malformed start tag error - Python, BeautifulSoup, and Sipie - Ubuntu 10.04

I just installed python, mplayer, beautifulsoup and sipie to run Sirius on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine. I followed some docs that seem straightforward, but am encountering some issues. I'm not that familiar with Python, so this may be out of my league.

I was able to get everything installed, but then running sipie gives this:

/usr/bin/Sipie/Sipie/ DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead import md5

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/Sipie/", line 22, in <module>

File "/usr/bin/Sipie/Sipie/", line 74, in cliPlayer
completer = Completer(sipie.getStreams())

File "/usr/bin/Sipie/Sipie/", line 374, in getStreams
streams = self.tryGetStreams()

File "/usr/bin/Sipie/Sipie/", line 298, in tryGetStreams
soup = BeautifulSoup(data)

File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 148, in goahead
k = self.parse_starttag(i)

File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 226, in parse_starttag
endpos = self.check_for_whole_start_tag(i)

File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 301, in check_for_whole_start_tag
self.error("malformed start tag")

File "/usr/lib/python2.6/", line 115, in error
raise HTMLParseError(message, self.getpos())

HTMLParser.HTMLParseError: malformed start tag, at line 100, column 3

I looked through these files and the line numbers, but since I am unfamiliar with Python, it doesn't make much sense. Any advice on what to do next?
