An update: I tail -f the mythfrontend.log and try the podcast again.

It tossed up a ton of lines like:

mythfrontend[30394]: N CoreContext mythplayer.cpp:2095
(PrebufferEnoughFrames) Player(h): Waited 19271ms for video buffers

I let the audio run for a bit and then finally the error "Video frame
buffering failed too many times" came up on screen.

Just curious: why is it complaining about video buffers when it's an
audio podcast?
