I am trying to subscribe to a BBC radio podcast e.g. http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/.../today/rss.xml
I am doing a copy/paste from the url shown on the website -
Sometimes when I do so it works fine. Other times I get a dialog saying 'invalid link (404 or timeout)' so I got a wireshark trace (aka ethereal) and the HTML GET request seems malformed, ie "GET /podcasts/radio4/today/rss.xml\004??????? HTTP/1.1", where the \004????? refers to non-ASCII chars (04 3f 3f 3f etc). When i run itunes and do the same thing, the GET is formatted normally. I'm not an HTML guru or anything, but I'm pretty sure it should be ascii, right?
