These feeds are missing the <enclosure> element:
So these are not valid podcast feeds.

Workaround could be to accept <link> element for such an invalid feeds, but I am not keen adding it as it isn't according to spec at all:

link: The URL to the HTML website corresponding to the channel.
link: The URL of the item.
enclosure: Describes a media object that is attached to the item. More. <enclosure url="" length="1069871" type="audio/mpeg"/>

So it would generally result in downloading html content instead of the real media content.

Nevertheless we already done similar hacks in the past (0006196) so adding this another exception in 2316:
i.e. whenever media url cannot be found another way and the <link> element exists with known media extension, then the link is accepted as the media link.

=> Fixed in 2317
