There are various occasions when you attempt to free download 8K from YouTube. For example, it took 15 minutes to load an 8K 4320p 60fps video on YouTube and the video kept buffering, and you wanted to download them for smooth playback offline, or you'd like to rip them off YouTube for safekeeping in case they are taken down. Free video downloaders are a dime a dozen for the task, but few of them really support YouTube 8K video free downloads. Compared to 4K/1080p HD video downloading, coping with 8K Ultra HD 60fps video is more strenuous than you think.
