When you search "download YouTube videos" on the Internet, you may find that there are oceans of online or desktop tools that enable you to download YouTube videos successfully. But if you change the keywords to "download YouTube playlists," you will find the results shrink and there are fewer tools available that will satisfy your needs. To help you convert YouTube playlists to MP4 safely and quickly, here I'd like to show you a proven way to get it done. Other than downloading YouTube playlists to MP4, it is also capable of converting YouTube playlists to MP3 when you need it.

Method 1. Convert YouTube Playlist to MP4 with Free YouTube Playlist Downloader

Without being bothered by ads or redirections, you can convert YouTube playlists to MP4 or even MP3 with the video downloader for PC - EaseUS Video Downloader. The user-friendly interface will direct you through a simple video downloading process. Whether you want to download a video or audio playlist, you just need to copy the URL of it and then let the video downloader do the rest.

🎞️After you copy the URL into the bulk YouTube downloader, you can:

  • Choose to download specific or all items from the playlist
  • Convert the YouTube playlist to MP4 or MP3
  • Select the quality of the video or audio

When you convert a YouTube playlist to MP4, you can select the video quality you prefer, generally ranging from 360p to 8K. Other than MP4, you can also save a video in WebM. Besides, MP3 is not the only audio output format for you. WAV is also one of your choices.

To download a YouTube playlist to MP4:

Step 1. Open EaseUS Video Downloader on your computer, go to "Downloader," and then click "Add URLs." 

Open the video downloader

Step 2. Paste the URL of the video or playlist into the box and click "Confirm." Afterward, select to download the whole playlist.

Paste the URL

Step 3. Choose to download video or audio files and then select the format and quality you prefer. Then click "Download" to continue.

Select the video format and quality

Step 4. Wait for downloading process to finish.

Start downloading videos

Disclaimer: Please make sure that your download behavior is legal in your country! EaseUS does not advocate downloading any video/audio for sale, distribution, or other commercial purposes.

As a versatile video downloader, YouTube is not the only site that EaseUS Video Downloader supports. Other popular sites like Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, and TikTok are also covered. But you need to know that, e.g., when you download videos from Facebook, you can't choose the video quality or convert them to audio files directly. The video will be saved with the highest quality available. If you need to extract audio from the video, you can download the video first and then use the "Video to MP3" feature to convert the local video to MP3.

Method 2. Convert with a YouTube Playlist Download Extension 

Another way to download YouTube playlists in MP4 format is to use a YouTube playlist download extension for your browser. You can search on Google to find the best download extension for your browser. 

Here are steps on how to convert with a browser extension on Google Chrome:

Step 1. Add a YouTube playlist downloader extension like Adoncrop to Chrome first. 

Step 2. Enable the extension and then restart your browser. 

Step 3. Open the webpage of the YouTube playlist you'd like to download.

Step 4. Right-click to find the download option set by the extension. Click "Download".

Step 5. Now, you can choose the file format and video quality. If you need MP4 files, click "MP4" and then choose "Download" to start downloading. 

The Bottom Line

Honestly, using a desktop tool is not the only solution to get things done. Indeed, you can also choose to convert a YouTube playlist to MP4 online. However, when you use an online service to download multiple videos, it may be slow and unstable. What's more, online downloaders will bother you with ads and redirections. Given that, using a tool like EaseUS Video Downloader is a more suitable solution for you.
