Most streams have multiple redirects in them at this point. What
you'll want to do is find the true destination for that stream and
enter that as the URL.

I know that Eckhart Köppen updated NHttpLib to handle redirects (and
you mentioned you tried it), but I'm not sure if he updated Mad Max to
follow them as well or what the status of that side of things is.

I wouldn't say it's a lost cause, but I guess this is really a
question for Eckhart as to whether he's going to provide any updates
or whether we have to provide patches to his source code.
