Soundcloud RSS

Hi I am trying to subscribe to a soundcloud feed by using this service:

http://picklemonkey.net/cloudflipper/cloudflipper.php

It nearly works but each enclosure looks like this

//download" length="3070000" />

It calls each file 'download' so I used the option to make each download a unique filename but now my problem is that each downloaded file has no extension therefore DC doesn't know what to do with it. If I hit such a url in my browser it saves it as the correct filename with a .mp3 extension.

I've generated an example random feed here.

http://picklemonkey.net/cloudflipper/cloudflipper.php?feed=http://soundc...

Is this fixable?

File extensions - I don't

File extensions - I don't think we're going to be able to get this to work if the media filenames don't have extensions in the feed. That's the only way DC is going to know how to handle the file and know whether it's audio/video/etc.

I reckon there's a way. All

I reckon there's a way. All web browsers handle these download links and save them neatly with an mp3 extension.

Failing that you could have an enforce/append extension option.

It's possible

Try adding the below option to your Cloud Flipper URL. It will force a fake .mp3 extension in the flipper URL that enhances compatibility of RSS readers/podcast catchers that require an extension in downloads.

&forceext=1

Your resulting URL will look like this:
