For the last week or so, I've had problems listening to the
http://nrk.no/podkast/ podcasts.

I have problems viewing the podcast lists, like eg.
http://podkast.nrk.no/program/her_og_naa.rss

And if I succeed in viewing the list of available episodes, it will time
out when trying to play a podcast episode.

The rhythmbox music player on Ubuntu 10.10 (version 0.13.1-0ubuntu5)
seems to have no problems listing the podcasts and downloading the
episodes.

Opera 10.63, having the podcasts as RSS feeds have no problems listing
the podcasts, or downloading episodes.

Does anyone know if this has a workaround? Eg. increasing time out time
on the Squeeze Server, or buffering up more of, or all of, the podcast
episodes before playing them?

I'm guessing this could be both a case of time-out when retrieving the
URLs and a throughput issue of the files not being downloaded as quickly
as they are played...?

Thanks!

For whatever reason, today it works without a hitch.
