It fails. Afterwords it attempts to simply use the hostname. I don't understand how this url is routed (likely cause I'm not so smart with the inter tubes and what not). I also don't know if the strange routing in wget is related to my problem with gpodder. What I'm sure of is this is happening because Tim Henson is a dumb ass (he hosts this podcast). It just seems to me that if I can use wget to download the podcast than shouldn't gpodder also work. I used podget for years, then flexget, and now gpodder. For anyone who wants to hear, I think gpodder is fantastic. Good work.

Please note that the Authorization: Basic header contains your password (in mangled, unencrypted form). Please change your password to something else and remove the Authorization header in future bug reports. As for the bug itself, I'll hopefully get around to have a look at it soon.
Comment 2 Eric Smith 2011-12-21 18:49:59 GMT
One thing occurred to me last night. I tested downloading a MP3, posted i the feed in question. This may not represent the errors that I received in gpodder. After all I was never really able to add this feed. So I attempted to download the rss feed via wget. I received the same results as below. wget downlads the file only after resolving the host, failing to authenticated and then authenticating via the unresolved hostname. I also was unable to add this feed in the windows version of gpodder 4.0.1. But because I'm ignorant in the ways of windows I could not figure out how to download in the cmd terminal to see if that worked correctly.

Do you have a test account that I can use to reproduce the bug and debug this?
Comment 5 Eric Smith 2012-01-04 21:32:34 GMT
I asked for a test account. I'll contact you as soon as possible.
Comment 6 Thomas Perl 2012-01-09 13:51:59 GMT
Thanks for the temporary access (via private mail). I've now fixed the issue in Git: http://gpodder.org/commit/0df167ff As a drive-by fix, I've also made sure that for password-protected feed, the authentication data is also used for downloading the cover art (which in the specific feed was indeed a problem - the cover art couldn't be downloaded without authentication - the patch also fixes this one). The fix will be part of the gPodder 3.0.3 release.
