The window allocates 500px * 500px for the artwork, but the screen stays black.
The "Play" button is pushed, but nothing is played (stays at 00:00).

I can play this file with Windows Media Player.

Thanks if you have time to look at this!

A workaround is to change the preferred splitter for .m4a to Haali. You can do that with the Codec Tweak Tool.
