YouTube is one of the most widely used online streaming platforms, with over 2 billion active users monthly. Organising and downloading your YouTube videos is quite a task with close to four billion videos on the platform and over 114 million channels.

While YouTube provides the option to organise playlists, it doesn’t allow users to download the playlist videos. However, content creators can download individual videos via YouTube Studio, which we will see later.

If you organize your YouTube playlists by topics or trends, not being able to download videos offline can be a bit of a downer. Fortunately, several third-party platforms can help with this task.

In this article, we’ll explain how to download YouTube playlists using the 4K Video Downloader.

Download YouTube video via 4K Video Downloader

As explained above, you cannot download YouTube videos via the official YouTube app for offline use. You will have to use a third-party tool.

Head to your browser and visit to download the app on Windows, macOS or Linux systems. Then follow the instructions given below:

Step 1: Open YouTube and copy the playlist link from above. To copy the link, use the shortcut Ctrl + C or right-click on it and select Copy.

Step 2: Next, paste the link in the downloader by clicking the Paste Link button at the top and then selecting the Download the Playlist option from the drop-down menu.

Step 3: Now, select the other important options, such as the format, quality and output folder. 4K Video Downloader supports various video quality options, including 240p, 360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p, HQ 2K, HD 4K, and UHD 8K.

Step 4: Once you have finished selecting the options, click on Download (x) Videos, where x is the number of videos in the playlist.

Step 2: Click on the Download button from the dropdown menu, and the video will start downloading.

In conclusion, you can easily download any YouTube playlist via 4K Video Downloader. Head to the tool’s website and download the app. Next, follow the steps above to download your favourite YouTube playlist easily.
