  1. Was trying to download the Godfather panel from tonight...

    Every program I use only allows the SD video feed. Can anyone see what the problem might be?

  4. I'm not sure what was deleted but I know the answer that I used was definitely in there. Now I can't remember how to do this anymore. Has it gotten easier since I originally posted this? I'm still only getting SD.

  5. I am running Win7 Pro with SP1 x64. I also have ffmpeg.exe for Windows - available from in the same directory (folder) as my youtube-dl.exe
    Choose Ffmpeg version to suit your O/S. Download the Zip and extract. Inside the 'bin' folder copy ffmpeg.exe (plus the other 2 for future use if so desired) into same folder containing youtube-dl.exe

    Update your youtube-dl to latest version (note uppercase U). As of today it was v.2018-08-04.

    youtube-dl -U
    Play the Facebook video; RIGHT click > 'Show video URL' or use the URL from the address bar. Either way its...

    Use the -F (note uppercase F) command to see list of available formats.

    youtube-dl -F

    For the 720p video + audio use this syntax (now note lowercase f)

    youtube-dl -f 266576120412641v+m4a

    Job done. You should now have a 720p combined audio/video mp4 of ~1gb runtime 01:34:34
