All reviews for DVDFab Downloader

Do not use DVDFab Video Downloader, and especially do not purchase its "PRO" features. The software just uses YouTube-DL like the rest of the market that charges money for a deceptively pretty GUI. Proof: https://i.imgur.com/YTuViym.jpg

Even when using YouTube-DL, the program does not detect 4K on a 4K YouTube Linus Tech Tips video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrkgEXh5CSU), even when "PRO" features have been authorised ("Download up to 8K", they say). In more detail, the program displays that "best" was chosen, but the download defaults to 1080p even though the 4K exists, making the program completely useless for my expected purposes.

This error occurs both within the program itself with the "best" quality option and through the program's Chrome extension (which is a fetcher and does not solve my issue). Even similar software like Wondershare UniCoverter can download 4K YouTube videos, and that uses YouTube-DL as well.

To everyone reading this: You don't need to pay for the program to get 4K or other "PRO" features. Just get YouTube-DL itself, which is free, open-source, and far more customisable and capable than a restricted GUI would allow.

If you absolutely need a GUI, get YouTube-DL GUI instead.

If you don't want software on your computer, use clipconverter.cc

That is my review. Thank you for reading.
