Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

After navigating to a stack exchange podcast post e.g. and clicking on the download link e.g. the resulting redirect downloads a file with a strange name e.g. wbgXWhv5cS3K.128.mp3

All of the ID3 tags for Title, Album, Genre etc are also missing from the downloaded file. Is this a system problem with the Podtrac service or am I the only person experiencing this problem?

I do not have this problem with any other podcasts I am downloading. I have tried downloading the file directly in Firefox, Chrome and IE9 as well as using Firefox DownloadthemAll extension and the problem exists in all cases.

This should now be fixed with the update to our distribution system.
