Perhaps the embedded album art is too big.
Possibly ask the guy who did the firmware tweaks why, what he's changed etc?
The only thing I can conjecture up is different "compression" levels.Maybe 5 does play and 8 don't.It is a rare but I know in the past some streamers had difficulties with 8
http://mazda3revolution.com/forums/2014-2017-mazda-3-skyactiv-audio-electronics/207938-android-auto-bluetooth-call-issue-fixed.htmlThere is a lot of info on the tweak you are mentioning on this thread. I have a 2016 Mazda 3 and was reading up on it a while back.JXL
Using a lossless format in the car is a bit overkill anyways. I transcode my FLAC files to AAC with TVBR at 256 kb/s using qaac and I consider that to even be a bit of overkill. Transparency can be achieved at much lower bitrates.
Can you link the firmware modification you're testing?
AIO has FLAC support built into their installer and I thought you could use it.... my bad.
I saw the thread discussing this tweak by Diorcity and your posts. You may be better off just picking a new format that the infotainment system can handle natively and get rid of the tweak.Using a lossless format in the car is a bit overkill anyways.

Today I tested compression level.Once again I used FLAC 1.3.2 from https://xiph.org/flac/. First I decoded the original problematic file to wav.Then I encoded it again using all 8 levels separately.I placed all 10 files on USB disk: 8 new FLAC files, WAV file and old FLAC file.All files except the old FLAC are working just fine.
SergSlim, can you run mataflac.exe --list file.flac on problematic file and post console output here?
