Unreadable FLAC files due to Vorbis Comment block

Hi, I’m trying to import an album that plays nicely on all mediaplayers I have (Swinsian, JRiver Media Player etc) but can’t be imported.

I’ve looked on Github and found the following issue.
Is there already more insight into this problem?

Thanks, Jan

In situations like this, it might be worthwhile to weigh in on the same issue! As you can see from that thread, progress was stuck because we didn’t have an example file to work with. If you can add to the discussion and perhaps provide a file to trigger the problem, we may be able to look into it more.

That’s a great idea. I missed that a file was still needed. I’m going to send it to the email address that Christoph mentioned. If it needs to be send to another address please let me know.
