Youtube video DL not showing video track when playin

I downloaded a Youtube video using the option+double click method in the Activities Window. The resultant file I appended .flv to and it plays fine in the Adobe Media Player.

When I open the same file in Quicktime Pro, there is only a black image while the sound plays.

I actually though I had set-up Youtube to play HTML5 when possible but I can't even find those settings anymore (got to love Google software). Maybe since the video it was uploaded in flash video days it stays as flash, but I thought Youtube had converted all their videos over (mainly b/c of iPhone market)

Any pointers, hints or advice?

Thanks
Alastair

EDIT:
The audio plays back in QT Pro, though.
