error reading metadata
I have many files that only Audacious won't play. Been that way on all versions. Never changed.
Here is an example:/home/bt/Music/ALBUMS/The Hollies - 1967 - Butterfly
Hope someone can fix this VERY old problem. For years I thought I had bad files, NO, just a bad player.
I really like the features of Audacious, but it needs to play every song thrown at itlike every other player in the world.
And, yes the box is ticked for it to guess at missing metadata.

I am using 4.1, and cannot play the following file:
It says, "error reading metadata" in dialog box.
Furthermore, in the status bar it says:
avformat_open_input failed: Invalid data found when processing input
The file was generated using youtube-dl --audio-format vorbis, and any other program I tried opens it besides Audacious.
