Bogus errors printed at end of .m4a file (due to use-after-free)
|Status:||Closed||Start date:||December 19, 2016|
When some .m4a files are played the error of:
Error playing file
This happens toward the end of the song, but despite the error audacious will keep on playing. Also when you try to play the song that has the error it will still play. Other audio players do not give an error.

Your file is corrupt, not a bug:
ERROR ffaudio-core.cc:185 [aac]: <0x7f2b1407f200> channel element 3.0 is not allocated ERROR ffaudio-core.cc:214 [log_result]: avcodec_send_packet failed: Invalid data found when processing input

I spoke too soon, there seems to be some memory handling issue between Audacious and FFmpeg. I am looking into it.
