I have never had that problem with it before but I think it really depends on the source or from where you are downloading the video. YOu can also try updating the download engine from time to time.

Since it has always worked for me, I've never felt that I needed to change that setting, so I just left it alone.

I think I was recently sharing my automatic youtube download solution. Basically, you paste all the links in links.txt, press enter on a batch file, and everything specified will be downloaded and converted automatically. The software that I'm using for this is Youtube-DL, and it's updated regularly. I will re-post it if someone interested. I'm using this solution for years for my youtube download needs, and I'll never look back.

well, if you look at it ponte's is really a gui wrapper for youtubeDL which it uses as the download engine.

this would save me some hard drive space though

The first time I used pontes, I had the same problem with not being able to switch formats, but it's been okay since, and I don't know what changed. Maybe it had to do with the video length, I don't know.
