Sounds like an issue getting the right app and playpath out of the
URL. Have you (or the bug reporter) seen this message from Howard Chu:
“Users should just learn to explicitly pass the app and playpath and
not rely on the builtin parser at all”.


Perhaps it might work if you used the “--app” and “--playpath” options.
