Summary0013696: Podcast: Incorrect URL representation in podcasts
DescriptionThere is some cases where podcast if using regular http:// to RSS feed, but actual podcast download links are presented in https://

So unless there is a login information I would suggest that on SSL error or even by default MMW try using http:// instead of https:// to retrieve podcasts and see if it succeed. Especially if podcast subscription is in http:// and not in https:// there is no point of using https:/ tuneling

Example podcast RSS is where changing every link from https:// to http:// dovloads and plays podcast without any problems.

Changing the protocol would be a hack that I would rather avoid.

Better would be to find and fix why there is the handshake SSL error as this doesn't happen when the same link is put into IE or Chrome.

Tested on

The strange thing is that the link can be played in MM (via menu File > 'Open URL or File...'), but fails to download with the SSL error (via menu File > Download file...)

return "error:14094410:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert handshake" means that they disabled SSL 3.0, and that site is 'safe' and further secure connections should be negotiated using TLS.

here are currently-valid SSL/TLS versions, listed from most-secure to least-secure:

Best to worst:
TLS 1.2 (best choice today)
TLS 1.1
TLS 1.0
SSL 3.0 (has the POODLE vulnerability)
SSL 2.0 (generally not recommended, and typically not even available in modern webservers)
SSL 1 (obsolete, no longer offered)

This should be fixed in Both MM4.x and merged into MM5 immediately as currently MMW uses SSL3.0 negotiation that is proved as unsafe and prone to POODLE vulnerability

Tried updated Indy (with TLS 1.2 support) and it solves the issue (like in 0013071).

You are right, for some reason it doesn't work in 1818 although it works fine on my local sources.

Petr, did you updated sources from SVN before creating 1818?
Is the new Indy included?
