Free Download Manager used to be able to download HD MP4 YouTube videos, but every time I try to download a video I only get FLV files.

I've set the videos to 1080p but they are downloaded as FLV (no sizes are given by the program either).

I'm using Windows 8 32-bit with Firefox, but I also tried Internet Explorer.

Please read How to ask questions. What operating system are you using? What is fdm? What format did you used to download in? What browser do you use? –  terdon Jun 8 '13 at 19:59
I assumed you meant Free Download Manager (freedownloadmanager.org/download.htm) – if that's not the case, please clarify. –  slhck Jun 9 '13 at 8:57
