If I am right then this error appears when server doesn't supports DMs or session expires while transferring download request from browser to IDM. One more thing, when you uninstall IDM, do select "Complete uninstall" followed a CCleaner cleanup, and lastly by a reboot. May be this could help.

i would think on the contrary because 1.the server was supporting idm before when i was downloading many videos of varied lengths and still downloads normal web pages,

2.the console straightaway shows that the file can not be downloaded(it does'nt even try to install the file)so there is'nt any question of session expiring,

3.i have tried to completely uninstall idm but it still doe'snt work..
is there any other thing that can be done??
thanx

some security or other settings of the server must have been changed and that's why it won't support downloading using IDm anymore I guess - you better try some different browser with proper extension/addons if you are downloading flv/mp4 vids or some other download manager ( or newer version of IDM ) with browser integration feature.
