Default Switching to potplayer from itunes, some of my m4a files will not play

Hey sorry if there's a common issue with this but after 5 minutes of googling I couldn't find anything. With that out of the way I've decided to switch off of itunes but some of the m4a files I've added to the default playlist because it says "Can't play media file, the file seems to exist but does not seem to have any video , while some of the other m4a files play fine. It seems to only be an issue with songs that I've downloaded a long time ago but I would love help to manage to get it to work and stop using itunes.

Can you upload the m4a file that PotPlayer fails to play? Does any other player play the same file or probably it's corrupted.

That's the file I dragged into itunes and it added that song, I honestly just dont understand. So this should just be that files issue then right and not some weird thing with potplayer?

That's just a reference to the file (almost like a playlist) - it tells iTunes where the file is.

What EldonW just said. It's not the actual m4a file.
