FLAC plugin broken on Windows 8.1, FFMPEG plugin works
Playing back certain FLAC files on Windows 8.1 in Audacious 3.6 will immediately cause Audacious to crash and the application to close. Disabling the FLAC plugin and relying on the FFMPEG plugin to handle FLAC playback works. I suspect this is a bug in the upstream FLAC library, since Clementine 1.2.3 exhibits very similar behavior on Windows 8.1, and they determined it was a bug in dependency code.

Can anyone else reproduce this? Preferably on a Windows 7 machine?
I can confirm that Audacious 3.6.1 is crashing on Windows 8.1 64 with the provided FLAC file but since the reporter says it's a problem with the upstream library this bug report is actually invalid.
In Windows 7 64 Audacious doesn't crash.

I'm skeptical. Has anyone confirmed (i.e. recompiled libflac and tested) that this really fixes the crash?
I surely won't test it, 'cause I have exactly zero desire to install Windows 8.1 again, besides mingw which takes a lot of time to properly set up ;-)
The OP ought to test it, but so far it seems like he's lost interest to this bug report.

You may help by compiling libflac with the proposed patch. There's no need to post screenshots or any debugging information - the crash has been successfully reproduced.

I apologize for posting the screenshot, I followed the link upper on this section, https://git.xiph.org/?p=flac.git;a=commitdiff;h=a84587061cab4d55fa2668ea431d3b61e711c8a3 but I don't know how to compile on Windows, Would yo be so kind to redirect me to any link related where I can learn how to do it? Also installing 3.6.1 version under Ubuntu 15.04 with the last kernel I have problems like this:
ERROR plugin-init.cc:132 [start_single]: No output plugin found.
(Did you forget to install audacious-plugins?)
But the plug in is already installed from the same repository, Do I must report this on a different tag?
I will appreciate any help, thank you!
