Friday is Free Day – 4K Video Downloader

Leave a comment

4K Video Downloader is another free video downloader available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms. One cool feature that separates it from other video downloaders is that it gives you an option to download subtitles if they’re available.

4K-Video-Downloader“Simple yet effective” – that’s what users usually comment on the application. Just copy the video URL and click the Paste Link button. You’ll be given options on the quality of video you want to download and if it has subtitles, it also gives you the option to download them in SRT format. The video formats vary from MP4, MKV, M4A, and FLV. You can download videos from Youtube, DailyMotion, Facebook, and Vimeo. Playlists can also be downloaded but if it’s more than 25 clips, you’ll have to get a license key. Still, not bad.

Other applications offered by 4K Download are MP3 extraction apps, slideshow maker, and Instagram image grabber.

2 Comments

If you’re using an x86_64 architecture of Fedora, and having problems with Flash player installation for Firefox, follow this quick tutorial.

Flash Player

Flash Player

1. (This is optional) If you’ve tried installing Flash on your system, remove it first. Include nspluginwrapper too.
[root@hostname username]# yum erase flash-plugin nspluginwrapper*

2a. Install the rpm package for 64-bit plugin created by Leigh Scott.
[root@hostname username]# rpm -Uvh http://www.linux-ati-drivers.homecall.co.uk/flash.x86_64/flash-release-1-2.noarch.rpm

2b. You may also download the rpm package and install it from your downloaded directory. Assuming that the file is in your Downloads folder:
[root@hostname username]# rpm -Uvh /home/username/Downloads/flash-release-1-2.noarch.rpm

3. Install the plugin using yum.
[root@hostname username]# yum install flash-plugin

Check if Flash player is installed. This rpm works for Firefox and Opera and from Fedora 12 or newer.
