Solved Could not import file!

Hello everyone,
I noticed a few days ago that my queued yt-links stopped working. So i started investigating. I noticed that some songs worked and some not. I updatet the sinusbot, ts client and made sure youtube-dl is up to date too. I manually checked youtube-dl and it works fine. Uploading the same songs manually doesn't bring up any errors either.
But if I try to queue them with !qyt, they just get skipped. If I import them using the webinterface I get a "Could not import file" error.

So here's the log showing the error (log level 10)

Thank you and happy Easter
