Feed with mutiple videos. How to choose the correct one?

I have a feed I want to add but when I do it just downloads the first video it comes to and that one will not play. They have smaller videos available that will play but doggcatcher just grabs the first one. Is there a work around for this. Here is the feed so if you want to see what I mean. There are 12 videos to choose from and I would like the smallest file twig0037_h264b_432x240_128.mp4 (MP4 Video, 112 MB) but I'm not sure how to get to that one.

Thanks for any help.

Twig video

I just downloaded a video from that feed (epis 37) and the video played fine on the nexus one. Have you tried playing the video in the android video player by launching it from a file manager like astro? If it won't play that way then your device may have an incompatibility between your device and the video encoding. I thought that all android devices supported the same codecs, but I could be wrong.

At the moment there isn't a way to select which video file you would like to download and it looks like the first one (which is the one DC uses) is pretty large 325mb.

I think it has to do with the screen size of video not the fromat. Maybe the nexus handles the larger size better. I've run into this same issue with my own conversions and it was because of the screen size not the encoding. Anyway mediafly has an app now that will allow you to download these videos. I would rather have all my podcast together but at least I can still get them. The app is TWIT.tv

I created an issue

I created an issue for this, I can probably create a feed option to select the index of the enclosure that you want to use when there are multiple enclosures.
