audacious version 3.4.1
affects ffmpeg plugin

..some of the opus files won't load. ffplay plays them so I think it's the audacious plugin. I cant attach file due to size restrictions. Where do I mail it to?

Try a file sharing service such as Box.com or Ubuntu One.

Interesting. The ffmpeg plugin here doesn't advertise ".opus" as a file extension it can handle, so somewhat later the mpg123 input plugin mistakenly accepts the file when probing its contents.

A temporary work-around is to rename from *.opus to *.ogg.

Odd, it seems av_probe_input_format2() is unreliable. In my own project I skip probe and just use avformat_open_input() followed by avformat_find_stream_info(). That way the file is opened and detected correctly. Btw, out of the 8 files I encoded, 2 have this problem.

The proper file extension would actually be .oga since .ogg is reserved for Ogg Vorbis [1].

Regardless, mpg123 should not be picking up this file. Using the same decoding flags as in 3.5-devel seems to fix the problem:
