Why Is Realplayer Downloading Youtube Videos As Mp4s?

realplayer has always worked fine for me but in the 16.0 version i get the downloading bar on youtube but instead of downloading the videos in flv. format it downloads them in mp4. and then says "error" when i try to play the downloads on realplayer. What's going on? BTW: it wont let me convert the mp4 into another format without buying the full version

Someone else had the same problem. The file converting facility despite what they say on the Website they seem to be pushing for you to pay for it. But you can use the you tube downloader which is better to download in FLV format.
