Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2014-07-14 18:45:35 UTC
But it is somehow intermittent:

It seems like after a couple of attempts ctstream "se chytí", but not sure why.

Comment 3 Petr Pisar 2014-07-15 07:44:40 UTC
These are intermittent, but frequent, hiccups on the server. If you run the command with `-v' option to get debugging output, you can the "errorSOAP looks like we got no XML document" text comes from the server.

I could check the should-be-URL for URI grammar and die sooner.

I believe this happens if you request the server for a video that is not yet cached, so the server returns gibberish instead of blocking until the video becomes ready or returning proper non-2xx code.
