There are many YouTube downloaders that enable you to download YouTube videos to MP4 or MP3 files. While when you are going to convert YouTube to an MP4 video file that is longer than 2 hours, some of them may not perform as you expect. That's because downloading long YouTube videos requires higher stability of the video downloader. That's why I'd like to show you a desktop YouTube to MP4 downloader instead of an online one.

Convert YouTube to MP4 Longer Than 2 Hours - EaseUS Video Downloader

Whether you are looking to download YouTube to MP4 or MP3, the desktop video downloader, as well as the video to MP3 converter, will be a workable choice for you. It enables you to:

  • Download videos/audio from 1000+ websites for offline watching/listening
  • Download online videos to MP4 or MP3 at different qualities
  • Download video/audio files to a computer
  • Convert your local videos to MP3

Most importantly, it has no limit on the length of the video or audio file. That means you can even download a YouTube video to an MP4 file that is over 10 hours. When you are looking to convert YouTube to MP4, it will provide videos with different qualities for you, ranging from HD to 4K. The highest video quality the downloader will offer depends on the source video.

Besides, it generally works faster than online YouTube to MP4 downloaders. Thus, it will save you much time downloading long YouTube videos to MP4.
