Summary of the bug:
Mpd v0.19.18 no longer plays m4a encoded files. Here is the bug report made against mpd wherein one of their developers suspects that the bug reported lies with ffmpeg. The technical details are above my head so please see his or her comments in that report.
How to reproduce:
A free test file maybe obtained like so:
Playing with ffplay works as expected but playing from within mpd does not. The complete mpd.log is available at the link above but it essentially echos the following line thousands of times and does not play:
Aug 07 16:35 : ffmpeg: avcodec_send_packet() failed: Invalid data found when processing input
I attached here the output of
ffmpeg -v 9 -loglevel 99 -i example.m4a per the directing webpage although I don't know what value it adds.
