Some ID3 tags impact playback.

Bug Description

Some ID3 tags (the exact combination/version, yet to be determined) will cause Flywire to fail on playback attempts.

Songs seem to load into their respective panels, but if queued, will not play - nor is an error printed to the console. (The player is created and started and the playlist prints that it has received the MediaPlaying event).

According to tests done by Chris Hodgen, the likely culprit appears to be an embedded image using the PIC frame for ID3 version 2.2.0. Such files are commonly generated by iTunes using downloaded album artwork thumbnails.

I will try to confirm this soon.
