I have found an issue with the way that the current link to the mp3 file passes through the link: results in the naming of the mp3 as redirect.mp3 when you download it in firefox. I have noticed that the podcasts that come off the twit network, which also pass through do not have the problem, Leo changes the link by removing the “?http:/” part so the link that looks to work correctly in firefox and still passes through is that should help with anyone that downloads like i do we have to do the following
a. download the mp3
b. copy the link location
c. paste it somewhere so we can get the actual mp3 file name.
d. rename the downloaded redirect.mp3 to the correct name that was copied in step c.

love the podcast keep up the great work.

[…] I just listened to the latest pod cast on Open Audio, the first interview in this episode discusses the Giver project. Cool stuff that makes it a lot more easy to just quickly send over that file that you needed directly from one to another. Interesting stuff…. […]

This is really great information. It looks like many innovative ideas are started and implemented in the open source world. Keep up the good work. 🙂
