How to add file types in IDM?

Though by default IDM supports many file formats it cannot identify some files. This problem can be solved easily by manually adding those extensions you need. So the next time IDM will be able to recognize those files and start downloading as usual.
Here is what you have to do to enable new file extensions in IDM.
Step 1:
Open IDM from your computer and go to the Downloads tab. Then select options from there.

Step 2:
Then you will be taken to a new window ‘Internet Download manager configuration’. Now go to File Types tab. There you can see a text box with the default supported files. Add the file extension that you want to add after a space.

For example see how I have added FLV there.
Now you are done with the addition of new file format to IDM. Next time you can see IDM automatically detect the added file format and download them instantly.
