[RDD] RDCATCH https url download

I was able to successfully download the file via CURL in terminal. I was able to get this to work without changing the user agent from whichever the default is.

My other thought. The URL has many spaces in it, which get turned into %20. I'm wondering if RDCATCH is parsing this as a mistaken wildcard. However, I tried adding additional % in front of each %20 with no luck. I tried also just putting in regular blank spaces.

One of our partners hosts their audio files on an web server that
rejects any request coming from something else than an actual web browser.
We had to modify the source of Rivendell to change the User Agent to a
"common" web browser. It works like a charm.

Maybe that's the problem ? To be sure, just try to download it with cURL
on commandline. If it succeeds, then we might want to look somewhere else.
