You may have noticed most of the alleged YouTube video downloader programs on the market can only download videos with a maximum resolution of 720p. Downloading videos with a resolution of 1080p and above will have no sound. In other words, to protect video copyright, YouTube can be said to be under the full effort.
After long hours of rummage and test, I've found a free and credible YouTube 1440p video downloader - Free HD Video Converter Factory that works pretty well. It will separately download video and audio streams, then automatically combine them together into a complete video file. Here's how it works step by step.
Go to YouTube, open a 1440p video. You can also filter the search results by 4K, which contains 1440p resolution. Then and copy the URL from the browser address. Alternatively, right-click on YouTube video player and select "Copy video URL" in the context menu. YouTube playlist or channel URLs are also supported.
Launch Free HD Video Converter Factory and open "Downloader". Click "New Download" button to create your first download task. Press "Paste and Analyze" button to parse your pasted 1440p video URL. It will display all available resolutions after a short while. Select 1440p option and click "OK" to add it to download list.
Specify an output folder, lastly, hit "Download All" button to download 1440p videos in bulk.
When the downloading process is complete, you're able to close "Downloader", then open "Converter" which enables you to edit and convert the downloaded 1440p videos. Explore more practical features if you have a further need.
Actually, there are plenty of free online video downloaders that claim to download 1440p videos from YouTube. However, you will be disappointed as most of the websites don't work as expected at all.
