Myra updated on Nov 11, 2021 to Video & Audio Downloading
There are numerous YouTube video downloaders that serve to download videos from YouTube so that you can watch videos offline. But not all of them let you choose the video format and quality you want to save. When you need to convert YouTube videos to a specific format and quality, it's necessary for you to get a flexible YouTube downloader that offers different download options for you.
For you to get the 720p MP4 video from YouTube, here are three types of YouTube converters/downloaders introduced.
EaseUS Video Downloader - Convert YouTube to MP4 in 4K/1080p/720p/360p
As a versatile video downloader that helps to download online video/audio from over 1,000 sites, EaseUS Video Downloader has special support for the most popular video site - YouTube.
When you copy a video link into YouTube, you can choose to:
- Download the video to MP4 in 8K/4K/1080p/720p/360p (as long as the video source supports it)
- Convert the video to MP3 or WAV in 320kbps/256kbps/128kbps
- Download the video with/without subtitles
Thus, as long as the YouTube video source has a quality of no less than 720p, you can certainly convert the YouTube video to MP4 in 720p and below. As for other sites, the video or audio will be saved in the highest quality by default. Whether you want to download music from SoundCloud or save Facebook videos to a computer, EaseUS Video Downloader will always help.

YouTube Video Downloader Extension - Convert YouTube to MP4 in 720p Directly
A YouTube to MP4 converter extension, although generally supports video/audio downloader from YouTube only, is the most convenient way to download MP4 from the site.

By clicking the button, you can directly download the video from YouTube to your computer without leaving the site.
Although most YouTube downloader extensions disallow you to choose the target format and quality, the YouTube Video Downloader shown below allows.
