Soundcloud podcast feed does not stream?

Your spam filters seem to have annoyingly blocked my post so I replaced periods with "dot"

I have this feed added in my DG:
freetalklive dot com/netcast dot xml

All was well until recently the feed switched from a Libsyn feed to Soundcloud. Now the "stream" feature on DG no longer works, I am forced to download the file. This is inconvenient because the file is usually 50MB+ and the show is about 2-3 hours.

So for example when trying to play this 5/3 file in DC with stream it does not work:
soundcloud dot com/freetalklive/ftl2012-05-03/download

But this does:
traffic dot libsyn dot com/ftl/FTL2012-04-09 dot mp3

Sorry about the spam thing,

Sorry about the spam thing, we had to tighten the rules...we've been getting a ton of spam lately.

DC is using an embedded android media player for playback and streaming, so what probably happened is that the new feed is pointing at a media file that isn't supported by streaming with the android media player.

Yep, but not all files are

Yep, but not all files are streamable with the android media player, although most are. This also seem to vary based on either android os version or device, I'm not sure which.
