Invalid data found when processing input when using Streaming Discord Bot (python)

After refactoring and working on all possible solutions I could find on google I always get the following error:

Invalid data found when processing input

My code snippet:

    "before_options": "-reconnect 1 -reconnect_streamed 1 -reconnect_delay_max 5",
    "options": "-vn -sn -dn"
async def radio(self,ctx,url):
    await self.joinLogic(ctx)
    await self.playStreamOpus(ctx,url)

async def joinLogic(self, ctx):
    if is None:
        await ctx.send("Please join a voice channel!")
        voice_channel =
        if ctx.voice_client is None:
            await voice_channel.connect()

async def playStreamOpus(self, ctx, url):
    source = await discord.FFmpegOpusAudio.from_probe(url, **self.FFMPEG_OPTIONS)

What have I already tried:

  • Re-install all dependencies on pip.
  • A variety of streaming links that were working in the past for the same code.
  • Tried the PCM instead of Opus.
  • Different streaming URLs.
  • More options in FFMPEG_Options to explicit that I need only audio.
  • Made sure that my bot is joined in my channel and can reach other places in my code.

Streaming (sample) links I tried (worked before):

Full FFmpeg options from Debugger console: ['ffmpeg', '-reconnect', '1', '-reconnect_streamed', '1', '-reconnect_delay_max', '5', '-i', '', '-map_metadata', '-1', '-f', 'opus', '-c:a', 'libopus', '-ar', '48000', '-ac', '2', '-b:a', 'Nonek', '-loglevel', 'warning', '-vn', 'pipe:1']

Youtube links work just fine in a similar method in the class.

async def playYouTube(self,ctx,url): 
   await self.joinLogic(ctx) 
   YDL_OPTIONS = { "format": "bestaudio" }
   voiceClient = ctx.voice_client 

   with youtube_dl.YoutubeDL(YDL_OPTIONS) as youTube: 
       info = youTube.extract_info(url, download=False) 
       formattedUrl = info['formats'][0]['url'] 
       source = await discord.FFmpegOpusAudio.from_probe(formattedUrl, **self.FFMPEG_OPTIONS) 

So most likely the problem lies with the URLs, which still boggles me cause they were working before?

Any insights will be highly appreciated!
