I inspected the metadata via EasyTAG and everything is correct. All metadata is the same but the error will pop-up randomly on just some songs; even within the same album only one song will show an error. The error window will pop-up, and then must be manually closed, over and over again, while it reports no actual errors. Several songs will play, and then some minutes later the Error pop-up will display "Error Playing File" which had already played. So I went back to start the song again, and took a screenshot as evidence of this bug.
A second option would be the ability to disable error popups all together, since near-zero people care if there was a metadata read error, so long as the songs play, which they do.

  • Tracker changed from Bug to Support

Please attach an example file that triggers the error message.

Most flac tracks run between 18 to 35 MB. So I cannot.
Besides, this would not help to explain why only one track in an album throws this Error. And, it does not do it every time that particular track plays anyway. Therefore it is indeed a bug, but you can call it whatever you want, so long as it is resolvable.
