Our apps' user count is growing, and so are the features. Thus, we get more of your questions on how to use 4K Download software even smoother. From time to time, we compile your questions in blog articles, update our website FAQ section, share tips on how to get the most out of our applications, and reply to you on Reddit. So this time, we made a new list of your questions with definitive answers from our support team and devs.
If I change my Instagram username, will it influence 4K Stogram?
Not at all! You may need to log in to your account in the app again after you change the username. It won't affect any of your downloaded files, nor will you lose anything you saved.
How can I request a feature?
You can visit our Reddit community and make a post with the tag Feature Request. We carefully consider all your requests, share your ideas with our developers and implement your ideas if that’s technically possible.
How can I submit a site to support?
There’s a pinned thread on our Reddit that is called Submit an unsupported website. Join our community, open this thread and make a comment with the website you want us to support. Thanks to your suggestions, we’ve added Bilibili, Rumble, TikTok, BitChute and other sources to our supported sites. Let us know which site we should add next!
How to switch to dark mode?
The dark mode is switched on by default according to your OS colour theme. Dark mode in Linux Mint will surely be added, but there’s no ETA at the moment.
Can I download TikTok videos without a watermark with 4K Tokkit?
You will soon! We’re currently working on this feature to release it later this year.
Can I save Instagram live?
You can download Instagram live streams with 4K Stogram as long as this live video is uploaded to feed by its creator.
Can I download TikTok videos from the search field of 4K Tokkit by entering a username, or is it with the URL now?
You can download TikTok videos in 4K Tokkit by pasting a video URL into the search field or entering the user’s TikTok handle. Both ways work fine, but you won’t see search results when entering the username.
When is the native Apple silicon app available?
Developing all 4K Download apps specifically for Apple M1 and M2 devices is very time-consuming, so we can’t be sure of an exact ETA. If you encounter difficulties with installing our software on your M1 or M2 Mac, read our one-step guide on how you can easily and hassle-free install 4K Download apps on Apple silicon devices.
Can I download 320-kbps audio from YouTube with 4K YouTube to MP3 or 4K Video Downloader?
Unfortunately, you can’t. Similar services claim they can download 320-kbps audio from platforms like YouTube. As stated by a YouTube representative, the platform doesn’t stream audio at 320 kbps. In fact, even the best quality audio, exclusively available to Premium users, doesn’t get higher than 256kbps AAC. The representative claimed that 256kbps AAC is equivalent in audio quality to the 320kbps CBR MP3, but YouTube never actually stored or played videos with a 320 kbps audio stream. So the highest bit rate that you can download with 4K Download apps is 256 kbps.
We have a definitive answer to this question in our blog, so check it out if you want to learn more.
Why do I use 4K YouTube to MP3 if there’s 4K Video Downloader?
If you hardly ever download videos at all and only convert videos to MP3 audio tracks, you’ll find it sufficient to use only 4K YouTube to MP3 only.
Can I subscribe to my YouTube Watch It Later playlist?
You can subscribe to YouTube Playlists as well as your private playlists just like you would subscribe to YouTube channels. Simply copy the link to a playlist and add it to the list of your in-app subscriptions.
If you want to download private playlists, such as Watch Later, ensure you are logged in with the YouTube account within 4K Video Downloader.
How do I change the folder location on my computer to a different disk drive address?
Depending on which 4K Downloader application you use, you can manage the directory folder in the following ways:
4K Video Downloader: Click 'Smart Mode' > Place a checkmark on 'Enable Smart Mode' > Pick the folder of preference or check the existing one at the bottom of the Smart Mode settings window. You can also change the directory each time you paste a link.
4K YouTube to MP3: Tools > Preferences > Output Folder
4K Stogram: Tools > Preferences > Output Folder
4K Tokkit: Tools> Preferences > Output Folder
Hope you find this brief Q&A session useful! If you have any more questions for our support or development team that we haven’t yet answered, join our Reddit and share what’s on your mind!
