As of today, 04-10-21, my registered and paid version of 4K Video Downloader gives me an 'error' message now and won't download anything.
What's a good youtube video downloader?

YouTube constantly changes (breaks) things. 4K will surely have an update soon that makes things work again.
That's what I keep thinking. So far, it's been an increasingly long hiatus.

I just updated 4K Video Downloader to v4.14.3.4090 x64 and tested it on this video and it worked without issue. I'm using the free/unregistered version.

I noticed in the changelog that it said "channel fixes" were coming soon. Are you trying to download from an individual video link or are you trying to download from a channel link?

I just tried to download the link you gave, with my registered version, first with mp3 selected, then mp4, and failed both ways.
Not sure what you mean as per channel vs individual link, but it sounds like you're onto something.

edit: Individual, I think. Channel is multiple?

This link is to an individual video: https://www.youtube..../watch?v=Mrcb5dJjACM
This link is to the channel where the above video came from:  https://www.youtube....BXGSyV14uvJ4hECDOl0Q

You may need to contact their support. It seems everything is working fine for me. They may not be aware of the issue you're experiencing. Or maybe it has something to do with IP address restrictions?

4K still never works anymore. I reported it to them; no response.
