Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Rhythmbox pops up an error when you try to subscribe to a feed hosted on the Odeo podcasting site. Some example feeds that cause the error are:

The error message says:
Error in podcast
There was a problem adding this podcast. Please verify the URL: http://odeo.com/channel/126064/rss

The relevant output from 'rhythmbox -d' seems to be:
[0x8123890] [rb_shell_show_popup_cb] rb-shell.c:2635 (12:53:23): popup
[0x8123890] [rb_shell_cmd_new_podcast] rb-shell.c:2244 (12:53:26): Got new podcast command
[0x866edd8] [rb_podcast_parse_load_feed] rb-podcast-parse.c:440 (12:53:33): Invalid mime-type in podcast feed text/html

The feed validator at http://feedvalidator.org/ says that these feeds
are valid and they load fine in amaroK.

This is Rhythmbox in Dapper.
