iPhone downloads audio podcasts as video

Hi, I've noticed a nasty bug on the 2.2.1 fw. Whatever podcast I download OTA (over the air, directly to the iPhone), the iPhone always labels it as video. That means that when I go to the iPod app to listen to the podcast, I can't turn off the screen or listen to the podcast while doing other stuff.

It's really annoying, does anyone else have this problem?

Just tested it for you. 3 audio podcasts and not a single issue. It may be the podcast you are downloading. Have you tried something else?

Yes I was downloading GDGT and Engadget mobile podcasts, both turned to video.

phew, seems I'll have to restore again....I really seem to have problems with 2.2.1.

I think it might be that only the podcasts which have chapters get labeled as video. That's why GDGT and Engadget mobile podcasts show up as video.

This is a known issue for OTA downloads with these podcasts. They are working with Apple to try and resolve this.
