Running into a little trouble with huffduffs from poptech.org/popcasts. On huffduffer the download button seems to work but the player shows an "error opening file" message. Not working in the podcast at all.

ref: huffduffs 1943 and 1944

Thanks so much. Huffduffer is great - I am really enjoying it!!

Bugger! I suspect this has something to do with the query string in the URL to the MP3 file. I don't think it's something I'm going to be able to fix if it's a problem with the Flash MP3 player (until a new version comes out).

Ah, there appears to be something on the PopTech server that forces the MP3s to download (rather than playing in the browser). That's probably what's confusing the Flash player.
