in the application.
The software has a rich and easy user interface, as far I have used it. The functions are easy to reach, icons and buttons are big, and overall it’s much easier to operate than most other apps in the market. The more you will use the application the more you will start liking it.
It’s not just that, I have to appreciate the developers for creating this black red combo in the interface which looks stunning. It perfectly blends and if you are a fan of dark modes, then you are going to love it.
Overall, no complaints from my end in terms of the user interface. It is one of the fewest apps which gives importance to the UI, and I have to say they have done a pretty neat job here. I am really impressed with the UI.

Impact On System
The application is quite lightweight I must say. When I was using it I did not feel any glitches or stutters as such. It was using very few resources. I found out that while analyzing and downloading a video, it was using about 4-6% CPU, about 300MB of memory, and 0.3Mb/s of the disk. Overall, it was quite lightweight for a downloader application.
Note: I used it on my laptop powered by i5 9th gen, with a 500GB SSD. Performance can vary for users, according to their PC specs.
