HD Quality Media Downloads are MIA

We used to be able to select the quality (Small, Medium, Large) for downloading media files such as conference talks. These options have recently been removed and now we are given a file that is a bit less than 720p quality. I realize the large 1080p files soak up quite a bit of bandwidth, but I'd s...
