1080p, also known as FHD, indicates a resolution with 1920 pixels displayed across a screen horizontally and 1080 pixels vertically. A video in 1080p, although not of the best quality, could bring you a good viewing experience. Therefore, if you don't have an extra high demand for video quality, the 1080p resolution will be suitable in most cases. That's probably why you want to convert YouTube to MP4 in 1080p.

To download YouTube to 1080p videos, there is an ocean of tools available for help. However, their qualities vary and you should pick them up carefully so that you can save the YouTube video you like. To help you get things done, here I'd like to show you how to use different YouTube to MP4 converters to download videos from YouTube. Read on to check the details and carry out the way best suited to your needs.

Part 1. How to Convert YouTube to MP4 in 1080p with Desktop Downloader

You may think using an online YouTube to MP4 downloader is your optimal choice to convert YouTube to MP4 in 1080p. That's not the case since it's really hard to find an online tool that is without ads or redirections. Given that, you are recommended to try a desktop-based program like EaseUS Video Downloader, a reliable video downloader for PC. Such a tool frees you from being bothered by ads and redirections and allows you to download YouTube videos in different qualities. More specifically, EaseUS Video Downloader enables you to:

YouTube is not the only website it supports. Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and more are also included.

To convert YouTube to MP4 in 1080p:

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Video Downloader, select the format and HD quality you need and click the gear button for downloading subtitles optionally.


Step 2. Copy the URL of the YouTube video and then click "Paste Link." Then it will start converting the YouTube video to MP4.


Step 3. Wait for the downloading process to finish. Afterward, you can check the video by clicking "Open File Location."

Part 2. How to Download YouTube to 1080p MP4 with a Browser

It is also advisable to get videos from YouTube using one of the browser extensions. A browser add-on allows you to get things done without leaving the YouTube site and spares you from copying the video URL. You can easily download YouTube videos to 1080p MP4 by clicking the download button offered by the extension.

Most of them work quite similarly. Here I'll take one of them as an example:

Step 1. Add the YouTube video downloader extension to your browser, e.g. Chrome.

Step 2. Restart the browser and go to YouTube.

Step 3. Search for and then play the video you'd like to download.

Step 4. Now you will see a "Download" button under the video. Click the "More" icon next to it and choose the 1080p quality to download. If you don't see the button, click the extension icon from the toolbar of the browser and then choose the 1080p MP4 option to save.

Part 3. How to Convert YouTube to 1080p MP4 Online

If you don't want to download anything, either a program or an extension, using an online video downloader is probably your preferable choice. However, in addition to the flaws mentioned above, like being filled with ads and redirection, there are other disadvantages. For example, some of them may fail to analyze the video address to obtain the video resource. While others may be quite slow and take a long time to download a video.

If you still prefer such a tool, you can search from the Internet and find the one you trust to apply.

The Bottom Line

With the methods above, you can not only download YouTube videos to MP4 in 1080p but also save them to other qualities like 8K and 4K, as long as the video source allows. The next time you want to save videos from other sites, these tips are also applicable to capture the video you need.
