this is a huge milestone for me, i cannot express enough how grateful i am for each and every one of you. thank you for using cobalt, and thank you for showing that people love the web that's friendly and bullshit-free. i'm hoping to never disappoint you in the future and keep up the good work.
thank you <3
if you want to thank ME, check out the renovated donations tab, which now is also linked alongside bottom action buttons.
cobalt does not (and will never) serve ads or sell your data, therefore it's completely free to use. but hey! turns out keeping up a web service used by hundreds of thousands of people is somewhat costly.
if you ever found cobalt useful and want to keep it online, or simply want to thank the developer, consider chipping in! each and every cent helps and is VERY appreciated.
if selected quality isn't available, closest one gets picked instead. if you want to post a youtube video on social media, then select a combination of mp4 and 720p. those videos are usually not in av1 codec, so they should play just fine basically everywhere.
select webm if you want max quality available. webm videos are usually higher bitrate, but ios devices can't play them natively.

when best format is selected, you get audio in best quality available, because audio is kept in its original format. if you select anything other than that, you'll get a slightly compressed file.

downloads original audio or sound used in video without any additional changes by the video author.
