When I try to add a podcast by feed URL, http://tnp.theeggbeater.net/dircaster.php, I get an error "Something went wrong. Make sure the URL is correct and try again."

The web page makes two requests, and there are some messages printed in the browser console, one an error.

This could be related to the fact that I'm at work and there potentially are network policies in place preventing normal communication (I see lots of "Prevented fallback to insecure connection" and "All connections to ____'s Plex failed" messages).

Experiencing the same issue. Feed works on other devices but not through Plex:
