Rhythmbox fails to download podcast

Asked by Justin Dugger on 2009-09-26

For some reason, since the 15th, Rhythmbox fails to download podcasts from "60 second science":

I've dug out a url from today (sept 25th) and wget downloads the podcast fine. Is there a way to get better debugging info out of rhythmbox?

rhythmbox-dbg is in the repos. I tried your link and it worked for me. Have you uninstalled anything recently that would have removed any codecs? You may want to try reinstalling it from the repo's. If you click on rythombox > properties you'll see a list of dependencies.

It's not codecs, that's silly. The download fails, not playback. I'm surprised it worked for you -- it fails on both my 9.04 desktop and 9.10 laptop.

Odd, launchpad claims this is solved?

Maybe you could Click new add the url again and try.

I've tried adding it twice, and all of the episodes fail to download. Running "rhythmbox -d" gave me this:
