I know Micheal mentioned that to me elsewhere but I don't see it.
Attached log of avplay & mpv failing on a sample opus clip created with opusenc, also shows ffplay having no issue

Note that I've tested on another brand new install of 14.04, straight up with only repo packages

To test one could take any supported file & encode to .opus, a .wav or .flac will do
For convience will attach small clip, encoded with opusenc defaults from a .wav

This patch is included in libav 9.11, which I've uploaded to unstable recently. We really should sync it into ubuntu as well.
