flexRSS plugins fails to download enclosed torrents

Reported by: gothicx@… Owned by: markybob
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: 0.5.x Version:
Keywords: flexrss Cc:


Deluge includes an RSS plugin, flexrss, which I tried to download the Democracy Now daily programme. The RSS URL is

Direct links to the torrents are available at

Directly downloading the torrents works as expected. However, adding the rss file to the flexrss plugin, updating the feed and then selecting "download torrent" from the context menu of the latest programme does nothing.

The same rss feed works well with Azureus and the scaneRSS pluginṡ. I suspect that flexrss fails to parse the rss correctly.

This is the console output:
