MSNBC Rachel Maddow Show video downloaded but can't be played

Hi, I added the feed from MSNBC Rachel Maddow Show, it downloaded 214 MB from last night's show, and says it is "Ready", but when I try to play it,I get a message that says "This item cannot be played: No Activity found to handle Intent{action+android.intent.action.VIEW data=file:/// sdcard/DoggCatcher/EpisodeEnclosures/8/ pdv_maddow_netcast_m4v-02-22-2010-194057.m4v type+video/quicktime}.

Do I need to do something, like download Quicktime? I have rebooted the phone. The phone is an HTC Hero.

I have not tried any other feeds. One of the demo feeds worked fine. It was something from Netflix.

UPDATE 2/24/10
Doggcatcher still won't allow me to play the video podcast, but I was looking through the photos I took yesterday and was surprised to find a video there. It was the MSNBC Rachel Maddow Show video! It played just fine! I am thrilled, because I would have to double my cable TV bill to watch her. Now it's watch anywhere!
Regards

What DC version and device are you using?

I just tested it on a nexus one and it's working fine. I do have some changes that will be in the release after next that will most likely fix the problem, but I would like to find out why yours isn't working.

DC version

I don't know how to find the version on my phone.I got it off the Android Market a couple days ago.
My phone is an HTC Hero.
Again today it downloaded the RM show and told me it couldn't be played, but again I found it in the photo album, and it plays just fine. I'm thinking about deleting the feed and starting over. As soon as I can get to it.

Log file

I would be surprised if re-creating the feed helps, but it won't hurt. If it doesn't work, then you can send me the log (debug log in dc menu) right after it happens and I'll take a look.
