- (4K Video Downloader) not able to download youtube videos in 4k anymore.

example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcJtL7QggTI
Even though video is in 4K, when we paste the link in "4K Video Downloader", the highest resolution we can download is 1080p.
4K Video Downloader was able to download 4K videos easily earlier.

Please fix this.
Thank You.

If we change the format to MKV, we can download in 4k.
But earlier we had 4k in mp4 format as well.

please fix this.
Thank you.

4k mkv files downloaded from this software are corrupted. Their thumbnails dont load up and explorer becomes very slow. Deletion takes 5 minutes minimum or a restart.

YouTube stores several formats and resolutions of a video, which 4K Video Downloader parses and downloads. YouTube has changed the way content is stored. As a result, 4K resolution can be downloaded only in MKV format for the moment.

Please change MP4 to MKV format to get 4K Resolution.
