&title=Youtube+Video+Name

Example: &title=Tom+and+Jerry%2C+60+Episode+-+Slicked-up+Pup+(1951)

Just copy and add the above to your FlashGot generated mp4/webm/flv link in Available formats.
I tested with BitComet but should work with all download managers.

So what, you're saying that by doing that, the filename of the saved file ends up being "Tom and Jerry, 60 Episode - Slicked-up Pup (1951).ext" rather then "videoplayback.ext" ?

Yes. It shows proper file name and .ext if "&title=" is used instead of usual videoplayback.html file name.
If FlashGot automatically adds "&title=" to the generated youtube links in "available formats" and auto copy the youtube video title name in the link. (spaces must be converted to + and , must be converted to %2C)
If the video in OP is used as example, the youtube link at the end will look like this: &title=Tom+and+Jerry%2C+60+Episode+-+Slicked-up+Pup+(1951)
This causes BitComet to show proper file name with .ext "Tom and Jerry, 60 Episode - Slicked-up Pup (1951).webm"
If FlashGot fixes this videoplayback.html issue, we wont have to manually keep renaming to proper file name every youtube video we download.
