I didn't investigate very closely (and my android 8 device has always 
ignored opus files!) But I'd guess it's either a bug with re-assembling 
the larger metadata header or the buffer the player is passing to the 
sniffer for file identification is too small.

There is a 16 MB limit for metadata in the Android ogg/opus parser. Your 
cover images aren't that large are they?
